Fanconi was a cool place to hang out several years ago. It was considered fancy and many pretty girls could be seen there on any given evening. The food was bad then, but the sushi was good with a cool atmosphere. That was then...

I have been to Fanconi MANY times. The last few times I went there, the service was sooooooo bad and slow that I could not stand it. The sushi quality has gone way down and it is very over priced. Oh, and don't expect to see anyone smiling there. The employees have NO idea what service is. You will wait 30 minutes to get your drink and be angry when it arrives. If there is a problem, the manager will only give you a bad attitude served with a frown.

I rarely write bad reviews, but sometimes a place is so bad that people need warning. My advice is to go anywhere in Odessa, except this place. Hopefully someday, the owners will decide that fast, friendly service and good food are important. Until then, stay away!

But the problem is the food...If you are hungary in Odesa city center at night that's the only alternative to go..Bot be careful...They do not know to cook anything...especially be aware form the Italian choices like rissotto, pasta, etc..

As far as we understood, in 2012 the owners changed - and with it the quality of the food. In the past you could sit, see and be seen plus having some reasonable Sushi. But this year the quality of the Sushi dropped, dry, hard...

It's still a nice place to sit, have a drink and shisha - but not to eat!

The food in fanconi is delicious and reasonable priced. The waitress was very polite & skilled except that she and all staff still have to learn to serve the red win in a red and not white wine glass. For having diner it shouldn't be as dark - you even want to see the food.
The ambiance was fine.
For a reservation we should have paid USD 50 ... for sure we did not - even the food was cheaper!

Cuisine was OK in Thai/Japanese Style, service very poor, prices too high, people unpolite. Kind of tourist trap.
