On January 13, 1991, 14 civilians were killed while they formed a blockade against the Soviet troops who attempted to seize the tower. A museum dedicated to this event is housed on the ground floor.

Bistro-style dishes are served from 11am to 6pm, which include salad, burgers, waffles, and assorted desserts. From 6pm onward, European main courses are served. Alcoholic beverages are available.
I had a sandwich, a cheese platter, and a few glasses of wine when I was here. Obviously, that wasn't enough for me to actually write a review about the restaurant, so you can head on to its Facebook page for honest reviews and pictures of happy, smiling Lithuanians :)
Price ranges from 5€ to 15€.
