Didn't have any negative experience. I can't say that the food was extraordinary though. The atmosphere, the presentation of food was great. The prices are fair.

Restaurant is located in very pleasant passage in the centre of town. Nice terrace, inside rustic and a bit dark. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive staff. We had good service. My son had rabbit broth which he enjoyed and tasted good. My wife had a steak...with pepper sauce. Meat was tender and tasty. Cooked well. Pepper sauce was a bit disappointing. Enjoyed. I had calves liver which I asked to be medium cooked but was over cooked and dry. My wife told me that this is the way it is cooked in Ukraine so I guess a mistake on my part! The calves liver that we cook at home in Kyiv is always juicy and a bit red which is the way it should be. Vegetables were good. Wine list good. Overall, I have difficulty in understanding the rating attributed. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves and our waitress was very pleasant.More

Tourist trap. Visually food is misleading, taste is lacking. 798722952 Not sure how this place has good reviews. The food was underwhelming and below the standards I experienced in other local restaurants. I think this was our waiter's first day on the job, not his...fault, but he clearly was not trained before being released to serve customers. Liver and fish dishes were overdone. Presentation of the food was nice on the plate, unfortunately the taste was not as good as the visual appeal. I would certainly not recommend this placeMore

During my stay in Lviv I tried this restaurant which is located two minutes from the Taras Shevchenko statue. I must say that the atmosphere in there is truly incredible, also thanks to the service of the dining room staff who were really kind, nice...and followed me carefully and advised me in a precise and effective way. The place is really beautiful thanks to the use of wood that is very reminiscent of the old days, clean and organized. Really fast waiting times, even with a lot of people at the tables. I can say that I am really satisfied to have dined every night in this restaurant, the dishes are taken care of down to the smallest detail, and the quality-price is super excellent. I was able to try about 90% of the whole menu and all the dishes are better than each other, even as regards the drink. I highly recommend trying the local wine (Kolonist Odessa Black) I was amazed. I will definitely return in the winter. If I could I would give it 10 stars. Super Recommended.More

Just an average place I'd say. I would say tacos were clother to bad than to good. However maybe should try other dishes.

I simply don't understand the hype on TA - Kryva Lypa is absolutely nothing special! The restaurant IS very cozy, and the decor is very interesting. Prices are on the high side for Lviv, so you could expect more than a not tender steak, tasting...a bit bland - certainly not quality meat. Besides the steak, the plate was almost empty, so we were certainly not full, after finishing the meal. Service is very shallow and by routine, and the high ranking on TA means that most customers are tourists - the locals know better!More
