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.

Very good staff and amazing food portions for an absolute rock bottom price! The European atmosphere plus indoor/outdoor seating is fantastic. Outdoor grill/brick oven enhances the stellar tasting food and beverages!

Not much to say. They don't know how to treat a customer: you can't rudely force 7 people to wait for 90 mins for typical pancakes. Worst place in Kaunas.

A group of 7 people entering the place. The rudest waiters on Earth: 48 MINUTES before actually getting to ORDER. The funny part is that we received this treatment when people at other tables came after us, ate THE SAME things before us and LEFT before us. So we received this kind of treatment because they decided to do so... More
