“Interesting Karaite cuisine ”
Review of Kiubete

Kiubete
Ranked #12 of 26 Restaurants in Trakai
Cuisines: Eastern European
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 29, 2018 via mobile

This choice was a recommendation from a native when asking her for a place to taste local cuisine. This restaurant is specialized particularly in the Karaite cuisine based on pastry filled with meat. We learnt the Karaites left their influence on the Lithuanian cuisine in the past.


We ordered several small pies (Kibinai) filled with lamb, pork, beef or chicken. And also some sort of rounded patties (Kiubete), with funny cherry wine.


Personally speaking, I would say we were not passionate about this sort of patties and pies, maybe just because they seemed no so much tasty. But, the point is the Kibinai and Kiubete are worthy to taste just due to the fact they are something totally different.

And, very important, this is good value for money.

This place offers very affordable Lithuanian cuisine. The place is very nice, looks more like an old Lithuanian house than a tourist place, and the consumers were mostly locals.

Nice service, menus translated in English, and they do their possible to communicate in English.

I recommend this place instead of the expensive tourist restaurants with a view on the castle.

Small and warm place for a tasty bite to eat. Very straightforward tasty food. Pies/pasties were enjoyed by my husband and I had some nice warming soup (it was a cold wet August day and we'd cycled around Trakai and were drenched!). Reasonable prices. Go for the quick dishes was the recommendation of our local Lithuanian guide, we did and they were great. Not many veggie options though (like most of the Baltics).

Very good food. I tried local dish called kibinas and a local dessert. Both were very good. Prices are reasonable. Place also is in a nice area, not far from main atrractions.

This place is a must if your in the area.
They have a speciality of what we would describe as pastry. There are pies and pasties which I would highly recommend.
