Editor's review

This traditional Lithuanian restaurant, seemingly buried inside an ancient catacomb, has more ambiance and trappings than you'll be able to enjoy in one visit. Each of its labyrinthine appendages is exquisitely adorned with medieval ornaments and decor to the point where you'd expect gents in tights and feathered caps to saunter in and draw their swords on you. Ideal for large groups, the menu features sampler dishes so you and your party won't miss a single savory Lithuanian potato creation, and also includes such over-the-top Lithuanian offerings as roast pig on a spit, wild boar, rabbit, and a half-metre of eel. Beer can be drank out of a stein, pitcher, or a tower with its own tap at your table; but you may feel obliged to slurp some mead with your pig parts. Or how about 'burning moonshine' (ten shots ablaze) or a 'Samogitians iceberg' (bottle of liquor in a block of ice) to stave off sobriety? Though on the pricey side, Zemaiciai pulls out all the stops to convince you you've gone back in time. Even if you're not eating, a wander around the interior is worthwhile.

I went there to check for Zepelins. They were OK but I have tasted better around. It's a decent place worth a try.
