Darwin is the place which is as worth to find as hard. This restaurat is situated at fifth floor of bookstore Litera on Shevska street, nearby Leopolis Hotel. You may go there upstairs through the shop or by Elevator which goes only to restaurant. It is true restaurant of haute cuisine, with delicious food and artistic dressing. Very clean place,... More

I've been to this haute cuisine restaurant with my beloved. The atmosphere was amazing, since it was raining outside and we were sitting just under the rooftop, watching raindrops falling on the glass roof, enjoying a glass of superb wine and very tasty and filling beef tongue salas served in bread. The Caesar salad was not so good, or, I'd... More

Darwin is a hidden jem, located on the 5th floor of what looks like (and actually I think is) a bookstore. The restaurant does feel like a comfortable library room, with waiters acutally looking like butlers. The food is mostly European with unexpected interruptions of Tom-Kha which apparently was quite good. Overall good service, felt a bit too slow, but... More

"Everything is evolving" says restaurant's biz card. Surprisingly, it's really thing. Last time we found some food close to fast, but not to delicious. And the service, it seems, became poor. For it's price policy I can proove about too high price/quality ratio. It was my, perhaps, 5th or 6th visit to this place and I can compare, but I'm... More

As for Ukraine it is really impressive. Menu is done with good taste, food is fresh, the interiour and atmosphere are very inviting. Though they need a French chef...

Kind of a disappointment. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, you take the elevator all the way up to the top floor and you are met by a friendly staff who don't speak English but they do have an English menu. Service is pleasant and friendly, the restaurant is sort of posh but the food is just ok.... More

It could be a bit slow during weekends or 'prime time', but its really one of the best choice in the center of Lviv.
