I heard it was a good restaurant from my brother who was there in 2016 but now it was very bad. We didnt have QR scanner so we couldnt check menu and waitress recommended us most probably the most expensive meal which was total crap...and mushroom soup which was cold, smelled bad and portion was small. I assume that now they just reap the benefits of how good they were few years ago.More

It seemed to me to enter in a History museum more than in a bar-restaurant. Very great design and atmosphere, startibg from the password game at the door till the old fusils and army uniforms which let the guest to have some unique photos. The...plates were also tasty, maybe not the best I tried in Ukraine but the whole experience definitely worth it.More

We tried Borsch soup and liked it. I am vegan so I asked that can they prepared without meat and meat stock. They prepared and it was so delicious. Decoration and ambiance are so cool. You should definitely try Bull Margaritas. The presentation was so...impressive.More

This place is super famous among Lviv visitors. The atmosphere is unique and definitely worth checking out at least once. Prices are very cheap but the food quality is about average.

Love the atmosphere, but the food-I think there are much better places that cook Ukranian food :) Me and my friend, we tried the borsch, the fried chicken and the sausage. I think the sausage was fine, borsch ok, but chicken; not the best one...:)More

At this point Kryivka is riding on a hype created online. Food quality is abismal. And kids (all of them are about 18) that serve your food are more eager to play with each other instead of doing their job which is taking care of...their patrons. All of parafernalia is randomly collected and is out of place. All in all it's for people that have no clue about history and company that owns the place is using tragedy of the region and of current Russian-Ukrainian war for personal gain. Better go to Veterano pizza, those guys at least help veterans and war participants.More

It is great for atmosphere and for drinks but the food is mostly hit and miss. I've been here multiple times because it is fun but the food quality is kind of dropping. The latest meal for example, "Pork Chop", was pretty bad. This is...a must-go place but the food is not that good at all times.More

Like other restaurants of the company! Fest, this one is also designed to entertain you, not to feed you deliciously. It claims the romance of the Ukrainian insurgent movement of the Second World War, not delicious cuisine. Want a tasty meal - look for another...restaurant.More

This place is supposed to be a "secret" place somewhere at Rynok square. Upon arrival you are greeted by a restaurant host that is supposed to be an armed guard and he will ask you for the password (glory to Ukraine in Ukrainian). Then he'll...give each of you shots and after you drink it you'll be allowed to enter the bunk (restaurant). We went there just out of curiosity and to experience this funny restaurant theme but surprisingly the food turned out to be quite good tasty.More

I’m not sure that would really embrace the spirit of the place. Beer is cheap so why not buy some? You’ll have a good evening if you visit. Worth the effort.
