For instance, there are special hunting menu.I ate venison meat roasts with honey - wine sauce and cranberry jam, served with cheese-stuffed potato croquettes and roasted carrot and zucchini, Customer service was high-level: the waitress was able to recommend the dishes from the menu and also...

I visited Lokys in midweek, outside of the main tourist season. In the evening it was busy but not quite full; they seemed only to be using the ground-floor restaurant, as there was no sign of the cellar mentioned in other reviews being open. Having chosen my dinner from the online menu beforehand, I was well pleased with my choice... More

We went there for lunch and tried local soups (good) and coffee made of acorns (special). The place is supposed to serve perfect bear (we did not try). Ambience: not as impressive as you could expect. Service OK-ish - difficult to get local people smile :-)

One from options for the dinner. Nothing specific. Service was good, food - average for the price. Historical place from Soviet times.

Not for the light diner or thrifty traveller, this restaurant serves superb meat with a hunter's theme. My venison was tender tasty and beautifully cooked and I couldn't resist the local Lithuanian dessert of fried pastry with seeds and local honey served with a glass of dessert wine. Money well spent for an excellent meal in a pleasant ambience with... More

Fantastic atmosphere and delicious food. We were a group of 22 and they accommodated us round a large table in the private dining room in the basement. The service was attentive and they gave us individual bills which made the process of paying so much easier. A meat-lover's paradise: I had the wild boar and also tasted the venison. The... More

Went here twice: just two of us and within the big group. Both times we enjoyed our food and the service was efficient (lithuanian standart of service seems slowish, so this was good within lithuanian standart). Restaurant is huge - the first time we were led into very atmospheric arched private cellar room. The second time we had also a... More

The restaurant is a breath of fresh air - every time the foreign guests ask for local kitchen, this is the only place in Vilnius that enables to avoid soviet style food and proves that Lithuanian kitchen is - and used to be - more than potatoes, prepared in every possible way. The game is excellent (especially the venison) and... More

The restaurant is located in the heart of Vilnius in an old-style building. Although we stepped in by chance, they had a table for us (without reservation), but making a reservation is recommended. We would classify the food as an upper-class combination of Lithuanian and European style (as far as we learned to know the Lithuanian style). Try the Beaver... More
