One of our favourite places to eat whilst visiting Kaunas. Excellent food (presentation and taste) at good value for money. Friendly staff and an interesting painting on the wall, depicting Napoleon and the Frebch Mid Army crossing the Nemunas river. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner there and sat outside! The food was very good you could understand that this is a restaurant that gives emphasis on the quality of the ingredients they use, how they cook and lastly how they present their dishes!
