International in Odesa

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the City Garden, this classy, cosy, ivy-covered place is awash with antique furniture and fine art. The menu is inspired by the food people make at home in the broader Black Sea region. That means local fish, delicious vegetable stews and various kinds of khachapuri (Georgian cheese pastry). We loved the charcoal-grilled mussels.
