“Cheeky, fun place, not the best food”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

It's one of the few (can't think of any more) concept restaurants in the city. It's fun, it's unique and they have some Belgian beer and very decently priced wine. Lunch menu is also ok. Food could be better, but Chilli con carne (different from what you expect), Belgian fries with 10 sauces, Veal sausages do the job.

“Nice french restaurant with cozy vibe”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

This restaurant is in a small alley just in the center of Vilnius. Tables outside are very nicely placed with a fresh breeze coming through the alley. Also provides intimacy and isolation from the traffic in the city center, so location is very recommendable.

Staff is very attentive and speaks English very well. They will ask for you name and delivers the cutlery in a envelope, nice touch. Deco inside is almost like an Italian osteria, but there can be no discussion about the quality of the food.

The duck breast was very nicely done, skin very crispy and the orange sauce provides a good compliment to the duck taste. The crepes is so delicies I ordered to of them. Prices are comparatively low compared to other restaurants on the main street.

Will have to come back for their filet mignon.

“The place I love”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

One of the best restaurants in town. Friendly staff, great food and reasonable prices.
You just have to try those amazing fries with their home sauces! Order this meal every time.

“Don't mess with my stomac”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

Ok, they have hats, they have a nice range of beers, they gives fork and knife in an envelope.... But what I want is food, served on time. When you think about gargantua, you expect at least quantity... Their gargantua tomato is just messing with our stomac . Fries are not tasty...and all portions are quite small.

“more than average but less than very good”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Stylish in a minimalistic way, with taste. We were a bit unlucky though as they didn't have mussels. So we went for an appetizer of anchovies and they served us an opened box of anchovies nice presented on a plate. Opinable. Main course: chicken casserole a la Provence.. really nothing special, a bit heavy, not tasty. The house wine was good, service attentive and polite offering forks and knife inside a cute envelop with a welcome note.
Too bad the restaurant has just beers (lots of them) and only one red and one house wine... fish is more appetible with a good dry white wine.

Good value for the money.
