Choose to sit outside on the old town cobbled streets or inside in the converted cellars for a gothic atmosphere. Served by smartly dressed and attentative staff and fed by a vast menu including some classic Lithuanian dishes. The food is more expensive than many resturants in Kaunas but both my colleague and I were impressed with the quality. My... More

We had booked a table for Thursday evening, but that wouldn't have been necessary. Not the friendliest of waiters, but quite correct. Lovely caesar salad (despite the boiled egg 😳) and really nice fish soup. Salmon main course was ok and the veal was apparently amazing. Then we shared a dessert: hot cherries and vanilla ice cream. To drink we... More

We were there last evening for a romantic dinner. The place looks really good, the atmosphere was very relaxing. The service was very good, the antre and the main course( duck) were very good,, the desert (creme brulle) was ok . I recomend this restaurant to everyone.

I absolutely loved my venison with spinach and blue cheese. Others round the table loved their wild boar and pork. Quality meal with great ambience and staff. English menu and central location. Chardonnay was very exceptional too. Highly recommended!

Good choice of fish and meat main courses, variety of first courses and the usual snacks. Efficient service, and quite smart with prices only marginally higher than average. An enjoyable meal but not outstanding.

Tasty food and reasonable prices! We sat outside as the weather was nice and had various plates to try, such as the zucchini pancakes, the herring, the pistachio filled chicken and then pork tenderloin. Left happy and full!

This is not only a beautiful and intriguing place to eat, the service is very good as well as the food! The cellar rooms are decorated with a medieval theme with lovely murals and swords. The vegetable soup and the duck were excellent as was the house red wine. Definitely would recommend this restaurant when in Kaunas.
