We visit restaurants all over Lithuania and try to recommend only the places worth visiting. Our goal is not to criticize or provide some bias opinion but more to discover and give recommendations or ideas for brekafast, brunch, lucn or dinner. We are aiming to visit not only new places, but to re-vist legendary places and check their changes as well. Moreover, we are not interested only in fine and trendy dining and Instagram dishes, but also looking for tradional or budget food.
Over the past few years we have discovered a multitude of Delicious places. And try to spread the word that Lithuania in growing epicenter of gastronomic experience in Europe.
We hope to inspire you to go and dine out, to show that in Lithuania we have alomost everything and that foreigner guests who visit our country will be pleasantly surprised by quality of the food and resturants here.
Our vision is not to critique restaurants, trying to find out what was wrong. But to discover the positive aspects, discover the places that we really can recommend to locals or food guests. Indeed, there are a lot of inquiries from the latter, so we really understand that while we have so many impressive places in Lithuania – information on this, especially in English, is really lacking.

Our friendly writer at the website where2eat.lt Julia Kačanova in a new show “Check” shares reviews from the most interesting catering establishments.
The first visit is to the recently opened “Uptown Bazaar”, the first food market in Lithuania, which houses dozens of cafes under one roof. We will try “Acai bawl,” which are now very fashionable abroad. Also try a Berlin schnitzel and last but not least she will taste a hot dog with … herring. Let’s find out how she rated three different cafes!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, have ideas for our cooperation or are interested in our visit to your restaurants. NOTE: this is not a commercial project and advertising can not be provided but we are always open to interesting projects together and finding out about new places or dishes.
