I would recommend Roe-Deer Tenderloin Carpaccio and delicious Duck Breast with Cranberry Sorbet. I met Arvydas Sabonis in this retaurant.

The name of this place can be translated as "hunter's tavern", and it definitely delivers in this aspect. The menu is loaded with meat dishes of all sorts, running the gamut from elk, roe deer, wild boar, and even beaver. If game is not your thing, there are also plenty of traditional choices, including steaks, and pork "shashlik" (traditional marinated and skewered chunks of pork grilled over an open flame). As a foreigner living in Kaunas, I have probably eaten at this restaurant at least 50 times, and I have never had a bad experience with the food. You basically cannot go wrong with anything on the "wild game" menu. The steaks are decent for Lithuanian standards, but nothing incredible. One thing that you absolutely must try is the mushroom (or "boletus") soup. It is absolutely fantastic here, especially on a cold day. This is possibly the best soup I have tried in Lithuania (a country with fantastic soup, in general). I should add that there are VERY few choices on this menu for vegetarians.

Decor is quite a trip. Taxidermy, hunting knives, and hunting trophies abound, and there is a massive fireplace that roars through the cold Kaunas winters, keeping the place quite cozy. In the summer, a huge terrace opens up in front of the restaurant, taking up a good chunk of the picturesque Kaunas old-town square. You can also sit outside directly in front of the restaurant, and they have (very nicely appointed) private rooms for large parties.

Service varies greatly, depending on which waiter or waitress you get. In general, it is slightly above average for Kaunas. One drawback to this restaurant is the wine selection. While the restaurant offers decent wines by the bottle, the limited selection of wine by the glass (reds at least) is terrible. This is a shame if you would like to enjoy a red wine with your game course, but don't want to down an entire bottle.

All in all, this is still a great place to visit if you in Kaunas, especially if you have never tried the local forest wild game. The fantastic porch in the summer is also a huge plus. I always bring friends from abroad here when they come to Lithuania, and they always have a great time.

The name sounds Hunters Tavern and you can realy test some wild animals meat but its just it - you will need more warm approach from waiters not only "standard" service

We were eating outside in the restaurants tent in the square. That atmosphere was great, but deliver of the appetizer took about an hour. Spinach salad was drowned in dressing and cheese plate was poor, so we desided to continue our dinner elsewhere. Red wine was great though.

I was really disaponted: the quality of the food was bad. The meat, medaillons (Jautienos karpac... 34,00 €) was over cooked, grey and hardy.
