About
A seaside restaurant in the city. A cozy little place on a lovely district Uzupis. Our menu changes daily to reflect the freshest and best quality Lithuanian fish. We sell only fish from small day boats, embracing our 'sea to plate' philosophy. A collection of wines have been carefully selected to create perfect dinner and drinks partnerships. We have outdoor seating for al fresco dining! The restaurant is best for romantic dinners, business meetings or informal gatherings. No kids under 12 allowed.

First time we visited this restaurant ten years ago. It was amazing and staff was very friendly and welcoming, food delicious! We immediateky fell in love with this restaurant. As we visit this part of Lithuania every year, it became our family tradition to have...nice dinner in this local fish restaurant. Sadly it tends to get worse every year. Food is still OK, mostly fresh, but atmosphere and overall experience is completely different from what we had first time. Staff wont value their customers anymore, and this year it came to the point that we decided not to come back to Sturmu svyturys anymore.More

I. Absolutely. Love. This. Place. Salted fish and fruits? Who knew it worked so well. Just blew my mind. Speak to the waitress and find out what’s interesting and you won’t be disappointed. We really enjoyed dziaugsmas and ertlio namas but maybe this was our...favourite! Will definitely come back. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.More

Well, it was my last visit to Sturmu svyturys in Vilnius. Few previous times I had a really good experience. But not this time. The difference was that this time there were no owners in the restaurant and staff was rude and inattentive. I like...that the menu is short however no idea what the ingredients are. I am allergic to gluten and I found out that fish is covered in flour just after bringing it to the table. The waitress dared to comment that it is my fault that I hadn’t asked. I said but you haven’t written. So she recommended that I had to listen better. Replying to her comment that nobody said anything about that, she finished the discussion telling that it was still my fault that I had to take responsibility for my own health. I did- left all food untouched. The soup was really good and appetizers as well. I don’t have any comments regarding the main dish, because ai didn’t try it. however the veggies were to sweet. In general the restaurant is less attractive then it was before. And because of the staff attitude I won’t come back anymore and won’t recommend it to anybody. By the way, I would recommend to add some washing liquid to your washing machine because the smell of glasses is as dirty towel!More

The quality of food is really good, tasty. Interesting seafood prepared in interesting & simple way. Salutes to the chef. However top 6 in Lithuania? Yes it is great place, but I think too simple to be that high in top. Also atmosphere, cleanness of...table, smell of clean glaases (like dirty towel), attitude & welcoming skills of restaurant personal needs some improvement, but all in all a decent&simple place to get a nice dinner for seafood lovers. Oh, and the portions are for sharing, and those aren't very big like they say.More

This place is amazing- the goat cheese and beet salad was wonderful, the tuna steak was to die for, and the wine perfect to top it all off. Highly recommended!

As other reviewers said - this restaurant has had a lot of hype - but did not live up to the reviews - No matter that the menu is limited - the portions are very small and very expensive - ( i am from New...York and this restaurant charges NY prices in Lithuania) Surprising for a small place that was not busy - the wait staff was not attentive and for what we paid they should have been - Also if you do no like wine or want beer - then you are out of luck -- with that said - the fish is very fresh as they bring it in daily - directly.More

Very good fish restaurant in the heart of old town. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced, however, the menu is very limited. Great if you like fish, but not a lot of other options for others.

One of the best fish restaurants in Vilanius. We have visited this restaurant twice during our 5 nights stay in Vilanius and found it as the best choice. We tried the 2 appetizers in the menu and found them great. Big portions that we share,...beautiful looking and most of all a great taste. The main course is changig due to available fish it is very fresh and the service is very friendly. Very recommanded.More

Looks like this question is aimed to "Sturmu Svyturys" owners, rather than reviewers. Also I looked at reviews and I understand the topic - most of the reviews of "Sturmu Svyturys" are written from accounts with only one... More
