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.

I love this place for a number of reasons: 1.) Often they have great live music in the evenings with free entrance 2.) Amazing choice of foods! 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.

The place seems very strange and odd place as for typical Lviv places. With all that traditional salo (fat ;) art - it does not give you appetite for food as for me. Though the menu is formed under very creative concept.

I only visited here for some drinks with friends, nice place, comfortable sofas, you can easily chill out here. The only minus is after a few vodkas it's a bit of a challenge to see the menu (the menu is the contraption on the end of the table with a large magnifying glass) the entrance area has selection of sculptures...

One not to miss!! Located in the city centre, this museum is a work of art - and the first one i ever came across which idolises fat! fat sculptures abound, and after the brief tour you can relax in the chic restaurant for a good beer and to sample the fat appetizers and main dishes prepared with flair. Cool.
