Al Fresco Restaurant by Yodezeen

Yodezeen have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Europe Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2023.

Situated near the entrance to Kyiv, the newly established Al Fresco restaurant stands as an embodiment of meticulous craftsmanship. Constructed from the ground up, the building itself serves as the foundation upon which an immersive atmosphere takes root, requiring a dedicated span of ten months for completion. 


The visionary architects and designers hailing from the esteemed Yodezeen team were entrusted with the noble task of crafting a warm and inviting ambiance reminiscent of modern Italy. They succeeded in their pursuit, creating an environment that exudes tranquility and understated elegance, allowing guests to unwind and bask in the comfortable embrace of Al Fresco throughout the day.

Indeed, the entirety of the Al Fresco restaurant project can be likened to a captivating summer sojourn to Italy, a sentiment shared by the tireless Yodezeen team as they poured their expertise and passion into its realization. The facade of the building itself beckons visitors with its gentle eggshell hue and pristine stucco lines, extending a cordial invitation to indulge in the sensory journey that awaits within. Moreover, the strategic use of rustic travertine, the predominant material in the project, adds an enchanting touch, fostering an atmosphere of domestic comfort reminiscent of a sun-soaked country.


In their tireless efforts to ensure the utmost convenience and satisfaction of both staff and patrons, the architects meticulously planned and executed the layout and logistics of the entire restaurant. Spanning an expansive 1600 square meters, this culinary haven resembles a wellspring of delight, featuring a serene courtyard adorned with a captivating fountain and lush greenery that infuses the space with vitality and charm.

Through the synergy of architectural ingenuity and a keen eye for design, the Yodezeen team has fashioned a sanctuary within the heart of Kyiv. Al Fresco, with its carefully crafted ambiance, invites visitors to embark on a journey of sensory delight, enveloping them in the warm embrace of modern Italy and leaving an indelible impression upon all who enter its doors.
