Great way to get a taste of some Lithuanian cuisine. Portions are big, dishes are hearty fare, lots of potato dumplings, meats and taste.

LOVED this restaurant. The menu is HUGE. Downstairs you feel like you're in an actual cave. A great place to try very traditional Lithuanian food. Would highly recommend.

To be honest, I was impressed by the interior design and the atmosphere more than by food itself, as they were truly stunning. Nevertheless I really enjoyed my coffee with milk and some veggie stuff. My husband loved his zeppelins (Cepelinai in Lithuanian). The prices are reasonable and fair, especially for a restaurant serving traditional cuisine and having such a... More

I read numerous reviews on this place and was immediately interested in trying mushroom soup in a bread. Unfortunately it was nothing exceptional, but was still good though. The portions are pretty big and you will surely feel yourself full pretty fast. The atmosphere is nice, service too. Regular restourant where you get a nice choice of dishes for a... More

Very good but a bit crowdy place. It was our favorite place for dinner. I recommend it to all. Good Lithuanian beer, delicious food and very pleasant waitresses won't leave you indifferent.

Didn't like this place but I am not sure if it was the place that I didn't like or the local food with lots of fat used when cooked.

My hotel recommending I eat here if I was looking for traditional Lithuanian dishes done well. They were right! Food was inexpensive, fast and delicious. Loved it so much I ate there all three dinners in the city! The beet salad with kidney beans, pickles and hemp seeds was out of this world. I'm still dreaming about eating another plate... More

We had a very good lunch with friendly efficient service at the Pilies Street restaurant in Vilnius. You can choose to sit in the original cellars or upstairs towards the pedestrian zone. Wide choice of small snacks and full menus with traditional meals and drinks including herbal teas with excellent prices. Would definitely go again.

I visited here on the recommendation of my hotel staff, I wanted to try traditional Lithuanian food. I wasn't disappointed. I had to wait quite a while to be seated, about 15 minutes, however once seated the service was excellent. The waitress answered all my queries and was very helpful when I asked to try the 'most traditional Lithuanian starter... More

We ate out here and had an enjoyable meal. We tried the pigs ears beer snacks which we had heard about, but definitely not to everyone's taste! The main courses were tasty and there was a wide selection, including potato pancakes and traditional dumplings. We partially enjoyed pudding and tried the fruit pie with caramel and also a delicious creamy... More

FORTO DVARAS was the first restaurant in Lithuania to offer certified meals from the Gastronomic Heritage Foundation. These are meals made in the traditional way, using products of local origin. You can hear Lithuanian music playing in a cosy atmosphere of an old estate, decorated with elements of the old graphics and pictures from authentic books.
