Restaurants

It wasn’t long ago when there were only two types of restaurants in Kiev; simple affairs serving basic local fodder or elite establishments serving foreign businessmen and wealthy Ukrainians.

Recent years have seen an upsurge of mid-range restaurants catering to the city’s emerging middle classes and regular tourists.

The list was last updated on Friday 29th of November 2019.
