Restaurants in Kiev

The elegant Old Town offers high-end options, while central Kreshchatyk has everything from cheap and tasty stolovaya (canteens) like Domashnyaya Kukhnya, to elegant Euro-Asian fusion at Concord. Reasonably priced beer tents line the riverside parks of Lypky and Pechersk in summer. Most restaurants open 12pm-12am, but 24-hour options can also be found citywide. A tip of about 15% is usual, and not included.

Pervak

Quality Ukrainian cooking

Recognised by many as the best of the traditional Ukrainian restaurants, Pervak, off main street Kreshchatyk, has tried to recreate the elegance of turn-of-the-century Kiev. Set in seven separate rooms - many with balconies or open fires - its extensive vodka selection is recommended, and the weekday business lunches are exceptionally good value.

SSSR

Post-Soviet kitsch

South of the city in historic Pechersk, the SSSR summer café offers the full Soviet retro experience, with ultra-kitsch dishes including a hammer-and-sickle-shaped sausage, and specialities from each of the former Soviet republics. The traditional Soviet holidays are still celebrated, and guests can catch their own carp or perch to be cooked to their specification.

Puzata Hata

Busy Ukrainian buffet

Literally the 'House of the Pot-Bellied Peasant', Puzata Hata at the bottom of central Kreshchatyk is a cosy, chaotic eatery offering traditional Ukrainian favourites including pampushki (rolls), homemade sausages and vareniki (dumplings). Hugely popular at peak times, an early dinner or late lunch is often advisable.

Domashnyaya Kukhnya

Ukrainian home cooking

One of the traditional stolovaya (canteens), Domashnyaya Kukhnya, on central Kreshchatyk Street is packed at peak times. With plenty of choice including homemade salads, soups, and beer, it's possible to have a traditional Ukrainian feast without breaking the bank. Some dishes might surprise foreign palates - salo, for example, is simply pig fat.
