Description: SENIEJI RUSIAI (Old Cellars) - a European standard restaurant established in the 17 century cellars in the heart of Kaunas old town. The restaurant with the interior in the style of middle ages attracts visitors with their Napoleon's Hall, Noblemen's Hall, and the Hall of Guns. In one of the halls, there is a fresco depicting the Middle French Army crossing the river Nemunas on 24 June 1812 according to the lithography of De C. Montte. The restaurant offers seats for 100 persons, and is capable of servicing 120 persons during social evenings or buffets. We can offer European cuisine for gourmands, a large wine collection from the whole world, high class services as well as elegant and sophisticated environment.

Good place for dinner, but very different quality depend on shift in the kitchen - one is extraordinary, another - less than medium. Old house basement - sharming atmosphere.

Fantastic food, we had the private dining room for 9 of us, service a little slow but well worth the wait!

I recently have eaten in this restaurant in Kaunas. The layout and decor of the restaurant was amazing, the service was outstanding and I couldn't have faulted the food.

We were seated on the lower floor of the restaurant and I personally felt that the ambience was amazing. You felt almost like you were in a medieval castle.

The wine list was excellent and the waiter was very good at helping us pick a wine. He always made sure that we were ok and continually topped up our wine glasses.

I found the found that the food was very fresh and excellent value for money. The menu consisted of many wonderful sea food dishes however plenty of alternatives can be found. I would definitely recomend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Kaunas.

My fiancé and I have ate at this restaurant a couple of times on each visit to Kaunas, and it is excellent.

If you are lucky, you may get an evening with the pianist playing in the background which does make the whole dining experience romantic.

The food itself is flawless, we can't wait to go back!
