Description: A restaurant in your imagination only. It is a building of a chimney sweeper and his family where Lviv legends live. The chimney sweeper and his family members collect books about Lviv in their library, protect Lviv lions, watch the water level of the Poltva river and tally if someone has not stolen some old Austrian cobblestone.It is the place where Lviv time is officially protected: the clock hand must not run slow and the clock must keep perfect Lviv time. There is a necessity to clean some chimneys from time to time, so the chimney sweeper takes his car, parked on the rooftop, and passes easily Lviv traffic jams. At night, when the family falls asleep, Lviv smog protects Lviv legends from St. George Hill.

Visited Lviv a number of times over the years, and in my honest opinion its the best hidden secret in Europe (its a real Cinderella city, discovering Prague and Budapest have a hidden away little sister!) with a fantastic craft beer and bar/cafe scene, with bars like the Dim Legend a prime example.

Located in the Jewish District not far from the Arsenal, its a great bar that is made up of 4 or 5 stories of a building, and to really appreciate it, you are best heading to the top floor for a fantastic roof top view of Lviv.

Not the biggest in terms of space, as it can be a fight to get a table, but when you can its really worth staying that little bit longer here to just enjoy a good Ukrainian craft beer.

Will certainly be back again next time in Lviv.

Dim Legend has its own specific atmosphere. The food is tasty and it is related to the traditional Ukrainian cuisine. It is not expensive at all. You must visit the upper floor with a car, dwarf and breathtaking view of panorama of Lviv. It may be very crowded (always a lot of tourists) so try to visit it in less occupied hours.

The food did not like at all. Why is your borsch without meat, potatoes and kalloly? We were waiting a check for a long time, we were alone in the whole room and we had to look for our own staff. Two pluses. View from the roof, and moderate prices.

This place offers the major entertainment- you have go on the roof and try to throw a coin within the hat of the sitting sweep. Or you can sit one flore below under big umbrella meanwhile coins’ rain is falling on you.

A wonderful place to watch the roofs of Lviv , to taste great coffee and to enjoy the atmosphere of the city. Where else one can see a car which can swim.
