“Great french cuisine and cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

One of my favorite restaurants in Vilnius.If you want to feel the cosy shabby Provence atmosphere, to enjoy good cuisine and wine, you are in the right place! Delicious french cuisine and great variety of wines. Dinning outside on the quiet and narrow street of Old town makes you feel so relaxed...
You will meet a lot of expats there, so be sure to book a table. Anyway, the balance of the food and price was much better at the beginning...Nevertheless, the dishes are very tasty, but unlike deserts. Some of the waiters work for a long time, though not all of them are friendly. A bit arogant. One of the waiters won the best somelier prize in Lithuania.
Despite all the above, it is still one of my favorite restaurants in Vilnius, which you must visit once in Vilnius.

“french corner in Vilnius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Without reservation we found a table at 3pm on sunday and were met by a friendly hostess, the waiter was attentive and friendly too, both speak fluent english. All ordered seafood dishes were fresh and tasty, cheap porugese vinho verde wine made this lunch even better! All in all very good value if you like seafood or just fine french cousine and don't want to pay a lot.

“Hands down best restaurant in Vilnius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great food, great service at a great price once again we visited with a family friend service was very polite and efficient, maybe it's odd that they don't set he cutlery on the table but that's about it was is strange, my wife had the fish soup. A meal on its own she really enjoyed. I should have chosen the fried foie gras instead the pate but steak made up for it. And our daughter enjoyed her first fried potato in a French restaurant

“Good Romantic Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is one of the best hidden places in Vilnius for dining. Great French-styled restaurant. Excellent meat dishes and wine. They have the best cheese selection in town.

“Great wine, so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

It started as a very cozy place for a wine. Actually, one of the first winehouses in the city. But during the years Saint Germain added proper food and became just another restaurant with average, yet criminally overpriced menu. Tuna steak is ok, the rest is forgettable. Still, ok place to have a bottle of Sauvingnon.
