Escaped from the sleet and the rain to hunker down by the open fire. Friendly service and faux rustic decor, overall a relaxed atmosphere and perfect for a low key meal to build your strength! There was a big menu to choose from, we'd especially recommend the beer snacks - the fried bread with cheese went down a treat and... More

Typical evening, when you do not want to eat the "rubber chicken" in your hotel again. Walking behind the hotel /chortcut to the downtown/ I have found a hidden woodhouse discreetly among the trees. Not much light, the place you need to know to go to. Traditional local enterieur, cosy fireplace /photo/ friendly helpful staff.They want to help and serve... More

I lived in Kaunas for six months, i experienced different typical restaurants and in the end this is the best one. It offers different Lithuanian specialties, from the traditional stew to the Cepelinai, potatoes filled with sausages served with lard and sour cream. The soup of the day is availiable only for lunch and it costs around 90 cents, the... More

Late arrival into Kaunas, staying at the Radisson so perfect to come here for dinner,as it is less than a 2 min walk from the hotel! Greeted by a lovely big fire place, in which my chicken fillet was grilled a few minutes later. Traditional lithuanian restaurant with an extensive menu of chicken, beef, veal, pork and fish. We opted... More

This restaurant was just behind our hotel and seemed to serve Lithuanian dishes which we were keen to try out. It was not too busy but the staff were attentive and laughed encouragingly at our attempts at Lithuanian! They were quite proficient in English so it was not a problem! They gave us plenty of time to choose, offered help... More

I was here on a business trip. Very quiet at a Thursday afternoon. Happy to see English language explanations of Lithuanian dishes (although I'm sure the very friendly staff would have helped us out otherwise). Be prepared for very hearty food!

We found this place via DK guide. It's really tucked away, very old, very rustic. The food was excellent, the staff lovely, the price ridiculously cheap - 3 dishes, 1/2 litre house red, fresh orange juice total under 15 Euro. Also great Lithuanian music, folky rock. A really great little find.
