One of the better restaurants in Lviv, with better than average food. When you go in, stay to the right and do not get into the long line that is going into another, far cheaper place. Go up the stairs and enter a small room with a man who passes you on to the real restaurant. However, make sure he... More

Our dinner at this restaurant was memorable, from the entrance to the bill! On the table next to us, some people weren't aware of all the "tricks" this place offered, and were trapped by one of the members of their group and had a lot of fun when they found out the reality! Food was tasty, especially the risotto with... More

this restaurant is part of a larger chain of theme restaurants. the constant themes are getting a bit tiresome, but this restaurant has great view onto the main square and decent food. you enter through what looks like an old apartment, including a gentleman sitting in it :) funny.

Like many guests before me, I will not spoil the 'surprise upon entrance', but it is quite good. Once you are inside, the intriguingly Freemason style will surely surprise you. For couples the romantic window sill seating with a gorgeous view on Market Square (Ploshcha Rynok) is recommended. My partner and I shared a huge T-bone steak, which was perfect.... More

We were here not expecting much. But Lviv has this awkward charm about every little thing in Rinok Square. This is fun for the eyes and for the stomach. Highly recommend and do not be afraid of the doorman!

90% discount, you think it's crazy, not it isn't. Craziness is paying whole bill. Bit waiter told that every day someone who buy food for whole price. Delicious and gorgeous.

First let me tell you that if you are planning to take your spouse or a date to this restaurant, keep it to yourself. The entrance to the restaurant goes through what looks to be a tiny apartment - complete with an old man in a bathrobe. My wife thought this was an old friend of mine.) You are then... More

First of all it is one of the must visit restaurant in Lviv, because it is unique. Usually in such a places food is not the best but we were surprised by quality of our dinner. Steak Ribe-eye was very tasty, good beer, special atmosphere. I would reccomend this place for couples and for friends as well.

They may have changed there format. Waiting at the door and person kept peeking out into waiting area. He would say a word and the party would say a response, challenge and password. You then enter a small room, a person dressed in old military uniform makes you take a shot of brandy then opens a hidden door and then... More
