“Competitive quality”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

Pylimo gatve and surrounding or connecting streets are full of restaurants offering lunch at special rates. So Aux Champs Elysées should be compared with these neighbouring or closeby restaurants. I can confidently say I have tried them all and have found Aux Champs Elysées to offer competitive quality of food and atmosphere at competitive prices. Above all it is clean, the waitresses are very friendly and understanding. They are quick to remember a face and your particular whims and fancies. A piano is available for playing if you are in the mood. The soup is 5 LT and the main course 10 LT with alternating menu for each day which is advertised outside the restaurant. The staff are simply charming, the cuisine exquisite. Highly recommendable.

“Eating point, not restaurant”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Sorry but it is true! When I found at Tripadvisor this new and so good recomended restaurant (2-nd place in Vilnius! at that time) I decided to visit it! But I was upset! I was born in Vilnius and love this town. There are a lot of worthy places in Vilnius for dinner.
At this place, sorry, I can't say "restaurant", you can find no-frills food and decent interior. And that's all :( Not bad, but do not waste time. It looks like good school canteen and the dishes have the same taste. For example, main dishes they serving on too small plate so vegetables (few slices of cocomber and tomato) are little bit mixed with mashed potatoes :)as meat is dragged with potatoes too... Edible but not appetizing.
Prices are not high, the same as at low cost cafe or pizzeria.
No parking nearby.
You can't find this place occasionally. It located around the corner from the tourist routes.

“A dissapointment...”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

Newly opened French "restaurant" (I'd not call it that way). The food is poor, the interior is very poor (it looks like the owners tried to mimic the French bistro interior, but they definitely failed). There are some much better French places in Vilnius.

“Good service - average food”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Was in here today and had dinner.
The foie gras (duck I guess) was perfect on apple with jam and very good white bread. And to 20litas I will go back to eat it again.
My beef with cheese sauce was more average especially compared with Bistro 18 or La Provance.where I also had beef this trip.and salad was a bit boring - the fries was McDonalds type but ok taste.
My desert chocolate fondant was to dry more like a bun. So sadly my meal started great but ended up as average.
I had a white and a red wine from the same producer quite ok wines and a coffee latte with Baileys also quite good. But they can need bigger wineglasses and maybe more correct type of glasses for white and red wine.
Total price I think was 102litas not expensive. But I would have paid 10 litas more to get the chocolate fondant more correct.
Service was quite good I would say, it seems like the workers in Vilnius are starting to learn that service are important.
Overall a 3,5 I think. Place is ok enough but there are better places but of course it will be a subjective meaning.
