We went to Kumanets one night, and then Lasunka while were in Odessa, and we preferred Lasunka, probably because the waiter engaged with us far better (spoke better english, gave advice, I think I had a free vodka (or was it something else that was gratis), and the food was better quality (not taking licence with their "rustic" tag), nice...

I remember seeing this place last year when I was in Odessa, but didn't go to it last year, but made sure I did this year. It is a lot like Kumanets, which isn't far away at all, but does offer differences. The restaurant is located on the main street of Odessa, Deribasivska, right where the street becomes a large...

This restaurant is decorated in a traditional Ukranian style and is rather attractive. There are two live chickens and a golden pheasant in a wicker cage near the entrance. In the evening there is traditional music and the staff ware Ukranian folklore clothes. In the evening the restaurant is very busy. We visited at lunchtime and although it was very... More

Was visiting the place with colleagues and had dreadful experience with a cockroach in our salad, which was simply horrendous. Even though the meal was replaced we still had to pay for the salad. Overall bad experience and really overpriced place for a mediocre cuisine. Strongly advise to avoid Lasunka as it is easy to find far better national Ukrainian... More

We dropped by with our 3 kids while visiting the City Centre. The decor is neat & the staff very courteous. The food was very similar to what my mother-in-law would cook at home so not a place I would go out of my way to visit again. The desserts on a positive note were presented in an original way...

I really enjoyed this restaurant. We chose the local soup and a main dish with meat and vegetables. We payed about 25 euro per person. Maybe the service could be faster, for instance they could reduce the time between ordering the water and receiving it. The same for the bread..

We enjoyed a light lunch at Urains'ka Lasunka. The atmospheare was typically Ukrainian and there appeared to be a few tour groups eating here. I'm not sure that many locals would come here, as it is fairly expensive. For tourists who do not speak Russian or Ukrainian, it is a safe bet. The red and green borsches were very tasty... More

For me, a romanian traveler, ukrainean food reminds me from home. I tried here the mushrooms borsh with home made bread (with garlic), the home made tagliatelle with cottage chese and the ukrainean beer. I recommend to try the gruzin wines, too. A little glass with local vodca comes for free.

A nice place with excelent service.... Nice local rustic food... A must if you want to try out the local food...For me it is nice to try local food.... and then this is nice. No especially cheap but a lot of locals in the rstaurant too... So not a tourist trap but a genuine local restaurant.
