“An attempt to create haute cusine restaurant”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

As for Ukraine it is really impressive. Menu is done with good taste, food is fresh, the interiour and atmosphere are very inviting. Though they need a French chef...

“Just Ok, upscale”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Kind of a disappointment. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, you take the elevator all the way up to the top floor and you are met by a friendly staff who don't speak English but they do have an English menu. Service is pleasant and friendly, the restaurant is sort of posh but the food is just ok. Nothing exceptional. A guy played the piano which was also ok, but I wouldn't really recommend this place to be honest although it's not like they did anything "wrong", it's just that it wasn't out of the ordinary.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It could be a bit slow during weekends or 'prime time', but its really one of the best choice in the center of Lviv.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Worth a visit if you do not like local beer. But is that possible in city with oldest and tratition-richest brewery in Ukraine? Rather not, but if you prefer some stout or ale or other speciality, it could be right place. Good menu, but not all dishes listed are available. In general, slightly overpriced as for Lviv

“Breakfast: great menu, slow service”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Breakfast menu is very nice, good value. Nevertheless the service is too slow! You should wait for your coffee while the waitress will finish her personnel chat!
