We have selected TOP-10 Odessa cafes and restaurants for you, which can surprise their visitor not only with delicious cuisine and interesting interior but also with the opportunity to retire and spend an evening in a romantic setting.

Gallo cafe

Cozy Gallo cafe hid in the shadow of trees at the intersection of Troitskaya and Pushkinskaya streets. In addition to the excellent menu and a pleasant interior, you can try a chance to retire on a beautiful balcony, which is part of the institution and allows you to look at passers-by for a while, but “from high” in the literal sense of the word.

Whiskey Bar “Bootlegger”

Similar sensations arise in the cafe Bootlegger, which is hiding on the Military slope. Not only do tourists know this place, but local people are far from everyone, and this gives clear advantages to those who want to retire from the bustle of the city in a separate room with a cozy interior and the best choice of whiskey in the city.


Bernardazzi restaurant will surprise you with the best wine list. It is located in the courtyard of the Odesa Philharmonic and in combination in the building of the monument of architecture of the 19th century.
