A party of four enjoyed original Lithuanian dishes on a Sunday afternoon in April. We shared Tyrsriube su arybais, Kepti elnienos malting, Bulviniai blynai su san, and Ranku darb. virtue cold. Even though they had an English menu, I am afraid you will have to Goggle translate to find out exactly what they were. But, all were excellent and the... More

We ordered four different dishes and a desert and liked some of our food. We tried the potato zeppelins they were very good - highly recommend to try them out. The mushroom soup in a bread bowl was lacking in flavor and the bread was stale. The duck was good but a bit overcooked. They charge for the water from... More

Went to Forto Dvaras wanting to taste some real localt food - zeppelins etc. They have very long menu - seems that you can have everything there, BUT - food lacks taste, it's absolutely average or even worse. Service is also something they should work on.

We were recommended this restaurant by locals. From the look of the exterior we wouldn't have given it a try as it doesn't look impressive. Inside, it's decorated in a 'folksy' way with fake thatched roofing and timber. The menu helpfully shows photos of the dishes and is fairly easy to use. We were recommended to try 'zeppelins' – a...

We went there for a quick dinner, place is really smelly and uncosy, food was average quality, heated in microwave, pork was oily and looked several times heated! Overall, really too much attention for this place from tourist side, low atmosphere, food quality, wouldn't recommend! But cheap prices!

We enjoyed our light meal. The apple coffee was unique. We preferred eating downstairs in the bricked rooms. Nice atmosphere. The restaurant was recommended by one of our Vilnius friends, but another said it was too much geared towards tourists. As we were tourists, this was fine with us.

Recommended to us as one of the places to get typical Lithuanian food at a great cost, we were very pleased. Great food, really inexpensive and everything to offer. Would definitely return.

FORTO DVARAS was the first restaurant in Lithuania to offer certified meals from the Gastronomic Heritage Foundation. These are meals made in the traditional way, using products of local origin. You can hear Lithuanian music playing in a cosy atmosphere of an old estate, decorated with elements of the old graphics and pictures from authentic books.
