We were expecting a lot, but we’ve got basic food, which was just OK. My soup was too salty. My daughter’s pasta was uneatable. My wife was lucky to get tasty black ravioli, but my chicken was strange attempt to make something new: rice with jam, with nuts. The chicken itself was smoked and grilled with no success unfortunately. We have paid 2000 hryvna for moderate lunch with no alcohol drinks. I regret about spending my money here

The food was sublime but the best part of this place was the exceptional service, among the best i have seen in Kyiv. Our waitress was attentive from beginning to end without being overbearing, making us feel like special customers. The place was filled with positive energy and we will definitely return. Keep it up! :)

Went there for a quick lunch, lucky to get a table normal its very popular, maybe because of easter. Had small brioche burgers, pita with shrimps, mini salad nicoise, celeri and Basil lemonade and one with melon. Everything is so tasty this place and service just another level.
Not my first visit, and defently not my last

If you are in Kiev, looking for a well designed, exquisite, modern yet cozy and delicious place, that the "Life of Wonderful People" (hopefuly correctly translated)is the place to go.
The food was amazing with some twists that made it unforgettable. We were seated at the bar and enjoyed wonderful service, interaction and positive attitude of the bar personnel. Miroslov, barman, made superb drinks and eventually treated with a complementary cocktail as well.
Overall, visit to "Zhizn" made our day.
