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.

I am visiting Kaunas quite often because of business. Every time I am in Kaunas trying to visit this place. Perfect place for cozy dinner. The restaurant is in the heart of Kaunas old town, the environment reflects the spirit of that. Every time I come back here feel very warm welcomed by smiling and professional staff. Place is also perfect for business lunch. The restaurant offers high-class food, which will not disappoint even the most demanding gourmets. I would definitely recommend this place!

I was never a fan of this place. I don't like the atmosphere there, that's first. It doesn't feel cozy at all. The food is average. It's ok, but nothing special that would make you crave of coming back. Maybe the place is ok for big meetings and reunions, but for me it is more of an old style place, and preferred mostly by really mature people (trying to express myself more polite speaking about age). There are far more better places to go in Kaunas..

Our family of 14 have celebrated birthday of a senior family member and have arranged the dinner almost last minute (2 days in advance). All interactions and service from reservation, food selection to the table arrangements, music were just great! On our arrival we were welcomed by the staff and the piano musician. Table was very nicely decorated. All food ( from salad to main meal and desert) was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The service during the dinner was seamless while all food and drinks were served very smoothly and timely.The pianist was adjusting sound volume according to the guests' needs and the music was well selected. The restaurant is situated very close to Theater Club and therefore early dinner followed by cabaret performance was a great combination for Saturday evening.
I would recommend it for family celebrations, business dinner or lunch. "Napoleon" hall was a great place to celebrate! It was a pleasant experience and we will definitely come back again !

Our choice for Senieji Rusiai turned out to be a good one. Every dish in our 3 course meals was attractively composed and displayed, prepared from fresh ingredients, and tasting excellently. Especially worthwhile was the pickled salmon, scandinavian style, served with quail eggs and red caviar, but everything we had was above expectation. We enjoyed eating on the terrace. Service was friendly and professional.
