We had two portions of the baked dumplings (chicken and beef) which made a good, warming and filling lunch on a freezing January day. This cozy cafe just off the town hall square offered friendly service, good prices and tasty local specialities. Koldunine is licensed too so we had a couple of glasses of wine before going back out to... More

The dumplings were delicious (beef, pork & lamb and curd & mint), and nothing else really matters. Smetana (sour cream) was great as well. The service was pretty fast.

I love dumplings, but this place was disappointing... We tried two dishes: Syberian and mushrooms dumpings. Syberian dumplings was tasteless, like You can buy frozen ones in grocery store. mushrooms , was a bit better, but way to far from expectations and price... What was poor, they put dried dills... If You do not have fresh ones, do not add... More

If you are looking for a local food you should go to this restaurant. Very simple but cozy interior. Most important thing is a quality of food. It was fantastic. I will come back for sure!!! Thank you "koldunine"!!!

Don't expect amazing food here but if you want variouty and to try something different you can visit here couple times a year. I would expect more sauce and sour cream witch is coming with dumplings. And if you go there in the evening it is much more chance that you'll be disapointed, dumplings there are much better at the... More

We're big lovers of dumplings so this is a great place for us - dumpling paradise! They, of course, offer other meals, too, but we come for koldunai. And they're great. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because we don't feel WOW effect and the environment is quite simple, more lunch than dinner place. But... More

Simple atmosphere, cozy, but nothing special. Dumplings (koldunai) are really good. Variety of tastes, good dressings, killing portions and really low prices. Worth visiting.

If you're a fan of pierogi/pelmeni, those Central European/Russian versions of ravioli and known as koldunai in Lithuanian, you must pay a visit to Koldunine. I had borshch (tasty and velvety) followed by koldunai filled with potatoes. They came with sour cream and were excellent and very filling- just what was needed on a cold day. The waitress was friendly... More

This is unapologetic, home-style cooking you won't find outside Eastern Europe. Kolduny are like pierogi or wonton, but with their own twist when it comes to what goes inside. Go for the baked mushroom filling, or the boiled lamb filling, and don't forget to ask for the "crackling" to drizzle over the top. To finish up, if you still have... More

This is fast food. Decent, but not among top 20 places to eat in Vilnius. But if you are in the run AND love a lical version of ravioli - you can do much worse than eating gere.
