Narrow Stikliu street in the old town of Vilnius began it‘s history in XVth century, when merchants and craftsmen, invited by Lithuanian Grand Dukes, here started their businesses - shops, workshops and taverns.The building, where currently restaurant “Lokys” is situated, was build in the end of XVth century for one of the merchants both for living and trading purposes.Over centuries, gothic cellars changed their owners for couple of times. Here have been shops, taverns and beerhouses, until 1972, when it was restored and hunters’ restaurant “Lokys” housed here.

Dine like a duke, literally!

The restaurant Lokys recreates the setting and cuisine of the medieval Lithuanian dukes. Deep within a historic cellar, I enjoyed a savory "rustic beaver meat stew" which was very fulfilling. The staff was helpful and the ambiance was very enjoyable. While perhaps some of these dishes (the one I... read more

A memorable meal tonight in this restaurant that specializes in game. I didn't have the guts to try the beaver but did opt for the salad garnished with juicy and generous strips of venison, followed by wild boar, expertly prepared and adorned withe ligonberrry sauce. There is a good selection of wine by the glass, especially robust reds to stand... More

Dinner felt like lunch with the long daylight hours in Vilnius in June, but it allowed for al fresco dining at Lokys. The humble mushroom soup was brought to a different level and like no other for depth of flavour. This followed by the boar, perfectly cooked and matched with pear. A must for those wishing to taste Lithuanian food,... More

An absolutely beautiful courtyard setting. Wasn't expecting it to be so good. It's different than other novelty exotic meat restaurants. Nothing cheesey about it. Our table had Venison, Boar, and Beaver. All delicious. Great service by Vilnius standards.

We had lunch at restaurant Lokys in beautiful Vilnius old town. Wild meat and quail were disappointing. Service correct, but the lady serving was very uninspiring. After asking about the quail dish she replied she would be lazy to play with the little bones of the bird. Prices are way too high for it's standard.

The service was very efficient. Too efficient. I felt like i was on a conveyor belt. The borscht soup was nice, the beaver stew as well. But i woild not retutn, felt like a factory not a restaurant.

Whilst the decent down into the cellar may be a little daunting given the very low head room it does add to the character of the place. Apparently it was an old merchants house and the cellar was used for many things but now as a restaurant offered some unusual dishes to tempt the palate. Mine was Hodgepodge soup, a... More

The only regret that we have is that downstairs was closed as there were not many people. However, the courtyard where we were seated was very pleasant. The waiter who served was very attentive and helpful. You have a chance to sample unusual food (beaver meat) and drink (kvas). Yes, it is a bit more expensive then elsewhere but defintely... More

We met with our family from Vilnius. We enjoyed our meal. We all ordered different things. Service was a little slow, however the food was worth the wait! It did cost more than other great food in Vilnius.
