You don't have to like salo

I was a little concerned when we ate here because I don't eat salo. Not to worry, the dishes are normal restaurant meals, and the salo is just an addition. I had sausage, potatoes, beet salad, etc. The food was fine, and very filling. We ate early in the evening, before any music or crowds. I... read more

My fiancé and I stopped in for lunch during the week. Like most restaurants they offer a business lunch and I recommend trying it because it is a great way to sample the local food for not a lot of money. The two of us had a three course meal with drinks for a little more that $4 US. And... More

If you want to try different kinds of dishes with salo, this is the place. They have sculptures made of salo, some very funny and strange. But eating the salo in different dishes is nice.

Service is terrible. 5 thugs who don't speak English with their drunk friends who party, shout and disturb all customers. No security to maintain a little order...

Good place too have late dinner and than stay for the party or movie. They have paintings by famous contemporary artists in interior and statues made of fat. Very interesting are salo-rolls: unique fusion of Ukrainian and Japanese cuisines. Take into account that mobile phone can loose connection here.

Id you're there with vegetarian friends they can order some sushi, if you're up for meat - go for it! If you wanna try something traditional and local - a variety of salo... More

Despite having a hard time finding this location, I'm glad we spent the extra time to track it down. We went for dinner late one night, around 2200, and decided to have the Breasts of Venus Salo. There was some things lost in translation, as to what we ordered, but eventually everything was figured out and we got our Breasts... More

It's a regular vacation-have-to-visit place. It's quiet a few reasons, despite a sound a weird range of dishes - it is tasty. I would recommend - sushi from "salo", welcome dish - set of tiny sandwiches with different salo varieties and shot. And choice cocktails - ranging from Cuba libre, mojito, tequila sunrise.
