Spotykach is an interesting restaurant -- a modern take on classic Ukrainian food. The true test is doing both well at the same time, and they achieve it. Many of the other diners were tourists or expats, but there were what appeared to be many...More

Very good food and wine, in a location inspired by Soviet-Era aestethics. Excellent traditional and modern Ukrainian cuisine. Service was also very good, and we will definitely be visiting again.

Excellent place to try traditional Ukrainan food. Interesting also for the vodka based liquor enthusiast - lots of different flavours. Very reasonable prices at this somewhat Sovietnostalgic establishment.

I was a guest and the food just kept coming. Everything was beautifully presented and extremely tasty. I think I was given just about every local dish to try. My host insisted that I drank vodka to "help the digestion" and by the end of...More

Yes, Spotykach really be proud! With such care together under one cover the most famous culinary hits of the Soviet era have not for everyone. Here is what restaurant critics over the years will be called "Ukrainian cuisine of the Soviet period," and the mere process of reading the menu is wild appetite. Salad leaves traditional herring under a fur coat, Olivier, Mimosa Capital, salad with beans and a dozen names. Then begins an even more pleasant discoveries. Take, for example, herring with anchovies on potatoes with onions or perch with mushrooms, fried pancakes. Sated fangled delights metropolitan restaurants audience inevitably return to the simple joys that are certain to become trump card Spotykach.
