Authentic place worth visiting at least once, not sure you need it more than that. Food and drinks are average but if you come here, you come for an experience

Pathetic. Rude staff that clearly were more interested in playing with fake whips than looking after customers - we were left queueing outside for 40 minutes - probably still waiting had we Not given up

The restaurant is suffocating with a currently vacant lower floor and poor service. I came there with friends for a birthday celebration cocktails but soon we left, because of long time of expectation and demotivational speech of waitress considering cocktail specialties options. I had a...50% birthday discount from Lokal network for conceptual cocktails - block "Shameless offer" (cocktails for 190-280 UAH). However, I was unable to use this option because the waitress insisted that I have to strip naked to get a cocktail. Next, when I was wondering what else to order, the waitress suddenly began to tile people at the next table, without listing alternatives and taking the order. Since my friends and I were already waiting for 20 minutes for the menu, we decided that the whole process of ordering and consumption would be painful both psychologically and physically. The only positive experience was an opportunity to admire the interior. The halls are decorated with hanging bras, red velour, and some interesting pictures. Also, the bill is presented here in an extravagant manner - in women's shoes. Waitresses have interesting provocative uniform and leather lashes to punish customers. The most unexpected was the menu division named by the stages of intimate relationships flutter: For excitement (snacks), Wet pleasure (first courses), Hot prelude (main courses) and Sweet climax (desserts).More

The Masoch Cafe is a must do experience when in Lviv. You don`t have to take your shirt off but some do volunteer! However you will still get a whiplash for fun! The drinks are good & everyone appears to enjoy this wonderful tribute to...the father of masochism!More

Honestly, I was a bit terrified of this place, having seen some of the videos, but when you're in Lviv, you've got to go for it. Our waitress was really great at gauging our boundaries, and only administered as much of a flogging as we...were willing to accept; the decor is eye-popping; and the food and drinks are pretty decent too. Loved the creativity of the menu!More

As the name suggests the place is of masochism theme. U get whipped at the entrance and occasional whips by the waiters. Its part of the fun so don’t go in if ur not comfortable about such stuff. U pay extra and experience the masohism...on urself while being tied and mouth filled with vodka or beer. Its all fun even if u dont want to participate u can sit and watch. One of a kind so would recommendMore
