We enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. Onions soup and snails were good, frog legs - excellent. A table was too small.

This French restaurant is just a little ways off the main drag of Didzioji Gata, far enough from the crowds but easy to walk to. It is a cozy place with a good selection of food, beer, and wine.

Very comfortable brasserie restaurant. We both enjoyed the lamb knuckle, very tender and tasty meat. A little misunderstanding about wine by the glass took off a little of the shine.

Nice place in small old town's street. Very good service, drinks and food but skip burger as it's terrible.
