You'll agree that delicious food is the most important indicator of a good restaurant. Alongside it comes a stylish interior, a pleasant atmosphere, and professional service. However, there is one more element that adds even more charm to gourmet experiences: the view.

While travelling in foreign countries, we often seek restaurants located near the most beautiful city architectural landmarks or choose rooftop terraces offering breathtaking panoramas. So why should we change our priorities in Lithuania? Especially when Vilnius is so abundant in places that manage to astonish not only the city's guests but also its residents.

Hence, Tablein guide recommends restaurants in Vilnius that are worth visiting for all quality food enthusiasts who also want to observe the city from its most beautiful perspective.
