Description: Georgian restaurant with excellent genuine cuisine; best out of all we tried in town. Everything from food to service was perfect. Full bar, with nice selection of Georgian wines (by Badagoni). Summer terrace is a smoking area. Service charge of 10pct is included. Tricky to find but certainly worth it.

Out of all restaurants I’ve ever been to Poltava, Mimino remains unrivaled. My return visit this June was no less delightful than the previous one, a while ago.

Although not centrally-located and a bit tricky to find, it is worth specifically going for to try their delicious Georgian cuisine. If you are driving from Zhovtneva/Zinkovska Streets to Marshala Biryuzova Street, turn left BEFORE the bridge going up across the railways; the restaurant is located under/opposite the bridge. When you drive off the highway, you’ll see Mimino hotel complex that the restaurant is part of. Parking is outside, between the trees.

In summer, an open-air covered terrace is established; it was lovely to sit there even when it rained outside. The only problem is this terrace is a smoking area.

I don’t need many words to describe food. Everything was perfect.

Khachapuri (puffed bread filled with eggs and cheese) [USD4.25]; bozbashi-soup [USD2.5]; Mimino shashlyk [USD8.6] or mutton shashlyk [USD11.25], home-like fried potato with onion [USD2.5] and pickles [USD 1/100g] are just a few entries of those worth mentioning. And what a delicious cranberry and raspberry fruit-drink (mors) they serve here!

Georgian wine offered in Mimino is by Badagoni, recently admitted one of the best brands exported to Ukraine. But I tried better Pirosmani (semi-sec red); Badagoni makes it too sweet for my taste.

Service is not overly smiling, but reasonably attentive and fast. 10% service charge is added to the bill, but we were happy to tip on the top.

Mimino remains the best restaurant I tried in Poltava: excellent food, decent service and a great value. Shouldn’t be missed!
