“Relax by the river”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Kavine for lunch on a HOT day so it was nice to sit out by the river. Had cold beet root soup - very tasty and refreshing. Followed by Greek salad and salmon salad. Delicious. Tomas, our waiter polite and professional - all orders by memory.

“Gorgeous location”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

I visited this place always when in Vilnius. First time it eas in 2008, last time this summer. I really like this place but I am afraid that it was not my last visit. The prices are going up and the genius loci of Uzupis republic is vanishing away as well. Maybe during the evenings the atmosphere is different, but for lunch it is only touristic place. On the other hand I understand it, as the location above the river is fantastic and the prices are similar as in the Vilnius Old Town.
My saltibarscaj (cold beet rootsoup) was good, but I had much bater one for better price later at some other place. I was missing more from delicious lithuanian cuisine, as pirato pancakes. Give it a try, but mainly for the location itself.

Thank Tabinka

“Good prices, delicious dishes”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

During our stay in vilnius we visited Uzupio Kavine 2 times.
They offer several traditional dishes and some fingerfood. They've also got tasty Lithuanian beers. The prices are good.

“Average food with little atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

The place looked very inviting from the outside with the nice terrace along the river. We had lunch there and were not thrilled by the quality of the food. The dishes looked well on the menu but lacked taste and depth. Most expensive meal we had in Vilnius but unfortunately not convincing

“Not so 'Alternative' but should be on the list.”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We called in here for lunch and a beer on New Year's Day after exploring the republic. It was cold outside but the reception and atmosphere were warm and welcoming. The food and beer were tasty and good value - spicy beef stew and a wheat beer always work for me in winter.
The place was busy with groups, families and couples and we were lucky to get a seat because it's clearly on many people's tick list. The staff were efficient if a little impatient but knowing what you want helps. The staff were also very capable in dealing with English, Russian, Belorussian, German and Lithuanian so you can't help but admire their abilities.
It may not be the alternative centre of bohemian culture that some guide books might lead you to believe but I thought the location, menu, beer and atmosphere were all worth the visit.
