They serve wonderful breakfast but the main dishes are getting worse with time. It’s hot inside - no air conditioning or maybe issues with it

Food was nice. Service was subpar for a restaurant. Restaurant was almost empty, however the waiter was always late and seemed disinterested.

Me and two of my friends ordered the whole menu and we were'nt dissapointed. Food was delicous. We could also see the kitchen through a glass wall, which was really cool.

Top place in Klaipeda, we been at least 5,6 times basically every single time we visit the city. Service it’s super friendly, They speak a very good English so do not worries if like me you don’t speak Lithuanian. Good it’s simple on essence but...flavors are super reach and pure. They really show some good cooking skills.More

Tasty brunch - though a bit pricey and little choice but very cozy place, quality food and kind, caring and helpful service. They also serve tasty daily dishes. Will come back again!

Been visiting Klaipeda for years and never I’ve tried a restaurant this good. Limited but carefully selected menu, excellent ingredients, nice presentations combined with great wines and top service. Can only recommend!

Most likely the best restaurant in Klaipeda. Decor was relaxing and atmosphere was nice. The food was trying too much and as a whole it was hard to make out what the style or theme of the menu was.

Small surroundings, professional waiters and small yet selected menu made us believe that this restaurant will not disappoint us. Unfortunately it didn’t blew our minds at all. Our first cold starter - raw beef with philadelphia and carrots was a bit too much. Presentation itself...was something different and interesting, but it was a bit unpleasant to eat a big chunks of raw meat. And believe me we are a big raw beef lovers. Also there was too much of philadelphia because it overwhelmed everything and creamy cheese was the only thing you could taste. Our second starter was salmon tartar and it was truthly one of the best raw salmon dishes I’ve tried. It was so well balanced, light and fresh. This dish is worth coming back again. For our only hot starter we chose wonton dumplings with duck and truffle mousse. We were surprised that the dough was so light and fresh. But the consistensy of duck was strange. It felt like half of it was finely chopped and the other half - minced. And strangely the most disappointing part was that truffle mousse. Because it’s taste was so intense that it overwhelmed everything else in the dish. And finely - white fish. I really liked fish on it’s own because of it’s lightness, freshness and it also had a really delicious crispy crust. But potatoe and bacon base was too greasy and although we shared this main course we could hardly finish it. I really liked those two girls who worked that day and served our table. But dishes should be balanced better.More

They have a very small and limited menue, only three small starters, three snacks, three main courses and three desserts. But they are very well composed, everythign is a little special and they are perfectly done. Without and comment. The service is attentive and nice....The prices are - in compare to the region - on the top level.More
