    Great Georgian restaurant with a very beautiful interior, average for Odessa prices, good cuisine and service located right next to the parking of the airport of Odessa. It is a part of a chain of 3 restaurants - all of them in the city of Odessa. The focus is put on meals with different type of meat, but there is everything for everyone. For a company of 3 people we paid for lunch with salads and main dishes (no alcohol though) around 50 EUR so the prices are average for Odessa. The payment could be done in cash or by all major credit cards. If you are with car parked at the parking of the airport - don't forget to give to the waitress your parking ticket before leaving the restaurant (she will do something and return it to you)and you will pay less or no parking fee on departure from the parking.

    Favorite Dish: The vegetable salad in Georgian way, all the types of shashlik, the Georgian lemonade

    Bernardazzi: romantic dining.

    by bushdevil Written Oct 18, 2012
    romantic dining at restaurant Bernardazzi Odessa.

    central located in a beautiful old restored building, with cosy terrace and romantic seats and tables.
    It is one of the most romantic and cosiest paces in Odessa.
    There are regular perfomances and wine and music evenings, because it is also a stage theatre for music, plays, exhibitions and so on.
    The quality of the dishes is amongst the best in Odessa, fresh, artistique decorated and exquise prepared.
    They have some magicians working in the kitchen!
    The service is friendly and several members of the staff spoke English.
    The menu is also in English and their sommelier put his advise of wines behind each dish, very pleasant and convienient.
    This restaurant has the biggest collection of wines in Ukraine and the recently won an important international wine price-decoration.
    My favorite dish was seafood salat, grilled tuna with saffron rice and salmon carpaccio.
    I have visit most of the known restaurants in Odessa, but Bernardazzi is really top, not only for a romantic dining, but also for a business lunch, a cosy meeting with friends for a drink or even a wedding party or a company meeting.
    This is now my favorite place to visit in Odessa.
    About the prices, very reasonable and check their website for more information, it is in English to.
    Good luck, kind regards,

    Jim Malinka Malinka Services The Netherlands.

    Favorite Dish: seafood salat, grilled tuna with saffron rice, salmon carpaccio.

    It serves simple and healthy food, which my family loves. You will get a bakery to every order - it's a rule. Good thing - they have summer terrace just on Deribasovskaya and homemade drinks, pasta and pies. Compliments to Chef! Thing we didn't like - it's busy in evening, maybe popular by locals.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled salmon was perfect. Nice spices choice and fantastic tomatoes as garnish.

    Ukrainian Lassunka: Many Temptations

    by hunterV Updated Oct 1, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are so many temptations where to go and what to do in Odessa in the evening.
    One night I took my American friend Omar to a genuine Ukrainian restaurant located in downtown Odessa in De Ribas Street.
    My friend and I enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the food there.
    The design is truly Ukrainian.
    At the beginning of your meal they offer all the customers a shot of Ukrainian moonshine with a piece of fat as a gift from the company, a symbol of Ukrainian hospitable character. We refused the treat two times for we could not even endure the smell of the moonshine and asked the waiter to take the glasses away...
    You can order a lot of Ukrainian national dishes and have a good time there.

    Favorite Dish: You can order a lot of Ukrainian national dishes - varenyky, borshch and others - and have a good time there.
    Ukrainian varenyky with cottage cheese!
    "Cappuccino Lassunka" company cocktail - a nice one
    as well as "Amadeus" cocktail!
    They also have their own web site:

    Mick O'Neills: Irish Pub

    @ Mick O'Neill's
    3 more images

    This pub located in the old historic street downtown is very popular among foreigners.
    It has two floors (one half floor) and a large bar decorated with banknotes from the whole world glued to the ceiling. They bear autographs of the customers who presented the bartenders with those banknotes.
    There is also a computer with Internet ($2 an hour) to the left of the entrance for you to work on the Internet, if need be.
    This Irish bar is a unique establishment not only in Odessa, but also in the entire Ukraine.
    They say the pub's chef was trained by the Irish chef Davids Lowror for two years. The chef makes miracles with the dishes. You can taste true Irish dishes here and imagine you are in Ireland for a while. It was very striking for me as a first-time customer.

    Favorite Dish: Charles Grill Steak –
    roast beef with garlic oil, mushrooms, Irish spices and vegetables.
    Pork Ribs Barbeque – the ribs are pickled in barbeque sauce and are frilled medium. They say it is good with Guinness.
    Buffalo Wings – chicken wings cooked in Irish style (pickled in sauce consisting of tomato pasta, honey, broth, leek, oil, vinegar, chili sauce and soya sauce. It is served with Buffalo company sauce (“Taco” sauce, “Chili”, “Tabasco”, soya sauce and ketchup).
    They also serve different sorts of beer here: six sorts of beer, among them one Ukrainian :
    Obolon Magnat and also: Guinness, Kilkenny, Paulaner Turbid, Heineken, Harp.
    Tequila Sinrise is the company cocktail there.

