Destinations’ review: The architectural style of Reef restaurant can be an immediate indication of its Mediterranean theme. There is no doubt that Reef aims for a new level of gastro sophistication in Kiev. An open kitchen provides a glint of steel, fronted by the water-filled cases of gleaming whole oysters and lobsters. Everything is carefully chosen here — from custom locally made tableware to the stylish utensils.
Address: 16A, Shota Rustavelli street, Kyiv

Destinations’ review: Crab’s Burger restaurant in Kiev is an unexpected combination of tastes that is worth trying out. It is the first Crab House and Seafood Bar in Ukraine with the concept of affordable food and adapted variant of Asian cuisine. The main menu consists of crustaceans: crabs, lobsters and dishes with lobsters, popular seafood, such as oysters and shrimps, along with tartars made of various species of fish, spicy Asian soups and salads with crustaceans. The anchor meals are the legendary black and white burgers with crab and lobster meat.
