Last night of our Baltic States tour and 18 of us were taken by our guide to this restaurant.Things started badly as a vegan member could not find anything to order - though she insisted that on their website she had seen dishes she would...have ordered-she left.We had orders mixed up as dishes ordered were not what was delivered to the table.Drinks took for ever to arrive.The two waiters had obviously be trained by Manuel in Fawlty Towers -the bill splitting at the end was time consuming .The thing is I really enjoyed my starter & mains -but there was so much chaos going on, it is really hard to score the restaurant. I have decided on average with very poor service - not a cheap place particularly the wine.More

At 9 Euros I expected the ‘Ravioli with boletus’ to be much better than it was! There was very little of it, but once I ‘tasted’ it I was actually glad. I knew that boletus was mushrooms, but didn’t expect the very thin ravioli pouches...to contain just watery, tasteless, mushroom liquid!More

The food is really delicious and fancy. Though the price range is a bit higher than most places in Vilnius, but it is really worth it as they have their own biodynamic farm where they grow vegetables and quail. The place has really fine wine...selection and the staff is really friendly. I also like to have a lunch there!More

Good restaurant, worth to visit! Good choice of dishes and wine! We've been there twice and would come again with pleasure during the next stay in Vilnius) We've tried snails, scallops, halibut and dark breast - all dishes was cooked perfectly! Yam-yam))) In my opinion...this place is good for the gourmets and good food-lovers. Two-dish dinner with bottle of Italian wine - about 100 euro.More

This is not the cheapest restaurant in Vilnius, and neither is it the best location, but I can still highly recommend it. The food is very well presented and cooked to perfection. The soufflé was especially tasty and a perfect way to round off a...pleasant dinner. The wait staff is very friendly and unobtrusive.More

We had the veal cheek, which was well cooked and very tender - very tasty. However, the meat portion was a bit small. Esse have a good selection of mostly Italian wines. Waiters could speak more English!
