“Great first restaurant in Vilnius!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and walked into Old Town after a nap. We found Medininkai by lucky accident. We sat out in the courtyard - it was hot and we had campari and sodas. After that we shared a large mixed salad with chopped veggies and wonderful vinaigrette. The menu has a choice of continental fare and traditional fare. We chose the ceppelini with wild mushroom sauce. They were very good and filling, not fried, but rather boiled and the creamy mushroom sauce was light and flavorful with a generous dusting of fresh dill. The meal was accompanied by a basket of fresh breads.

“Amazing Food. Amazing Service.”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Medininkai provides a taste of Lithuania and is fantastically located in the old city of Vilnius. The Food is superb, great value (a 3 course meal for 2 including two beers each came in at around £35 overall) and most importantly great customer service. It was so good - we went back for a 2nd night.

“Great taste of Lithuanian Food!”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

We ate here before going to a concert at the Philharmonic Hall just down the street. We ate inside as it was a bit chilly, though the garden area looked tempting. I'm glad we chose the former as the inside is charming, with old vaulted ceilings and interestng decor. The food was very good. I had Zepallini's--a classic Lithuanian dish made of spiced ground meat surrounded by a potato covering and steamed. They are shaped like the Zepplin--thus the name. Very tasty and hearty--I could finish only one! I started with a wonderful green salad and finished with a classic pastry cake filled with poppy seeds. Delicious. A lovely place for a quiet meal. This is also located near the Russian Orthodox Church and the Gates of Dawn. I advise all visitors to go to the Visitors Center in town and purchase the One Day in Vilnius Map. It is worth the few Litas cost and helped me find my way several times!!
