Nice restaurant with a good price and good food quality. The massonery theme pervades the entire restaurant creating a nice feeling. Don't forget the Lviv card or you won't have the 90% discount, and you will probably gate the place for your entire life!

Worth the trip just for the entertainment value, plus the food is very good, the service was attentive, and the prices reasonable. The salmon salad was excellent. The mushroom soup (recommended by staff) was also very good. If you're in Lviv for a few days you should make it a point to go to dinner here.

Attraction is really interesting but service and food are bad. Duck just lacked taste, salads were made of unfresh ingredients. Big touristic groups going with excurtion almost go through your plates

My girlfriend took me to this restaurant and loved the experience. You first enter through what seems a small apartment, usually the servers joke as the entrance is very missleading. We went at lunch time and was fairly calm day. The goose is wonderful and the servers are very helpful. Timing was perfect and by the end of the meal,... More

The restaurant is beautifully decorated with views onto the main square in Lviv. The entrance is an anonymous apartment door that opens into what appears to be a Soviet-style flat where I was greeted by an elderly man who directed me through the curtain to the restaurant. The masonic theme is certainly unique and the food was great if not... More

First, this is an amazingly beautiful restaurant in the old Lviv. Second, the food is great. Third, no complaint about the service. Fourth, it is not expensive at all. Remarkable is the Masonic background. Without studying the history of the building, one would guess this used to be a lodge during the Austro-Hungarian times. The restaurant - the walls, the... More

If you find this place, it's most likely because your guide book or a friend directed you here. It boasts no signage of any kind and is virtually hidden, which is part of its shtick, like neighboring Krijivka downstairs. Hopefully no one has let you in on the gag that awaits you upon entering, and I won't either, but it's... More

Such a unique experience, never been to a restaurant quite like this. From start to finish, this was a bizarre restaurant. We were sat in a dark corner with only candle light. Great service with a playful attitude. The food left a lot to be desired. They were out of a few items on the Saturday night we went. I... More

The name of this restaurant can scare visitors and tourists who have limited budget, but no worries - the prices are quite safe)) The design of this restaurant can catch an eye of any fastidious customer while the dishes will definitely raise your mood! Nice waiters, huge pictures and a throne-toilet - you should not miss them all!!
