“Very good - could have been great, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

They've got a good thing going, there's no doubt about that. What surprised me was a couple of minor details: two out of four main dishes featured the same new potatoes and beets. One of the three salads had those awful tiny and watery supermarket defrosted shrimp. Both of the two deserts were served without ice-cream (the waiter was somewhat apologetic: "...we ran out of ice-cream, sorry..."). The only rosé wine on the list was NOT there that night (a much more expensive substition was offered, though). The waiter was a little too personal and presuming ("...what, no pepper on your mackerel? REALLY?!").

Make no mistake: it's still head and shoulders above the competition.

“Trustworthy gourmet in Klaipeda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Definitely worth a visit for any foodie stuck in my home town. I return every year to LT and this year there was La Cle popping up. Glad I went, the place has set a new benchmark for food sophistication in Klaipeda. Hard to book though, they just don't pick up the phone.

“La Cley Restaurant, Klaipeda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

There are many good restaurants in the town but I rate the La Cley amongst the best. It is located on the edge of the main square of the old town. It has a daily changing menu based on produce availability and season. It is not large and the numerous staff provide an excellent quality of service. It is not expensive and from experience booking is recommended. An comprehensive wine list at sensible prices. Good value for money

“A good place in the centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I have been in this restaurant twice for lunch and dinner. The food and wines we tried were good. The staff were helpful. La cle is a restaurant where the owner concentrates on the kitchen or not on the design inside. When you are there you feel like somewhere in South Europe. Everyone enjoys the food and the drink. Recommended.

“Always fresh food and meniu varies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Every time you come, find some new dishes, you never know what's on meniu but it's always amazing-the chef is the owner, so quality is very high. It's better to book a table in advance.
