Nice ambience, friendly service. The plate of grilled vegetables was perfect. The steaks (Prime Rib, New York) were nicely spiced, but they were tough!

The best meat I've ever tried. Great dark bear. Amazing interier of wood and location is in the center. It's very warm and cozy there. This place is definitely "must visit" place in Lviv.

Ancient restaurant in the city center. Ribeye steak was probably the best I've ever tried in Ukraine (and I did a lot). Remarkable dark beer.

Not easy to find but thanks to the map applications you can track it down. The staff is friendly and kind from the first moment. It is a very comfortable place even when it is packed, because of the spacious area inside. Suitable for people with or without children. It also has tables outside which would definitely be a nice... More

Everyone who likes a juicy morsel I recommend to visite this restaurant in the old Armenian Quarter of Lviv. The house is embedded in the medieval distrikt and has inside the atmosphere like a medieval friary with candellight, old wine and stout beer. Das Mons Pius liegt im armenischen Viertel der Lemberger Altstatt direkt neben der aemenischen Kirche und bietet... More

On our 7 night stay, we ate here 3 nights, soooo good! It's higher end for L'viv, but I would describe it as a higher end local restaurant, not like a high end American Hotel chain restaurant. Still very inexpensive to western $ standards. Well worth the few extra bucks per plate, the food was fantastic. We had steak, salmon... More

Dinner for two, no need to book, very few people in the restaurant. Food is OK, not great, half the steak options not available. Waitresses are quite surly although english not their first language so may have an impact. Is cheap (relative) but you don't get a lot for your money...remember it being better than this. Lacks atmosphere being so... More

We've ended up at Mons Pius twice for dinner during our 5 day visit to Lviv. Mild weather allowed us to sit outside in the yard. The first time the restaurant was very busy and we had to wait about 45 min for food. Our reward were pork tenderloins on a symbolic bone (hence the name of 'tomahawk') , marinaded... More

Restaurant is very special! But it's not easy to find it especially for tourists. It's definitely minus. From the first glance and till the end of my dinner restaurant looked like not alive... empty terrace and unconfident hostess (maybe she wasnt hostess even) She didn't greet us i asked her if they are working. Interior is made all in dark... More

One of our favourite places in Lviv. We like everything - the location, internal courtyard, interior, character of the place, the food, the atmosphere - the lot. We especially liked the steaks which melt in the mouth. It can be very busy so advance booking is needed and dont go there in a hurry. It needs to be enjoyed slowly

Thank Ira I
