About
Kuchmistr serves an excellent selection of Belarusian / Lithuanian dishes most of which date back to the times of glory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, both of its brave gentry and hard-working peasants, not forgetting about local Jewish and Tartar culinary traditions. The surroundings are swish, the service is friendly and there’s a strict no-smoking policy which plenty of visitors will no doubt enjoy in a city where smoking in public is practically enforced. Don’t forget to have a glass of vodka flavoured with horseradish or bison grass while you’re waiting - or try our fantastic tasting set of 6 self-made liquors and 3 soft drinks.

Had an evening meal here the other day. No room inside (popular!) But was happy to sit outside with a blanket. The view of a T34 whilst you eat your dinner is cool, as are the harp playing ladies which were very good. The waiter...More

Cheers. Glad you were OK, despite rather cold weather outside. How was food, by the way? :-) Basically, we are about food :-)

Sometimes going to the restaurant is like going to your car dealership - painful experience, that leaves you with a strong sense of being screwed somewhere? And than there is a Kuhmistr. Where right from the front steps you will be lathered with family-esqe hospitality...More

We are terribly sorry for your disappointment. Frankly speaking, the dishes you’ve mentioned are sold quite good. Draniki sometimes varies in their reviews, partly because of the seasonal hesitations of the potato properties. The fish soup we’ve introduced recently, and this is the first negative...More
