After a quick stroll with your sweetheart near the river it is time for one of the most delicious Italian dinners in all of Nikolaev. A quick taxi ride across the river will bring you to the front door of Grandi Pomodori.   An amazing establishment composed of a highly trained and attentive staff awaits your arrival. They do their best to bring the hospitality of a small Italian cafe to the banks of the Yuzhniy Bug River. The design and decoration is very inviting and pleasant, making your dining experience so warm and wonderful. From the romantic second story balcony dining area with very comfortable couches to the countryside style cafe seating available downstairs in the open and inviting main floor.   An accurately translated menu prepares you for your dining delight. Appetizers are plentiful, fresh, and delicious. From bruchetta to grilled vegetables, light and delicious salads will all also compliment your evening out. Assortments of freshly prepared soups are available and delightful.   It is hard to look past the well stocked bar and large selection of wines that are available. They can satisfy any taste you may bring to the dinner table. As always, I recommend that you try some of the wonderful local vodkas available, an evening without trying one of the honey-pepper flavored vodkas is almost incomplete!    The main menu brings many wonderful choices to your table, whether you want to try a pasta dish, fresh oven-baked pizza, delicious seafood, or a large variety of grilled entrees. The selection of freshly grilled meats is amazing, from bone-in steak, to chicken, to pork chops and fresh fish. I must admit that the grilled chicken and the salmon are the most wonderful selections.   A sweet treat to end this amazing evening begins with many choices. A delicious milkshake flavored with fresh bananas or vanilla is always a great idea. Fresh cakes and pies are also available, along with the always delicious Tiramisu.

Restaurant Dejavyu We would like to introduce you with a very nice place where you can relax, try Ukrainian food and spend wonderful time with your friends. Our suggestion is Restaurant Dejavyu in Nikolaev. Let us start by staying that from the moment you will walk through the door you know you are in for a treat. Coming from America you will be pleasantly surprised to have an attendant take your coat while the more than attentive hostess will seat you. You will be more than amazed at the collection of "Cold War Era" memorabilia. It is so interesting to be able to see what folks on the other side of "The Fence" had to think about the west.   Seating is very comfortable and promotes wonderful conversation. Waitresses bring large wonderful menus full of Ukrainian and other Eastern European delights.   One cannot visit without sampling the Borsh with Pampushki. Absolutely amazing!!! Another delicious treat are the dumplings. They are stuffed with potatoes or onion or beef and dressed with sour cream. Appetizers, salads, and drink selections are also plentiful. We must recommend any and all of the juices; these are something without comparison in the US. While here be sure to sample as many different kinds of vodkas as you can handle J there will be plenty of opportunity for sampling during your evening and your visit. We must insist that you try the honey pepper flavor, it may sound scary but it is well worth it.   The restaurant Dejavyu is located in City Center complex , so there are a lot of other attractions close by to keep you busy and entertained. A casino and billiard hall make for an exciting after dinner entertainment. There is also a fine cigar shop located in the complex, which by the way can sell you Cuban cigars. A large supermarket with many choices of groceries and supplies can keep you satisfied for anything that you may need to purchase. A large Mall is also located here, you can even buy a nice pair of Levis blue jeans here J High end Electronics and sports apparel is also widely available here.   We hope this helps in making a positive impression on your research when you are thinking about visiting Nikolaev, a truly wonderful and inviting city
