There is a very special restaurant that can become one of your favorite places in Kyiv if you like to travel and to taste something new while the voyages. It is located on Pankivska street. We will talk about “Lubimy Diadia” (Beloved Uncle) restaurant.
The main idea is that the Uncle is a tireless traveler who constantly explores new countries. When he comes back to Kyiv he brings home a lot of different interesting things like renovated Japanese motorbikes, collection of old clocks and vintage furniture. Therefore it is more interesting here than at home but at the same time the place is very cozy and warm.
The interior is properly divided into 3 comfortable and spacious areas: the living room, the library and the kitchen; the summer terrace is offered during the hot season. Exterior wall and the wall facing the courtyard are made of glass and are fully sliding. During summer period the room will be opened to both sides: to noisy Zhilyanska street and to a quiet courtyard. Some furniture was ordered on eBay, for example, vintage chairs came from the United States.
Multicolored motorbikes arrived from Japan. There is an electronic fireplace in the living room and you can find many interesting books on the bookshelves.
The restaurant offers original cuisine with the elements of Greek, Israeli, Moroccan, Algerian and other Mediterranean and African elements. This fusion of tastes and flavors lives in a peaceful harmony and thanks to Vitaly Ivaniuta, the restaurant’s chef, it can satisfy any gourmet. You can choose not only traditional drinks but also one of three types of liquors for the winter evenings: “Hunting” with seven herbs, “Cherry” with bourbon and “Blackberry” with gin.
Here you can have early breakfast starting from 8 a.m., ask for “kids’ menu” and spend a nice Friday evening in a bar zone with some cocktail.
It is a place for rest with friends or alone, a place where you can read a favorite book or write the one of your own.