    Bohemskiy Restaurant: A taste of delicious freshly brewed Czech beer

    by vmakul Updated Apr 4, 2011
    4 more images

    Traditional Czech cuisine plus some improvised dishes from Ukrainian and Russian cuisine. I was pleased to find that they make their own sausages, pickles and smoked fish. In my opinion the best beer in Odessa is brewed in Bohemskiy. There are 3 constant varieties of beer: lager, red beer and dark beer. One variety swings from firefighter ale to wheet beer. Live music on weekends, live football etc... Very beautiful design, Prague train station hall is the one that i remembered the most.

    Favorite Dish: Vepřové koleno
    (pork knee, cooked using an old czech recipe. Served whole. Weight of one portion 600-1000 g.)
    Chech pork knuckle, it is so delicious, one cant resist finishing it all even though it is so hefty to tackle towards the end.

    Kumanets: Ukrainian theme restaurant

    by arturowan Written Mar 29, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kumanets attempts to re-create a traditional Ukrainian menu, such as would have been eaten by the native folk a century ago - this is the theme for the restaurant & the decor & dress of the waiters & waitresses, reflects this. Their traditional costume is one of the delights of the place, especially the chaplets the 'dyevooshkee' wear in their hair, causing some to compare the venue to a 'Ukrainian Disneyland'! I think is unfair, because the place is authentic enough, even if it is a romantic vision to assume that peasant folk ever eat this well or in such culinary conditions...

    Favorite Dish: THE highlight of the menu for me are the flower infusion green & black teas served in a ceramic pot - food is fine & fair portions, a bit too salty for my taste, but so it is always in Ukraine...

    Ukrainian wrap, a sandwich in lavash

    this is a very convenient spot to have a bite while heading to Langeron beach on Uspenskaya St. Located across the Polish Consulate, this place positions itself as a coffee house and claims to have the best coffee in time. can not confirm or deny it as I didn't have a coffee there. but can definitely attest that they have very decent wraps (sandwich in lavash) to kill your hunger for couple hours.

    Steakhouse: Meat&Wine and Beyond

    by om_212 Updated Sep 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    a very cozy and stylish place in the very center of the city. variety of dishes in menu, with the strong accent on meat and wine. so it's totally crazy to have something else, like... just a salad :). BUT if you are in a hurry and/or looking for a quick lunch, or a vegetarian dragged to this place by hungry meat-eaters, go for the salad bar. you will not be disappointed. The salad bar has 5 different salads and fruits. A small plate will cost you 20 UAH ($4), the big – 28UAH ($5.5). as for steak, I will have to try it next time. My friends said it was absolutely delicious.

    P.S. oh, completely forgot. don't leave the restaurant without checking the bathroom (even out of curiosity).

    Favorite Dish: Finally, this September (2010), I had a pleasure of having the meat and wine expereince. I tried their Chicago steak with a bottle of Australian Syraz. after dinner we went for Aftersteak, a lemon sorbet based on Limonchello di Capri, and for hot dark chocolate souffle on caramel ice-cream. I have to confess this was one of the BEST dinner experiences I had in a long time.

    Gallo Café: The Best Breakfast Place in Town

    delicious breakfast
    2 more images

    we both agreed that this was the best place for breakfast. delicious breakfast menu and surprising 20% off for those who come for breakfast from 9 to 11 am (Odesites must breakfast after 11 am), together with an excellent ambiance (British style ) and a cute waiter who said in Russian "Gortsitsy nema." our only advice goes to female waiters: please change or at least hide your disappointment with the fact that customers do come to breakfast early :) other than that, this is a definate "come back."

    Favorite Dish: French toast with home-made sausage and pauched egg was really good and very generous. I combined it with another special, capuccino and croissant. two breakfast cost UAH 48 ($6)

    besides that, the breakfast menu included ususal suspects including: crepes and pancakes, omlet and cappucino and croissant.

    Ellisar Lebanese Restaurant: Feel Like Middle Eastern?

    entrance to Ellisar Lebanese Restaurant

    this place has been recommended by a colleague, who visited it before. the place is very nice and pleasantly decorated (I have never been to Lebabon, so the interior reminded me of Turkey). It’s quite big - two levels inside and the terrace outside. we chose the inside.

    Favorite Dish: were looking for "group" offer but didn't find it, so we have ordered 4 different starters (hummus, tabulli, labneh and something else which I don't remember). naturally, it came with pita bread. for the main dish we all got different kinds of kebabs. the food was very good and portions were pretty generous (according to Ukrainian standards :) the whole dinner (with beer) cost us around $15 per person.

    P.S. the place has been closed and is currently occupied by Top Sandwich, which seems to be very popular chain in Odesa. (Sept. 2010)

    zesty lemon cake and basil-based tea
    4 more images

    This artsy street cafe, decorated with hand-made fabric dolls and cats, cried to stop by, at least to admire the creativity and ambiance. the decor is well-thought to details. Besides the dolls and pieces of fabric, every table has a signature flower pot with green basil.

    the place has a comprehensive lunch menu and a good dessert list. I opted for the latter. I had a fragrant fresh basil-leaves tea with a generous slice of the lemon cake. it was a good experience, though a lemon cake was a bit too lemony, but in the combination with the coconut-based crust it was good.
