I decided to have my last dinner in Ukraine in this restaurant and I couldn't do better choice! The location is super cool, is like a greenhouse with elegant furnitures inside. Menu is available in english. Staff is kind and efficient. The waiter didn't speak...good english but when necessary he called a colleague who was able to. Food was very delicious, as the cocktail I tried. Food plating was super nice! As also the cocktail presentation. I think the price is very good for the quality of food, the service and the location. The place is very popular so there is always a bit of waiting line. In my case was like 30 min (maybe the solution is booking on advance but I don't know if they do it). They have also a shop where it is possible to buy their liqueurs (I tried the grape one and was also very good) and other products. Super-recommended!More

First time we visited Lviv and we wanted to go to a place with representative local culture. The first impression was nice , a traditional and interesting decoration. But when food came, disappointment , very poor presentation which accompanied the very poor taste. I am...a cooker myself and I would never give this kind of quality to my guests. Even the waiter changed three times and my order came 20 min after my girlfriends. I rarely write negative reviews but I would like to warm people after the bulk of positive reviews I see here.More

We heard tons of positive feedback about restauracia Baczewski, so were really keen to visit on our visit to Lviv. We visited spontaneously for a family dinner (group of 6 people), and the reception staff were super friendly and helped us find a table. We...were seated downstairs - the decorations and ambiance of the restaurant (even the toilets) are fabulous - you really seem to be taken to the times of the old Poland. I would call the cuisine more of a fusion of Ukrainian, Polish and Western European cuisine. Definitely very creative presentation of old recipies - a very refreshing perspective. I ordered Borshchok and Beef medallions with foi gras - both highly recommend! From the drinks menu, I also do recommend to try their selection of "nalyvky" or household liquers - they come in a range of flavours and in a very cool presentation with liquid ice and old-fashioned little bottles - my favourites were apricot-, rasberry- and quince-flavoured ones. And do not forget to try the local specialty - sea buckthorn tea. The table service was unfortunately somewhat disappointing. Four of us were not local, not familiar with the cuisine and only spoke German and Turkish. The lady that was serving us was polite, but seemed to be quite annoyed with the questions we were asking, and several times offered to give us some more time to read the menu instead. Something for the restaurant to think about - this could be perhaps solved by offering menu in some other languages or adding more detailed descriptions to the dishes, providing some additional training to the staff, or a combination of these.More

I’ve heard a lot about this restaurant so I thought it would be out of this world. It turned out to be good but I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. I ordered borsch and chicken roulette they were very tasty. Then I...ordered cheesecake for the dessert and it was very average. The waitress was very professional and friendly, big thanks to her.More

Amazing place !!i was waiting about 30 minutes but it was worth it! Food amazing and really impressive presentation! The service very good but very long. I gave 4 stars because for 5 stars I need a service of wine at the table and it...s not a case. But this is juste small detail. I ll definitely comme back here . One of my favorite restaurants in Lviv.More

I highly recommend Batchevsky restaurant as it has various choice of food and not much expensive. Kids can get an extra menu and at the back of this menu there is a little colouring book and the waiter gave us some crayons. My son did...it for half an hour. Credits for table service which was perfect.More

Ambiance was amazing, food was as good as it sounds. We came for an early dinner and luckily came earlier, as we were leaving a long line of people were waiting for a table. Service was a bit slow, but it was fine as we...were impressed by the atmosphere. We loved it so much we came for breakfast the following morning, also worth coming for. Lots of choices, from savory to sweet. Highly recommend for people visiting Lviv!More

The food was great but what made this a 5* experience was our waiter. Took the time to explain and recommend dishes and the extensive own made liqueurs. Great selection of dishes to choice from, cooked really well and nicely perfectly. The decor and atmosphere...wrapped up a lovely dining experienceMore

The food was great and arrived promptly, however we had a few questions for the waiter Yuriy, but he was impatient with us and cut me off a few times. The food we tried there was exceptional and everything about the place was great. It...would help if the attitude of the waiter could be adjusted.More
