The diversity of dishes varies from region to region; however, the most colourful display of gastronomy can be found in Western Ukraine, Lviv in particular.

Baczewski Restaurant conquers the attention of travellers as soon as they enter, as it brings them back in time to Lviv at the beginning of the last century. Baczewski not only pleases the eye, but promotes local traditions and acquaints people with the history of the city and, of course, Galician cuisine. The place is named after the Baczewski family, who established the world’s first factory of mass produced vodka in 1782 in Lviv. Hence, a glass of homemade vodka has become a signature drink at the restaurant.

The name of this restaurant was established by locals for a good reason. The theme of the venue follows a mysterious Masonic society that occupies an apartment in an old building in the city’s main square. Masonic society or not, this place is considered to be the most expensive restaurant in Lviv, as the average bill reaches 1,000 UAH ($40 – £28.86). Yet, if you have a client loyalty card, the prices will be ten times lower.

The homely restaurant Galushko is a destination for true connoisseurs of authentic Ukrainian cuisine. It is the only place in the city that has preserved the traditions of cooking on the stove. Thus, the taste and consistency of traditional borscht is richer; the sugar topping on syrniki (cottage cheese pancakes) hardens into a glorious crust; and ham hocks are slowly smoked until they fall off the bone. At Galushko you’ll find fresh homemade bread, baked in accordance with an old recipe. The magic doesn’t stop there, for dessert, you can order Galician and European favourites.
