This week we visit: Lithuania
Lithuania is a fantastic country to visit and in all of its cities and towns, you will find plenty of great eateries to choose from. Since we would be doing everyone a disservice by trying to cram all the best Lithuanian restaurants in a single article, we decided to concentrate solely on the best restaurants in Vilnius, the country’s capital.
Neringa is Vilnius’ elder statesman if you wish, a.ka.a. the oldest restaurant still working in the city. It opened in 1959. At the time, it was by far the most luxurious restaurant, but today it does look a bit dated, we have to say. Still, they do some amazing dishes and a trip to Vilnius simply would not be complete without a meal at Neringa.
If you are looking for something vegetarian, then the place to be is Vegacafe. It is a very laidback place, with a great atmosphere and an incredible selection of vegetarian dishes made from local produce. You will fall even more in love with Vegacafe if you are into Ayurvedic cooking.
For those who wish to try true Lithuanian food, there is no better place than Senoji Trobele (Old Hut in Lithuanian). It has a rustic, folk-themed décor and the dishes are all very down to earth and utterly Lithuanian. Make sure to try their sweet mead after a hearty meal.
In case you are a fan of French cuisine, there are two great restaurants in Vilnius to choose from. One of them is Restaurant Balzac and the other one is La Provence. Both these restaurants do incredible French food and you won’t go wrong with either. Restaurant Rene is dedicated to Belgian cuisine and Rene Magritte whose art has influenced the décor. If you plan on going to Rene on a weekend, make sure to make a reservation.
