Food menu & price

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€.

Vilnius TV Tower

The Vilnius TV Tower (Vilniaus televizijos bokštas) is the tallest structure in Lithuania, measuring 326.5 metres and is located in Karoliniškės, Vilnius. 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.
