TOP 2 – Žemaičių Ąsotis

The best place to try traditional Lithuanian food, especially cepelinai. Pull into this simple, friendly, sticky-table pub for authentic meat-and-potato pancakes from western Lithuania or combine one with a stodgy cepelinas. Pearl-barley blood sausage, curd-potato kastinys and other local favorites are washed down with live barley beer for a full-on, low-cost Lithuanian feast. Thigh-slapping live music by fiddlers and accordionists add to the cosiness when there’s a chill in the air. Groups will love the sets of porky dishes. Downstairs it gets cavernous, ideal for beer-swilling parties.

TOP 4 – Sofa de Pancho

(MEXICAN)

Vilnius is a very international city with influences from many different cultures, though it seems like these guys are the only ones trying to promote Mexican food culture. Oh, and drinking culture, they have more than 30 kinds of tequila!

TOP 5 – Bunte Gans

(GERMAN)

Bunte Gans churns out excellent German cuisine and other dishes in this Old Town favourite.

Dublis 1

(FINE DINING)

Dining as experience. Opt for the ‘restaurant’ and you’ll enjoy a set menu of five imaginative courses, little surprises between the courses and carefully matched wines that will keep you enraptured for three hours or so. Pricey by local standards, with the wine typically costing more than the food, it’s still extraordinarily good value for the quality ingredients and artistic combinations. The chefs visit each table to explain the content of the dishes. Choose the ‘brasserie’ and you’ll get more of a choice, for lunch, dinner or coffee and cake. Service is top notch but the ambiance is non-elitist. You’ll walk away delighted.

TOP 2 – Böff

In September 2012 Böff opened its doors. They collected best beef cuts and accompanied them with great seafood starters and mouthwatering deserts in one menu. Their culinary vision is hidden in very simple setting of Great Ingredients, Great Seasoning, Great Technique and Great Chef crafted food.

TOP 3 – El Gaucho Sano

This cellar restaurant is prized by those in the know for its steaks, but there’s also plenty of other Argentinean specialities on offer for those who like to experiment, making El Gaucho Sano an ideal place to head for diners bored of the usual offerings around town. Last time round we went for the sirloin steak, which was ample in proportions, cooked to perfection and extremely good value considering this is basically a hotel restaurant.

TOP 4 – Hazienda

Enter the secluded courtyard of the Mabre Residence hotel and turn left to find this gem of a restaurant, ideal as a centrally located hideaway for a secret date or for a sheltered business meeting. Practically all of the grills are seductive, from the prime Argentine limousin steak to the venison tenderloin to the bass and the bream. The knowledgeable staff will be able to tell you about the origins of all of the raw material.

California Tapas & Wine

http://www.california.lt/tapasandwine/
Subačiaus g. 2, Vilnius
+37065265551
info@california.lt

California Bar welcomes everyone who enjoys excellent food and drink. They offer tapas, wine, cocktails, and good music. Menu includes a number of traditional Spanish dishes and snacks featuring seafood and dry-cured ham. The menu also includes various vegetables, some of which are roasted in the oven at the client’s request—which is totally different from the sun-dried tomatoes that we are used to. All the desserts are prepared in their kitchen—even the ice-cream with caramelised nuts or lemon ice-cream which is served in lemon skins. Although some people say that California Bar is intended for gourmets, everyone is welcome.

Belgai

info@belgai.lt

Open 11:00 – 23:00, Sun 11:00 – 20:00.

Reopened after renovation, Belgai is better than ever. The interior is a little more contemporary than before, and we like it. The food is as good as ever, and the portions just as you will remember them: enormous, especially the fantastic pots of fresh mussels: still the pick of the menu they serve them at least 20 different, variously inventive, ways. The Belgian beer tasting menu is a treat that more than warrants the price.

Kitchen

Didžioji g. 11, Vilnius

reservation@inthekitchen.lt

An angular experience with plenty of creamy shades and exposed wooden features, this simple offering not only keeps the décor to a minimum but also doesn’t get carried away with the menu. The recommended dishes on offer include a recently eaten plate of miniature fishcakes that despite their laughable size tasted superb. There’s an extensive wine list too. A good choice for those wanting to impress without breaking the bank.

We stopped by on the very evening this exquisite Italian-French-with-a-tropical-touch restaurant opened and it was still hard to fault its professionalism. Mirrors play with the light and chandeliers cast pretty shadows as immaculate waiters carry seafood with the scent of the ocean and foie gras with fig jam. Splash out on tender marbled Argentinean Black Angus filet mignon, yellowfin tuna, perch in banana leaves, or the fabulous mushroom risotto rich with local fungi. A massive wine list rounds it all off.

Bistro 18

Stiklių g. 18, Vilnius
+37067772091
bistro18@gmail.com

A combined restaurant and wine shop, Bistro 18 specializes primarily in dishes from the world of European seasonal cuisine including French onion soup, risotto, pasta and scores of meat-heavy dishes such as beef and rabbit. There are tasty desserts too and the aforementioned wine shop is well-stocked. There’s little sympathy for vegetarians here, but if you’re into classy dining on one of old Vilnius’ most scenic lanes this might just be the place for you. Note that the kitchen closes two hours before the restaurant does.

Lokys
http://www.lokys.lt/lt/
Stiklių g. 8/10
+37052629046
info@lokys.lt

Lokys (The Bear) opened its doors to rouble-paying customers way back in 1972 in the Gothic cellars of an Old Town building dating back to the late 15th century and has been serving so-called traditional hunters’ dishes amidst a slightly tongue-in-cheek backdrop ever since. The limited menu focuses on unusual dishes including quail, venison and even beaver, with a couple of vegetarian options to keep everybody happy. Live music happens from time to time, plus you can rent the entire place for the full blown medieval experience.
