“Vista puode” means chicken in the pot.” The owner of the restaurant serves food that he enjoyed during his childhood days. The restaurant is separated into three areas but connected by one kitchen. Svetainė (the living room) serves breakfast, Traktierius (the tavern) serves lunch and snacks, and Restoranas (the restaurant) is a space dedicated for special occasions and dinners.
I dined in the living room as the tavern was full during lunch. The place had an inviting, bright, and rustic interior with interesting decorations.
The table mat has the history of the name of the restaurant and some local food, so you can have a read while waiting for the food.
I had just arrived in Kaunas, and it was quite a cold day. The soup was perfect, it tasted like grandmother’s homemade chicken soup. The chicken cutlet was tender and juicy, and the potato puree was very flavorful.
Other than the slow service, the food was delicious. This is a restaurant worth checking out if you are in the area.
Slow-cooked chicken broth €2.50
Chicken cutlet with soft cheese served with potato puree €6. 40
