“very nice food in a very cozy, neighborhood atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

I ordered a main from the vegetarian section of the menu as an appetizer (mostly because I knew it would not fill me up). It was the fried cheese and potatoes, which was totally delicious, flavorful, and very unique to me. As my main I ordered the grilled breast of chicken with spinach sauce. It was also very delicious. The food is nicely presented, nicely priced, and the GINGER TEA served here is quite nice. It's spicy and has a real kick because it's made with fresh grated ginger. This place is very relaxing and cozy, and a great place for a meal with friends or family.

“Friendly and warm”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Good place to have a nice meal next to a townhall. Situated in to the alley next to townhalls square, Skliautas served us good food without any tricks. Homefood made with the heart and very friendly service! Prices were more than decent.

“Quiet, friendly and very tasty”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We've chosen Skliautas for our only dinner in Kaunas for two main reasons: it is situated in the quiet alleyway, imho, much nicer than the noisy pedestrian street, and the food smells sounded promising. And it was exactly what I expected, may be even slightly better.
Huge portion of fresh salad, various snacks, fresh Belgian tap beer... Still "Volcano beef" is unbeatable.
Music is very, very nice. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. The child got some colour pencils to draw while we were waiting for food. Be prepared to spend a bit more time than expected: this place is relaxing.
The toilet needs some touch of renovation, but people are coming here to eat, right?
We payed with the credit card. Charged once.

“A Classic "Hidden Gem"”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

If I had read beforehand that this was maybe an arty, youth cafe then I would not have considered visiting for lunch. That would have been a big mistake.

Situated up an attractive alleyway off the Town Hall square in Old Kaunas, the Skliautas is fairly easy to miss, therefore it has had few reviews from diners, but if you seek it out, or come across it by chance like we did, then you are in for a treat.

I had fresh asparagus and cured ham with a jalepeno and sour cream sauce for starters. Very refereshing. The mains of chicken "chest" and pork "volcano" were excellent. Everything was cooked to perfection, including the accompanying veg. We shared a large portion of cottage cheese cake for dessert and had coffee and brandy to finish.

We also had a bottle of Old Tblisi wine and a bottle of water.

Service by the young waitress was relaxed yet attentive.

The bill was 112 Lt or about £26. Excellent value for the quantity and quality of we had.

Another big plus for the Skliautas is the music played. 80's pop or techno is the norm in Kuanas, but here we had French chansons then delta blues. The perfect accompaniments to a good meal on the terrace with a few drinks on a nice day.

“Youth caffe”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

If you are young, free and do not need very high standard - this is the right place to come. Watch the best sport events or just listening live music - its this place
