Visited Khutorets on a business trip. We were treated to a wide selection of starters and main courses.

The restaurant has a BBQ and many of the dishes are cooked whilst you wait.

The setting is fantastic, it is on a barge on the Dnieper.

In terms of location - it is slightly off the usual tourist track or, at the very end of the river walk, but that's about it if you want to complain about something.
The moment we went in - we were looked after as very valued guests.
Once you have ordered, a complimentary (and very delicious) bread and lard-herb spread was brought in.
They have several rooms sizing from a banquet hall to a cozy corner for romantic moments. All of them have a light traditional decor with slightly different vibe in each of them.
A special cool room with huge collection of vodka for customers to try, but in my favourites (despite me not being the fan of vodka in general) are "Hrenovuha" with horse radish and "Malinivka" with raspberries. Those two are A MUST to try!
N.B. If you have alcohol limit or have a slight digestion discomfort - try "Kvas"- fermented dark bread drink, or "Kefir" - fermented milk drink. Both of them are very good for diversity of your gut bacteria and will have less than 0,1% of alcohol. Totally nonalcoholic alternative, or if you want tasty still soft drink- "Kompot" (typically apple and sultanas flavoured).
Borsch is a very tasty traditional Ukrainian beetroot soup you should not miss and in this restaurant is a must (I even forgot to take a picture as dived in straight away).
They were running an "Olivier salad festival", so we ordered a selection of 4 versions of it. It was superb! I have eaten this salad countless times, but here every version I tried instantly became my new favourite.
"Golubci" a mince meat and rice wrap in a wilted cabbage leafs and "Draniki" grated potatoe pancakes were ordered as a main course. In here they have potatoes fine grated which, believe it or not, do promote a different taste to those if they are grated on coarse grater and were exactly as I like them (texture might not be for everyone though).
Portion sizes are not big making it to be positioned as not the cheapest place to eat, but we left well stuffed.
Since it was a friends birthday treat I didn't wanted to leave without a cake but seeing us hesitate our waitress was quick on offer to share one. "Medovik" a layered honey and cream cake was again up there with the best of them and left us both happy.

Will we comw back - most deffinately! After a description of the place to our friends - it will be a place to go for all of us when in Kiev.

Every time I’m visiting Kyiv, I come here for 3 years in a row. They have amazing food especially home-made liquors. Simply the best in town. The service is great which follows always by nice takeaway when you leave.
Absolutely must visit place.

If you want to visit traditional ukrainian restaurant which offers a perfect service and high quality food - Khutorets on Dnieper is probably the best place. Perfect view on the Dnieper river, the most delicious chicken kyiv, vodka room, and borsh is amazing!
