We’ve compiled a quick list of the top-rated restaurants in Kyiv. These places have garnered acclaim both from professional food critics and independent, travel aficionados. Their dining areas are conducive for other activities as well, like placing your bets in your favorite casino games at SCR888.

Kyiv, Ukraine


Our first destination is a feast for the eyes. The Odessa at the corner street of Velyka Vasylkivska is known not only for its piquant menu but also for its innovative and stylish architectural design. One might say you’ve never really eaten in Kyiv unless you’ve dined at the Odessa.

The restaurant owes its popularity to the world-famous chef Yuri Priemsky and his gastronomic mastery. Patrons come to Odessa for its sophisticated menu made up of a zesty combination of local produce and a surreal taste of varying international flavors.

Among its bestsellers are the veal cheek with zucchini and basil cream and the mussels tempura with avocado aioli sauce. Fresh fish lovers may also want to try the teriyaki catfish with buckwheat noodles.

BAO Modern Chinese Cuisine

BAO Modern Chinese Cuisine is the go-to restaurant for those who can’t help but crave shumai, noodle Mami, dim sum, and Peking duck.

BAO is Ukraine’s first Chinese cuisine-focused modern restaurant, inspired by the evergreen bamboo forests of Asia. The interior may look familiar because of its communal tables, but the open kitchen provides service that is something uniquely modern.

The meals are prepared by renowned chef Hector Jimenez-Bravo, whose specialty dishes include the Atlantic langoustine with sweet and spicy sauce and dim sum, then topped with desserts by our distinguished pastry chef.
