Nebos ... Kiev Raw Vegan Restaurant Review

You might have seen on Facebook or Instagram that I have been to Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Not much guessing needed, I came to run in Kyiv. Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon 2015 it was, I had the opportunity to see the backstage and the race itself and I ran the 10 km race as "my" autumn marathon is coming in three weeks in Frankfurt. I will come back to the race itself in another post, but today I wanted to share with you this little gem. Kyiv is certainly city full of contrasts. I also found a great raw / vegan restaurant I was amazed by! Called Nebos (more photos at VK, which seems to be some local sort of Facebook), "nebe" in Czech means sky or heaven, so this place certainly is heaven for me :D

My TripAdvisor review:

Heavenly place not only for vegans

Thank you Trip Advisor for pointing me towards this place. Totally affordable and what is more, really delicious raw / vegan food and not only for vegans. I had falafel-cherry tomato burritos and napoleon cake (raw take on a traditional Ukrainian cake). Both simply amazing deliciousness. Mineral water served automatically free of charge, free wifi, very helpful, caring (not that usual in Ukraine) and English speaking staff. Can only recommend! (BTW the restaurant is just around the corner from the main Independence Square - Maidan of Kyiv)

Burrito with falafel and cherry tomatoes

Raw take on "Napoleon cake" ... Napoleon is traditional cake in Ukraine, unfortunately I never tasted the original version. The raw option was delicious though!

Pancakes with banana and chocolate ... you can never go wrong with those!
And yes I ate a lot, but it was 3 pm and I only had UCAN before the race and nothing after until now :)

So good I came for seconds!

I don't usually do this, but I was so amazed by the delicious creations of Nebos, that I went in for second time in the same day (I was leaving later that night) and got take away to my hotel room. The food was as delicious as on my first visit, only wrapped up to go. 

Raw dinner to go <3

"Open Cheese Pie" as they call this, I would call it raw take on Quiche :) 
Mainly based on cashew nuts, but also lot of veggies.

Surprisingly delicious salad.

I think this was raspberry cheese cake, what I know is that it was delicious!


  1. Tak to jídlo vypadá fakt moc hezky. Nejsem ani vegan ani nejím raw, ale tohle bych si dala :-)

    1. Jo, jo, přesně takový to bylo! Jako že Ti vůbec nevadilo, že tam není maso a je to raw. Spíš naopak. Všechno je o kreativitě a o přístupu :o) Mňam!

  2. Thank you for sharing. I bought a tour to Kiev I'll be there after a month, sure I'll go to that restaurant. I like the look of these meals :) Why is this? Yes, I'm a vegan.
