This is Kyiv's quintessential theme restaurant, decorated in rustic 18th-century style and filled with tour groups from the nearby Lavra. Ukrainian staples are superbly done, but the most famous dish is the dessert of salo (cured lard) in chocolate. Despite being a tad overdone, it's easily the best restaurant in Pechersk.
