I loved this little french bistro. The raw oysters were outstanding with a wonderfully salty taste. The salmon baked in clay was one of the best pieces of salmon I've ever had. The price was a tad higher than the rest of the neighborhood but...More

Very nice foie gras with peach and Duck with pears. Excellent taste. If you are into European French food; go here. You'll not be disappointed. Nice wine selection too. Value for money. Great 60s French music adds to the atmosphere.

It is a nice spot, with a good decoration. We sat outside, it was pleasant. The food was really good, even though more expensive than the other restaurants but had a nice cuisine.

We pitched up here at noon for a spot of lunch. Not the cheapest place in Kiev but very nicely presented and friendly service. 'hungry man breakfast' - 188 UAH with 250 ml coca cola [38 UAH]

Great service that is very willing to fix any faults. Food is good but expect to order many portions before you are full.
