Restaurant Neringa is a culinary legend of Vilnius. It is said that this is the oldest operating restaurant in Vilnius. It was opened in 1959 and is very famous among locals to this day.
At the time when Neringa was opened it was the most luxurious restaurant in Vilnius. Its interior was designed by the most famous architects, artists and muralists in Vilnius. To this day, the interior remains unchanged and since 1970 is listed among the “State Protected Monuments of Lithuanian Architecture”.
This restaurant, since the very first day, was a gathering place for Vilnius bohema and intellectuals. The elder generation locals still remember that philosophical and cultural debates were always in full swing in Neringa. It was not just a restaurant; it was a remarkable part of the culture.
These days Neringa is still an exceptional restaurant. Everyone sure knows the history behind it. However, to the vast majority of locals Neringa is known for chicken “Kiev” cutlet, which has been on Neringa’s menu since the very opening, and probably is the best chicken Kiev cutlet in Vilnius to this day. Neringa is an ideal place for a lazy yet fancy Sunday lunch with your parents or grandparents.
