“Good restaurant”
Review of Rojalis

Rojalis
Ranked #47 of 320 Restaurants in Kaunas
Price range: US$5 - US$29
Description: Food, music, art and history. Synthesis, rousing all human senses, connecting the most important cultural aspects. The dish plate – a picture painted by the chef. Music, played by touching piano keys or echo from Kaunas carillon bells floating in the air. Culinary quests turn into a telling of a tale. Perhaps inspired by the history, perhaps will become history. M. K. Ciurlionis Art and Vytautas Magnus War museums accepted "Rojalis" restaurant into their honorable company. Not only accepted – injected the sensation of delicate taste, swaying of the music sounds and sprinkled culinary experiences with both Lithuanian and world‘s history crumbles. The restaurant emerged in January of 2017 and it could be proudly said that all of the expectations for “Rojalis” were fully developed, as the main idea was to bring the garden of Vytautas Magnus War museum back to life. Past owners and new “Rojalis” owner discussed future plans on how the new restaurant could be reborn in such a historic location of Kaunas. Back in the early 30’s the same venue was used as one of the most popular ice-cream and milkshake bar in all of the city. Because of its location it was easily accessible for students, professors, various other workers and town guests. The new owner wanted and has successfully combined the old traditions and modern atmosphere of “Rojalis” with live performances, cosy patio and extraordinary European cuisine. The creation of these new traditions allowed the restaurant to become one of the few places in Kaunas were visitors can enjoy gourmet meals while listening to instrumental music, performed on a stage near the patio. M. K. Ciurlionis Art museum and Vytautas Magnus War museum are one of the oldest museums in Lithuania. There is no surprise that the history of Lithuanian evolution and art are significant until this day both to Lithuanians and visitors of Lithuania. "Rojalis" is located just alongside the Vytautas Magnus War museum, gives the opportunity not only to pamper your taste buds or listen to live music played by the restaurant‘s piano. It‘s also pleasant to observe the rhythm of the tireless city or catch the sun rays on the outside terrace. The terrace overlooks the beautiful yard of the museum. Not too far ahead you can see the Unity Square with its distinguished monuments. "Rojalis" makes exquisite quality food with a superb vicinity of Kaunas. "Rojalis" combines music, art and history into a mouth – watering and cosy culinary trip – if you want to travel, just go beyond the threshold of the restaurant.

Cozy environment, food presentation and taste surprises! Live music gives you a sense of coziness. Waiters work very professionally. A cool place for business lunch and more. I'll be back again!

Let’s start with the good. Central location, beautiful decour, innovative cuisine. Area in need of major improvement: service.

Recently dined here with friends. Besides our table, there was another small group of 3 guests. We shared one server. Yet, the drinks (wine) we ordered took forever to be delivered, we got water only after asking twice for it (after having ordered it in the first place). Ordered appetizers and those eventually did show up on the table, only to be immediately followed by the food we ordered.

Entrées were delivered about 20 minutes apart, which meant two people were eating while the other two were looking. Kind of awkward, if you ask me. There were other major faux pas in service but enough about that already.

It really was unfortunate that such a lovely evening was interrupted by a rather amateurish service, though the gentleman did wear white gloves.

Perhaps we get better service next time.

Overall, a lovely place with an interesting approach to service.

I’m in love with their business lunches and I am there every time I find myself in Kaunas.

Beautiful location, great service, and mouth-watering food make it a true must-visit place.

The atmosphere in "Rojalis" is amazing! It's an extra-ordinary feeling to eat such delicious food while musician is playing the piano. Staff is friendly and helpful, food comes within minutes. Loved the location of this place too!

Me and husband visited this place for a tasting dinner. We were served Carpaccio for Starter, Duck breast for Main dish and Homemade ice-cream for Dessert. Young but professional chef assisted with dishes' description. Superb service along with gourmet dishes amazed us at this cozy place. Highly recommend when visiting Kaunas.
