Masonic Restaurant information
Ascend to the 2nd floor and open the door of apartment 8. You'll be accosted by an unshaven bachelor type, who eventually opens the door to reveal a fancy beamed restaurant full of Masonic symbols and portraits. Advertised as Galicia's most expensive restaurant, prices are 10 times higher than normal…so make sure you pick up a 90% discount card at Dim Lehend or Livy Bereh beforehand.
The food, by the way, is great and the beer and kvas (gingery, beer-like soft drink) come in crystal vases. The toilet is a candlelit Masonic throne. Ukraine's weirdest restaurant experience? Probably.
