Absolutely great bistro with the most favorite Ukrainian dishes. Suitable not only for meat-eaters, but even for vegetarian, as they have cheburek with cheese and varenyky with potatoes or cabbage. Crafted beer is great, too!

They make their own beer, and I must say it is excellent (although a bit expensive for El Nido). The food offer is not extense, but quite good to help drinking more beer...
