Delicious hearty soups made from scratch based on recipes collected through our global travel and named after our favourite cities famous for making them. True explosion of flavour and colour with an abundance of vegetables added to a rich stock. The stock is made by boiling marrow bones for meat soups and whole fish for fish soups, a process that takes four to six hours, to create a nutrition-full soup – a meal on its own.

Ttraditional Lithuanian pastries filled with rich and flavourful stuffing. Meat-lovers will enjoy kibinai with lamb and leek or pork and cabbage. We also make salmon kibinai and vegetarians will appreciate kibinai filled with cottage cheese and spinach or assorted wild mushrooms. Kibinai are well enjoyed on their own or paired up with our soups. Served with our home-made dip and sour cream to enhance the flavour.

A selection of home-made cakes baked daily includes our heavenly honey cake “medovik”, a healthy brownie with shredded zucchini to enrich the texture, a cottage cheese roll with lemon zest, a savoury apple sponge made from sour apples and best served warm, and our famous curd-cheese pancakes “syrniki” served with sour cream, maple syrup, fresh fruit and mint. Our desserts are well supplemented by our selection of coffee and tea.

“Tasty food, set inside a lovely restaurant.”

It was an real incredible experience for me. The quality of food was only matched by the quality of service I got. I wish I can keep the flavor in my mouth for ever. Thanks for making the evening an unforgettable one.
