The most “European” of the Ukrainian cities, Lvov is famous for its hasteless pace of life, its unique culture, its ancient yet ageless traditions.
Lviv restaurants testify the city’s taste for good quality and interesting leisure. Small and cozy coffee parlors resembling family sittin-rooms, genuine “Kneipen” serving live beer and rich snacks, luxury restaurants with their festive atmosphere, street cafes especially good for observing the flow of life… This variety of styles, shapes and traditions is a craddle of some truly outstanding locations which excite and delight tourists and local connoisseurs of leisurely lifestyle.
The dwellers of the guerrilla hideout “Kryivka” («Криївка») are glory keepers of the Galicia history. You can never get in if you don’t give the secret partisan watchword to the armed guardians at the entrance. And once you are there you will be treated with mead and horseraddish vodka along with traditional dishes with bold and ironiс names inspired by the historical events. Unusual interior of the location and the atmosphere of ardor will add to the impression of taking part in a successful guerrilla plot.
The same building houses a misterious venue the name of which is known to the select only. For the majority it is “Mason Lodge” or simply “The Most Expensive Galicia’s restaurant” («Найдорожча ресторація галичини»). The prices are indeed striking here – all hundreds and thousands – but only for those who haven’t managed to get a club card or a discount coupon which isn’t so hard as it may seem. The entire place is filled with mystery and luxury: cut glass vases instead of beer mugs, a royal throne in the restroom, white gloves for visitors, candles and pictures… A whole load of curious details for those looking for unusual eating-out experiences.
Another place having something to astonish the conventional restaurant visitors is the owner of a peculiar name – the “Masoch Cafe” («Мазох-кафе»). As the name suggests, the main idea of the location is the cult of the notorious trend and its founder. The names of dishes trigger your imagination, and you are more than welcome to test some of the most popular s/m-attributes (cuffs, whips and chains are parts of the intriguing interior). Tourists come here for fresh impressions, and the frequenters appreciate the quality of service and the relaxing atmosphere.
The creators of the next location decided to maintain the tradition of small Lviv museums and dedicated the opening of the “Gas Lamp” cafe («Гасова лямпа») to the 155th anniversary of the kerosine lamp invention. Here you will be met by a waiter with a lamp and through a dark passage and curved stairs you will get to the three-storey restaurant with peculiar furnishing, old lamps on the walls and fancy crockery. All this gives the location its charm, and the iron-cast gas lamp inventors at the entrance seem to have already become one of the major tourist attractions of the city.
