Pizza and Italian cuisine. The tiled decor of this restaurant is refreshingly light and airy.

The main dishes are creative and tasty and the breakfast menu and buffet with free "American coffee" are also very good. The most unique trademark of Steakhouse is the wooden box, containing four kinds of sugar, chocolate, and cardamom seeds, that accompanies all coffee orders.

The new restaurant " Shalimar" was recently opened in the heart of Odessa to enjoy life with delight. Everybody who gets into this oasis of peace and prosperity is immediately charmed by the Asiatic highly concentrated luxury and comfort. It's always sunny in the "Shalimar". This place is designed for those who prefer to be lazy. It sounds rather natural: " I'm sitting in the "Shalimar" and doing nothing except enjoying life...." It's so easy here to forget about the commonness! When there are so many little beautiful things around you and instead of the ceiling there is a heavenly azure that you want to sprawl on the sofa among pillows and just to dream. These dreams are about the fantastical bends of sand-dunes in the desert, about the caravans and about the most beautiful fantastic oases... It is necessary to say that in this place there are all conditions for dreaming: lavish designed walls won't let your eyes be bored, mild lightning creates the feeling of warmth and there are special secluded corners for those who would like to seclude.

Ukrainian Lasunka

Ukranska Lasunka is richly decorated with traditional Ukrainian items. A large windmill decorates the middle of the restaurant. The food is good but not great, and the service leaves a lot to be desired. If you want good authentic Ukrainian food, we recommend Kumanets.

Zara Pizzara

A fierce competitor for the title of "Best Pizza in Odessa", Zara's is one of Odessa newest restaurants. The atmosphere is very modern and chic, and it boasts the only bathroom with a television in Odessa and probably in Ukraine. Breakfast is served daily beginning at 9AM with American style coffee or Italian espresso, toast & eggs plus other special dishes. The pizza and pasta cost around 20-30 hr.
