Description: It’s been ten years since we started sharing our best values of Caucasian hospitality, authentic taste and warm atmosphere. The taste is everything, and we have two head chefs working to its perfection day-to-day, Tristan Arabuli and Gurgen Sarafyan. Both of them have been here since the very opening, implementing their cooking styles into our concept. Gurgen is Armenian; he is in charge of the meat here. Thanks to him, our shashlik is always tender and juicy. Tristan takes care of the pastry - in his traditional and unique purnei oven delicious khachapuri (Georgian cheese pastry), flat breads and pies are made. Georgian food is always served with the finest wine. We did our best to collect the biggest Georgian wine collection in Kyiv and often host wine festivals to let every guest get insights of the great Georgian wine culture. We respect and maintain the traditions but we also gladly create them. Two years in a row our restaurant received Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator!

Can't help returning to this restaurant again and again because of the absolutely perfect meal. Even the terrible service can't turn me away from this place.
Georgian cuisine is the restaurant's specialty, but you can find some Ukrainian, Oriental and European meal as well. I recommend giving preference to meat and bbq (shashlyk) rather then fish. And don’t forget about hachapuri and dolma!
Located in the centre of a lovely public garden with fountain nearby, close to St.Nicolas Church (Organ Hall), so you can have dinner before listening to organ concert. Summer terrace is commonly given to smokers. Children’s menu available.

We chose Kuvshin from a list of restaurants that will deliver to your home. We had high expectations and....wow ...they excelled our expectations. Really good food and lots of it.

I would happily recommend this restaurant and plan to have a second helping by visiting Kuvshin "IRL".
