That place was really different to us because the restaurant looks like maze. The food was okay. Best thing was the ambience!

Interesting atmosphere, autentic food, which is really tasty. Real music and nice waiter. You can also go outside and go upstairs on the roof.

Kryivka is an old favorite to stop for a drink late at night when I am in town and want to meet an old friend for a drink. The menu is always fun to read and it offers some people watching entertainment. Lviv Center is full of establishments with interesting themes but Kryivka is one of the originals.

The most popular cafe in Lviv. It has specific patriotic atmosphere. Chip price and delicious food. Also you should try their tinctures. They are perfect.No russian language or you will be put to the "cafe prison". So if you want to come to this place you should know a password ;-)

I like all the food, the design and the stuff. They are very charismatic people:) I've heard about this place from many of my Ukrainian and Russian friends. Must see. Make sure you also attend a one more restaurant on the next floor. Mason's one:)

Unique dining experience in an authentic underground bunker with the "Ukrainian Insurgent Army." Excellent food and a fun glimpse into Ukrainian history - if your know the password to enter: "Slava Ukraine!"

Everything was interesting. The place, interior, one hour, waiting in the queue to get into that place. But the food itself was very very average. I will not go there again.

We have read about this place here, so we have decided to come. Waited in a line outside the restaurant around 45 minutes but it's definitely worth. The food was absolutely wonderful, the atmosphere too. They have partisan performances, when they're walking around with fake guns and looking for insurgents around the restaurant. I will come back here for sure!

Thank Tomas S
