Undeterminable from this photo, but most probably (there are not so many kitchen flies) a member of repleta-group (in greater magnificatin, mesonotum has conspicuous pattern of darker dots).

Thanks. As I just learned, common indor drosophilas in Europe are malenogaster, subsobscura, ambigua and funebris (else?). Can be it from that ones? I made some photoshoping to the fragment of the picture to expose detiles.
