Belvedere, High Class Restaurant on Dnipro Hill

9. May 2011 by Michelle 0 Comments

Located in the historical heart of Kiev, at the top of the Dnipro Hill, Belvedere Restaurant gives guests panoramic views of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra and the Dnipro River.


All of the tables are strategically placed so that every diner can see clearly out of the wall-length windows, and summer terrace seating is also available.


One of the Ukrainian capital’s most up-and-coming chefs, Natalia Tershchenko, currently heads the kitchen and designed the menus, which include special summer selections, Japanese fare with flambé and Wok, Winter Garden, and Desserts.


“Unfussy presentation, simply named dishes, seasonal changes to the menu, and quick efficient service are things which I believe to be very important,” says Terschchenko.


Fresh seafood is delivered to the restaurant twice a week, while lobsters and oysters live in aquariums. Meat dishes are exceptionally seasoned, from the T-Bone and Rack of Lamb to the Quail and Deer Filet.


The extensive wine and cocktail list never leaves guests thirsty. Ladies love the “Belvedere”, the restaurant’s signature cocktail made with white rum, melon liquor, banana liquor, lemon juice, orange juice, pineapple juice and grenadine.


While Belvedere is quite pricey, it always receives rave reviews as a high class restaurant. It serves as the perfect location for a romantic date with your favorite Russian bride!
