Restaurant Recomendation - Kyiv
« on: 13:40 27-Feb-2018 »
IBSEN - rating: very good, almost excellent



Went here over the weekend: Ibsen

Had the steak.  Friend had the Salmon.   
1-5, I give it a 3.75-4.

Food and atmosphere were really good.  Cooked well, good ingredients.   So was the service.  So was the atmosphere.  Only criticism, portions could have been bigger (wanted a big steak, not a little steak) but quality experience and food.


BIGOLI: Italian.   Rating: sh-t.



Before we went there, stopped in at Bigoli, Italian.  Sh-t, so walked out.

They tried to get me to check my coat in for 10 min.  I had to keep telling them, "I'm keeping my coat on."  F'g idiots; a person can decide for themselves if they want a coat checked or not.  (Mind you, subfreezing temp outside.)  Got annoying really quickly.    The place was also empty.  Had a coffee and and the waiter kept interrupting taking forks and glasses off the table ... so said 'F'k it, let's get out of here.'   

It's a Foo Foo place, that tries to pretend to be up-scale but ends up giving you a douche-bag experience for your money.

Much prefer the other place.

The outside area is heated; have no fear sitting outside even at night.  Sofas are good.
