“Old basement (it's name translation)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Good place for dinner, but very different quality depend on shift in the kitchen - one is extraordinary, another - less than medium. Old house basement - sharming atmosphere.

“Fantastic Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

I recently have eaten in this restaurant in Kaunas. The layout and decor of the restaurant was amazing, the service was outstanding and I couldn't have faulted the food.

We were seated on the lower floor of the restaurant and I personally felt that the ambience was amazing. You felt almost like you were in a medieval castle.

The wine list was excellent and the waiter was very good at helping us pick a wine. He always made sure that we were ok and continually topped up our wine glasses.

I found the found that the food was very fresh and excellent value for money. The menu consisted of many wonderful sea food dishes however plenty of alternatives can be found. I would definitely recomend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Kaunas.

“Terrific food in a warm atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

My fiancé and I have ate at this restaurant a couple of times on each visit to Kaunas, and it is excellent.

If you are lucky, you may get an evening with the pianist playing in the background which does make the whole dining experience romantic.

The food itself is flawless, we can't wait to go back!
