a business trip to the Ukraine, I wanted to try traditional Ukrainian food, and the hotel staff recommended Sloboda. I specifically asked whether this is a place that tthe locals go to, and the answer was that it was. Certainly when we were there were no other foreigners. On the other hand, there were hardly any locals, either. The place... More

The atmosfere of cozynes was everywhere, the service was excellent and the cook was perfect with his traditional dishes which were really delicious.

I asked my company to take me somewhere traditional and that's exactly what I got. I was greatly surprised by this very flavourful restaurant, decked out as a country house as it is. The food was excellent, I had borsch - without doubt, the best I've ever had - and lamb cuts served with a tangy, slightly bitter fruit sauce.... More

I visit this place often and don't plan to stop do that. Sloboda is the one of the oldest Kharkiv restaurants with autentic Ukrainian (and other) food, wonderful appearance (both inside and outside), always friendly and helpful staff. The number of salads, appetizers and main courses are really impressive - and almost all of them are very very tasty. Of... More

This place was absolutely wonderful. The three of us sat outside. The entire property is themed in traditional Ukrainian / Cossack history. The menus are made of and bound in leather. They do have menus in English, but if you have never partaken in traditional Ukraine food, ensure you have a translator with you. I had Borsch for the first... More
