Actually we were passing by and come in just to have some beer. Beer was fresh and we took snacks too. We were siting on outside terrace. I little bit loud, but inside were dark and unfriendly.

The borscht is great. Cabbage rolls are tiny and filled with smoky meats and veggies. The choice of sizzling plates is great with different meats and sausages. Good dessert choices but the wine list is tiny. The outdoor patio is right on the main street. Service is young and fun. English is spoken.

Summer terrace stinks. Too many cats leaves terrible stink of urine. Your clothes would smale also. Unforgettable place....

I had read so much about Friends and Beer, it was one of the first places I tried to find last year when I was out and about. I found the place to be a bit hard to find, but was able to find it in the end. It's one of the many places in Ukraine (in particular, Odessa), where... More

Reminds me a bit of the TV show Cheers, due to the staircase down into the bar. Very friendly place, very cozy and well done. Low priced menu with outdoor seating also available, just off the main street in the center so it is less busy outside.

I liked the atmosphere in this basement bar. The menu and beer selection are impressive. I only dined on verenyky, but I was definitely satisfied. I found the service polite and attentive, not always a given in this town's drinking establishments. The free wifi is also a bonus. I say stop in for a beer when you are in the... More

A lovely little bar/restaurant located just off the main street in Odessa. The bar is underground and decorated in a quirky fashion-loved it. Unusually for Odessa, this bar has bags of character and charm. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the prices very reasonable. Would highly recommend.
