Kumpel is famous in Lviv and all around for 3 things: 1)its own brewery and special taste of beer; 2)its home-made sausages with 3 different types of fillings that are served 1 meter long; 3)its founder - Mark Zarhin - Lviv famous restaurator-conceptualist. The food is tasty, however you should have patience to wait for it as usually the restaurant... More

Noisy, crowded, casual indifferent service, and greasy heavy food. You could call it authentic but to of the kind you want to visit and fondly remember.

When we came in the restaurant administrator/host was playing with his phone and apparently we interrupted him, as he was grumpy. We told him, that there are two of us in English and he gave us menu in Ukrainian. Ukrainian is a nice language and I understand some words, but it was too difficult to choose. Our waiter came in...

Great night, buzzing busy place with authentic atmosphere. Food was interesting, genuinely recommend mushroom soromakha- fantastic broth with theee type and of mushrooms, very aromatic. Beer (which I really don't drink!) was lovely, I've tried tasting menu of three types, intense taste, absolutely worth trying. Requires hooking, well worth it.

Nice ambience and really good craft beer. The food was also excellent. Highly recommend this!! Could be five star but compared to some of the best eating here it is only excellent.

Place with Galician food and Galician spirit. Food was fat and heavy, but I don't discourage anyone to try. They have good craft beer.

This place was recommended by a local for beer and it didn't disappoint. It has a great selection of local beer. I tried the sampler which is a collection of 5-6 small glasses of beer and it was a perfect way of sampling a number of local beers. As for main course, I tried some local cuisine but it wasn't...

Had read about this place in my book for brewing its own beer and so had to go. If it had not been for the main course then I would have ranked it as 4 out of 5. Service was friendly and helpful. The drinks were good and you can try all six of their own beers in a little... More

Please, be aware that there are two restaurants in the city. One at Volodymyra Vynnychenka street is much better in terms of interior/atmosphere and beer, food is same in both places. If' you're going here on Fri, Sat or Sun evening make sure you book the table in the morning.

Ate at Kumpel on two occasions at the recommendation of locals. The Craft Lager Beer was average, better beer just about anywhere else in Lviv. I ordered Fried Pig Ears, Beet Salad, and a cold sausage plate. Service was quick but definitely no friendly. Also taste tested all their Craft beers and was not impressed. Actually, another patron left the... More
