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.

At lunchtime we had linen tablecloths and napkins and a lit candle and a rose in a vase. The service was excellent. There were bricked walls and ceilings to look like a cellar. Many separate dining rooms. Some mecieval decor like armor and swords and muskets. Iron chandeliers. The food was attractively presented. I had a vegetable puree soup and... More
