Description: *The restaurant is closed for the summer holidays. See you in August. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused you, and we appreciate your understanding! Hidden in an out-of-the-way location near the Old Town Square - G. Vine is not easy to spot, but we assure you - the seeking is worth it. G. Vine is an exploration of human sensory in search of the unique experience. The award-wining interior pleases the eye, the musique couture puts a spell on you and elevates to another dimension, the wine tastes absolutely fine and the down to earth founder of the place walks as guru of Gods drink in his bare feet sharing traveling experiences and knowledge. Oh, and the heavenly seasonal food that melts in your mouth awakening the sense of taste: fresh, crunchy vegetables and fruits straight from the gardens of Lithuanian farmers, fresh fish from the Curonian Lagoon, rivers and lakes, as well as quality lamb steaks and delicious oysters. The original menu was created by Lithuanian celebrity chef Martynas Praskevicius. The fifth sense of touch is subtle metaphor illustrating the flirtatious atmosphere of the vinery. And finally the sixth sense of the comforting feeling, the feeling that you have been lost for some time and you've finally found home. G stands for good. Our doors are open for your explorations. And if you've already been here, we have no doubts - you will come back, this place is damn addictive.

“Great place, dissapointing service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Interesting location, great interior, very interesting ant tasty food. Prices are quite high, but reasonable for such place.
We were dissapointed with the waitress though, as she seamed like out-of-place for this kind of venue: seemingly very low level of qualification, communication and attention, even though we were the only table there. I appreciate the cosy/informal idea of Gvine, but the manners were maybe suitable for a cheap pub, not a restaurant. Don't get me wrong,she wasn't being rude or anything, just not the level of service one would expect from such place.
All in all, would visit again, hopefully meet more staff as well.

“G.vine- true dedication”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Just arrived from G.vine to our hotel. The place was not so easy to spot in the autumn evening. The seeking was well worth it. The food and service was best in Kaunas so far. Everything was made from a scratch with dedication and heart. Highly Recommended by foodies and winelovers. Be prepared to pay with cash, prices were very decent!

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The meal served was the most sophisticated and delicious I have ever had in Lithuania. It was obvious that all products were fresh and selected with great care not mentioning the overall outstanding taste of various dishes. Very inventive and cosy interior, hospitable owner. Wide selection of good wines. Please keep the spirit - we will meet again soon!
