Nothing seemed to be a problem to ask for or to deal with. All the compliments goes to Jolita, the manager of the restaurant. Secondly, the staff. They were brilliant! They... More

We have recently had an amazing wedding dinner at Senieji Rusiai. The venue is perfect for a small group of people as it feels both private and very cosy, and the staff are very attentive. We received first class service from the day we accepted the offer of the set menu for 20 people. We were offered a great variety... More

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!

More to the point for me, the price was right. A high quality three course meal with wine for two came to only about 50 euros, about... More

On a four day stay in Kaunas we ate here twice. Having chosen it at random on the first night, we were so impressed by the quality of the food, and the attentive and fast (by Lithuanian standards)service, that we returned on our final night. Prices are at the upper end, but still very reasonable by European standards. If you... More

Me and my wife were visiting Kaunas in the beginning of June 2014 and had dinner at Senieji Rüsiai. Perfect service, a very good Dry martini and an excellent dinner made us really satisfied. We can recommend this restaurant yo everybody that likes good food to reasonable price.

Took my husband for our wedding anniversary. Service was superb, attentive and waiter was giving nice suggestions. The place itself has a nice atmosphere and yes it's in the cellar of one of the old houses in the old town of Kaunas. Here they are serving the best quail I have ever tried. Actually all the dishes we tried were... More
