The first quarantine relaxations allowed establishments to open their summer terraces. Kiev's rooftop terrace, a summer patio in a business center, a cozy courtyard terrace, a terrace with a waterfront view - we've gathered 10 summer venues that will provide you with true enjoyment when you visit.

1. Vero Vero — сafes in Podil with a terrace

The capital restaurant Vero Vero resumed its operation on May 15th. This establishment is well-known not only for its exquisite dishes and interior reminiscent of classic Italian trattorias but also for its spacious terrace with a fountain. The view from there is also stunning, overlooking the Illyinska Church.

We recommend trying Florentine steaks, homemade pasta, or risotto right here, while listening to the sound of water and savoring the atmosphere of Podil.

By the way, starting from May 15th, the summer terrace has opened not only at this restaurant but also at other establishments of the La Famiglia network: Vino e Cucina, Bigoli, "Kuvshin", Zafferano, Toscana Grill, and Piccolino.

  • Address: 18 Illinska Street.

This well-known Kiev restaurant was also one of the first to open its summer terrace: «The moment has come: Tolstiy & Tonkiy's terrace is ready to welcome you, the guests who were sorely missed here. The team is full of inspiration and new ideas, we strictly adhere to all the necessary rules, and the atmosphere you've been longing for remains unchanged».

When we talk about «restaurants in the center», Tolstiy & Tonkiy immediately comes to mind. Despite its central location, its summer terrace is tucked away from the urban hustle and bustle. Located in a cozy courtyard on Prorizna Street, it's surrounded by an abundance of live plants. It's like a jungle just five minutes from Khreshchatyk, where it's very pleasant to relax with a glass of wine.
