We were a group of some 20 people celebrating a farewell dinner, all quite happy with their food. Nice cellar vaults and friendly staff. Not overly prized.

Thoroughly enjoyed evening here. Food was good. Both particularly enjoyed the soup served in a bread dish. Service was friendly and helpful, attentive but unhurried. Courtyard made for great location to eat. Would eat here again if we return to Vilnius

Great place, great staff. Many sorts local beer and lots of Lithuanian traditional dishes. Make sure you tried beef tongue. The place is in nice ancient medieval courtyard. Highly recommended!
