We enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. Onions soup and snails were good, frog legs - excellent. A table was too small.

This French restaurant is just a little ways off the main drag of Didzioji Gata, far enough from the crowds but easy to walk to. It is a cozy place with a good selection of food, beer, and wine.

A stroke of luck brought us to this restaurant. A lovely atmosphere combined with good service makes this restaurant a must in Vilnius. We loved the Steak and the Sea bass. Overall, very impressed.
