After a bad experience, in a visit to Lithuania, when in this restaurant, my credit card was skimmed (and used in another cave of cheaters called Havana Social Club, in Vilnius), I decided, that may be it could be something differnet today. Of course the staff members are not the same.... More

We really wanted a bit of a meat feast and chips. And that is what we got. Our waiter Andrej was brilliant and recommended some great things from the menu. The chimmichuri sauce especially. Tasty meat and lovely spiced wedges, washed down with some great beer. As well as this there was a live musician playin guitar who wasn't intrusive... More

If you want to have a simple straight forward meal. Just a good piece of meat and french fries, this is the place to be. Don't expect something special. Order a pint of beer and enjoy your meal.....

We splashed out and had a portion of spicy potatoes each... We had way too much food and one portion of potatoes would have been... More

Went for a romantic dinner with my girlfriend. The restaurant is located in the heart of the old town with a great atmostphere inside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The wine selection was impressive and the steak were superb.

Had a very good experience. Service was excellent and the lamb was superb. Prices is a little high but can be defended by good quality and service. Dinner was about 24US and a pint of beer was 3,5US

Few years ago it was probably the best place for steaks in Vilnius. Took a guest from UK few days ago, and ended up apologizing for poor food. Steaks could not even be called steaks, some piece of old animal, impossible to chew on, although I ordered medium rear. We ended up leaving without even finishing our dinner. I was... More
