Visitors to Kiev who wish to enjoy a delicious Ukrainian meal in a traditional setting should definitely check out Tsarske Selo restaurant.

Located in the heart of Kiev next to the Pecherska Lavra, or Monastery of the Caves, Tsarske Selo opened its doors in 1998 and has been wowing patrons with its perfectly prepared, authentic Ukrainian dishes for 12 years. Diners can enjoy the usual staples here. Borsch, varenky and salo, and kvass are all available. However, adventurous souls may wish to try more creative dishes like chocolate dipped salo or cabbage soup in a bread bowl.

The atmosphere alone makes Tsarske Selo worth visiting. Tsarske Selo, or Tsar’s Village in Ukrainian, is modeled after a traditional 17th Ukrainian village and the owners have used real antiques to set the scene. The main, smoker-friendly dining hall is composed of four themed areas: By the Ox, The Bright (or Main) Room, Under the Apple Tree, The Mill, and At the Terrace. Non-smokers can dine in The Wine Cellar, a room based on the interior of a castle, and those who want a more intimate setting can request The Attic, a cozy, secluded area set above the main restaurant. Traditional Ukrainian music and servers in national costume complete the quaint ambiance.

When visiting your beautiful Ukrainian woman in Kiev, why not try Tsarske Selo restaurant to enjoy traditional Ukrainian food in a unique and cozy setting?
