The service is slow and poor. Main courses waiting time is approx. 1,5 hours. So be patient. And enjoy the view, which is the only one thing you can enjoy.

The location is brilliant, smack bang in the middle of the city. It’s easy to access and you can even have a few of the city without eating in the restaurant. We weren’t hungry so we decided to go just for drinks. There’s a good...choice of drinks, and I opted for espresso martinis. It wasn’t he best espresso martini I’ve ever tried but it was drinkable. The kitchen is an open kitchen which is inside the restaurant which is lovely as you could see the chefs at work, the only downside to this was that you smell of food when you l leave. There’s also a small smoking balcony up the top to save having to get a lift all the way down. Overall, this place is lovely place to spend time with you family or friends, to enjoy watching the sunset and having a few drinks.More

We (me and my partner) booked a table here, as the restaurant was advertised in the hotel. Arrived, stood for about 5 min. Eventually a lady approached us and pointed to one of the tables. We started walking and realised- there was a reserved sign...on one of them, but the table was set for four, so we weren't quite sure the table was meant for us. When we turned to ask her, she wasn't there. I have worked in a restaurant and I believe the least you can do is to show someone to their table. We got her attention to ask if this is for us. With a most unwelcoming face expression once again looked at us and pointed to the same table. We sat down and were hoping it will get better. Nah, wrong. After that, the waiter was rude and emotionless. Only one good thing about this place was the food. Duck was lovely. Guessing the food law is a bit different there, as the duck was well done, but still very nice. I am always a very good tipper and sadly some people simply does not realise how just by being polite they could earn some extra cash.More

Of course the view of the harbor and the sun setting over the Baltic is breath taking. But dinner and the service were beyond our highest expectations. Our waiter's suggestions were spot on. He could not have been more inconspicuously attentive. He was just there...as we realized we wanted something. My steak was perfect and the others in the party said the same about their meals - both in flavor and presentation. The wine was pleasant, but the desert was divine. The whole evening was a joyMore

We were with quite a group, so some attention could be expected, right? More clients, more profit! We called one of the two ladies to order the drinks, she looked and... nothing! She wasn't busy with something else, she just ignored us with a kind...of grumpy look. I almost would take all my guests with me and go somewhere else, it was nearly insulting. Anyway, she came, took the order without any smile or emotion, it became such a joke all evening that in the end we had to laugh about it. Restaurant is good, food is nice, the view is beautiful. But hey boss, do something with your servants. I am not going there anymore.More

It is situated in the most picturesque building in Klaipeda. You can always enjoy incredibly charming views to Curonian Lagoon , Baltic see,the port and old city. The staff is exceptional communicating,courteous,heartily advising on all questions about menu. Baked burgundy snails were fantastic.The main course-...always delicious,the grill vegetables - perfect.All their desserts-melts in your mouth,all components are well balanced and impressively served.And the most delicious are:the mascarpone cheese dessert and hot chocolate pie with vanilla ice cream. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

This was one of the worst dinners ever. The service was horrific. The server was literally looking at our raised arms [to get her attention] and explicitly doing other things but attending to our table. We were trying to get her attention numerous times and...each time had to walk up to the bar. A bottle of pepsi which I ended up bringing to the table myself required two walks to the bar. At a cafe -sure, but at a restaurant located in a 4 star hotel - very disappointing. The main course came out before we were even half way done with our appetizer. There was also cold bread and almost melting butter, pate and fig jam with nothing to spread it on, and the buser dismissing my husband for looking for the server. The food was mediocre. A dissatisfying experience.More
