Lonely Planet review
This fun, if slightly hokey, eatery offers a great introduction to Ukrainian food without breaking the bank. Pumpkin is not just in the name, it's all over the menu – from the mammlyha (Hutsul polenta-like dish) to fresh pumpkin juice. More unusual items on the drink list include birch tree sap and kvas (drink made from rye bread). And there is plenty of horilka (vodka) – pure and pumpkin-free. Set lunch served between 11am and 5pm is a great deal at 43uah.
