Although there might be a line at the entrance and you might have to wait to order, the place is really worth visiting. Borsch are delicious, the portions are enormous and cheap. 3xbeers, cherry drink, 2xdumplings, big meat platter, pork ribs and turkey breast were more than enough for 4 people for less than 20euros.

It's one of those places with a real theme:
Ukrainian nationalist, anti-Russian, guns, war artifacts, anti-Russian and Ukrainian hero posters everywhere - where to enter one has to say the password: Glory to Ukraine in Ukrainian "Slava Ukraini" (it was quite difficult for my Polish wife & Poles in general, hehe)
Good beers, welcome shot, nice selection of other drinks - and the half meter long sausage was the perfect thing to have after some drinks around midnight and it went great with the beers...

Prices are very low just like almost everywhere else in the center of Lviv (and Ukraine in general)...

Everything about this place is great except for the food. They won't let you in without saying the password, "Slava Ukraini." A dude with a rifle pours you a shot on the way in. When you go downstairs they fire a starter pistol to scare you. The menu includes pictures disparaging Putin. There's plenty of patriotic Ukrainian old timey stuff, which is very cool. The finished sucks though. Another group sitting next to us was also very disappointed. The service is poor, too: they took so long with the second round of beers that we were done eating.

You can't go to Lviv and not come here. This "secret" place has no signs as to keep it in the "down-low". A knock on the door will do the trick and you're asked for a password. "Slava Ukrayini!" (Glory Ukraine!) is what gets you in. Upon entrance, you're given a drink and taken downstairs.
I'll stop here as you gotta go see what is down there. It's a great place, very entertaining. They also got great food at good prices.
Ah, there might be some music... if you're lucky and there is, enjoy!
Try not to speak Russian..... They do understand English well.

Amazing food. Great theme. Do not speak Russian here, it is not a good idea for you will be "arrested". The waiter understood English and was very helpful with recommendations. Slava Ukraini!
