It’s not easy to say what the best restaurant in Vilnius is, because it’s literally and metaphorically a matter of taste. Here’s a few favourite—if somewhat subjective—dining options in Vilnius to get you started.
For some of the best Georgian food around, it’s hard to beat Achtamar. Not located in the centre of Vilnius, it's more than worth the trip to eat here.
For a city once known as the Jerusalem of the North, it’s somewhat disconcerting to discover the lack of Jewish cuisine in the Lithuanian capital. All’s not lost however, as the recommended bagel spot Beigelių Krautuvėlė inside the headquarters of the Lithuanian Jewish Community makes the most authentic Jewish food in Vilnius.
The best fast food in Vilnius can be found at the Downtown Food Hall. These fantastic little gourmet kitchens churn out everything from some of the best burgers in Vilnius to magnificent fish and chips.
And then of course there’s Lithuanian cuisine. For the best local food in Vilnius, two options are really worth checking out. Etno Dvaras is a classic Lithuanian restaurant in the heart of OldTown serving recommended cepelinai and other traditional Lithuanian food. For the modern gourmet experience, try Sweet Root, a top Lithuanian restaurant in the breakaway republic of Užupis.
