Description: The restaurant „Aula“is located in the vaulted mediaeval premises of Vilnius University, in the heart of the Vilnius old town, Pilies street, between the Cathedral and the town hall. We have made an attempt to preserve the traditions of old Lithuanian kitchen considering contemporary taste. As Lithuanians are proud of their traditional kitchen and beer, we provide a rich assortment of “Švyturys’ beer. All dishes in AULA are prepared only from fresh food; moreover, a cook can start preparing the meal only when a customer makes an order. If a customer prefers something special or cannot find what he wants in the menu, we can arrange an individual menu for him, however an individual order should be made a day before. A new-look menu of the restaurant “AULA“ continues old restaurant traditions formed since 1998 – an exclusive attention to the quality of products and freshness – new combinations of food products and forms of their representation are offered as well. The emblem of “Švyturys“ embassy guarantees that in restaurant “AULA“ there is always a great offer of qualitative food, its special presentation and healthy food. The main task of the embassy – to propagate a cultivate consumption of beer, to promote the understanding about good food, combination of beer with meals. On purpose of justifying the name of “Švyturys embassy“, most meals are offered with beer sauces, beer caramel or beer marinate used in their production. In the beer restaurant AULA a comfortable space for a small company can be found to have a business dinner. To have a good time when waiting for your order you are provided with a chance to enjoy the books on the shelves. During summer time a terrace in Pilies street and historical yard of Vilnius university is open for you. Furhermore, the summer terrase in Pilies street is available as well. All restaurant halls and gardens also have big TV sets or projectors were all live sport translations are shown. In the cellar of the restaurant you will find two cellar halls. The VIP hall is designed for 10-15 people company that prefers intimate atmosphere for a nice evening. The VIP hall is provided with modern video and sound equipment. The cellar hall is usually used for bigger entertainments because here there is enough room not only to sit at the table but also to dance. Henceforth restaurant „AULA“ will be adorable place not only for food, but also for music gourmets. In the cellar of the restaurant is located live music club “AULA Blues club”. Three music styles (jazz, blues and rock) are united in „AULA Blues club“. This project designed for people who like live music or want to relax in democratic atmosphere. Most of the concerts in "AULA Blues club" are for free.

“No rush”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We did enjoy the beer on the terrace but the dish we ordered - although tasty - took 50 minutes to be delivered. Not for people in a hurry.

“Extremly slow service and cold food”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had lunch in this restaurant. We sat outside on along the street and it was only half full with people. Even so it took half an hour to get the food. We asked for it a couple of times and the waitress was almost not bothered to even look at us an answer! And when we got it the plate was warmer than the food!

“Great place! Great live shows”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went there for dinner. The Lithuanian soups (beetroot & mushroom) were fantastic! And another bonus - they have live shows in the summer! A local BluesqRock band was playing, and the atmosphere was just great. Recommended!

“Bad food & bad service”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I wanted to like this place but everything went wrong... multiple items in our order were wrong and some we never even received, also we had dinner plates come out before some appetizers. Just about every item came out individually, nothing came out together. That restaurant was not busy either...Very unfortunately.

Wifi does not work in the back outside area.
