The trend for Kaunas’ dining scene seems to be sizeable grills and burgers. Virtually every restaurant, it seems, does its own gourmet-style house burger, while ribs, shashlik kebabs and local lamb are often on the menu at places of every description. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but standards vary. In the following pages we try to list the city’s best restaurants.
In any case, the spectrum of dining choices continues to improve in Kaunas and there really are some enjoyable (if not exactly top class) restaurants around, many of which offer a ridiculously good price-quality ratio.

The figures in brackets at the end of each of our reviews denote the checked price of an average main course on the menu.
The opening hours we list tend to be flexible in that these are the hours the venue has told us you can expect the chef to be working. Occasionally the chef leaves an hour or so before closing time, leaving the glass-clinking, late-evening atmosphere to continue, and in these cases we highlight it in the review. If business is slow out of the busy summer season, restaurants may shut early.
