Senatorių Pasažas: Discover organic Lithuanian cuisine in the heart of Vilnius Old Town

Welcome to Senatorių Pasažas, a unique place in Vilnius Old Town that invites guests to explore Lithuanian cuisine and the freshest organic products around. Gastronomic experiences abound, so it’s time to get curious and start exploring!

Start your day off with a cup of coffee and a crispy pastry on a terrace, come for a nice lunch and grab some fresh vegetables, or explore the vast selection of savoury snacks and biodynamic wines for your evening at home. You can also get some exotic flowers or a minimalistic gift, and of course, invite a friend for an exclusive dinner at one of the two restaurants.

Discover the history behind the building

Senatorių Pasažas’ impressive building ensemble was constructed between the 17th and 19th  centuries, though older Gothic vaults can also be found there. The building has served multiple purposes over the centuries, including the house of the royal goldsmith, the Vainai Palace, the Pociejai Palace, and one of the first Lithuanian bookstores owned by Šlapeliai. Centuries ago, the building’s courtyard was used as a passage between Stiklių and Dominikonų streets, which were only separated by a brick wall. Today, the building is open to locals and guests alike, all of whom are invited to enjoy Senatorių Pasažas, a long courtyard lined with shops and restaurants offering organic food and contemporary Lithuanian cuisine.

Unforgettable dining experiences

Senatorių Pasažas is home to two restaurants – Nineteen18 and 14Horses – that cherish the farm-to-table concept.

An exclusive tasting dinner at Nineteen18

Get ready to be delighted by innovative flavours! Nineteen18 takes its name from the year Lithuania regained independence and thus symbolises a new start to contemporary Lithuanian cuisine aimed at bringing it to the future. You will be taken on a journey through the region’s rich culinary heritage to a contemporary interpretation of ethnographic themes.

The team is constantly looking to excite your taste buds, and do so by using local produce, foraging for exciting discoveries and preserving delicacies – it’s all a recipe for magic on your plate. The prestigious Scandinavian White Guide restaurant guide awarded Nineteen18 and head chef Matas Paulinas an impressive second place among the country’s top-30 restaurants.

Cosy brunch and dinner at 14Horses

Restaurant manager Benoit Chereque will greet you and immediately make an impression with his Parisian charm. The menu is filled with unexpected twists created by head chef Andrius Kubilius, who uses locally sourced products grown at the Farmers Circle farm. If you’re vegan, you’ll find some amazing choices on the à la carte menu – and to be sure, it’s not just salad. Your food will arrive in striking serveware that combines ancient traditions and modern needs. And get ready, because Saturday mornings are the happiest thanks to the restaurant’s long and lazy brunches.

Perfect gifts for you and your friends

Flowers are like friends; they bring colour to your world. So if you’re looking for some colour or want to surprise your friends, visit Gėlynas, a conceptual flower shop where the plants reflect the Lithuanian seasons.

For all the foodies, the Raidės bookstore is a paradise filled with cookbooks and publications about nature and sustainable lifestyles. Most of the books are in English and are carefully chosen by our chefs and other experts on the abovementioned topics.

Acknowledge the moment. If you’re looking for a gift or something to brighten up your interior, check out the Hygge home ware and interior shop. It's cosy, charming and offers special pieces that make for a convivial atmosphere promoting wellbeing.

Farmers Circle for environmental sustainability

A beautiful 500-hectare farm just an hour’s drive from Vilnius provides organic food and focuses on environmental sustainability. The zero miles concept guarantees freshness and quality. The fruit and vegetables, herbs, grass-fed Angus cattle and free-range chickens available at Senatorių Pasažas come from the Farmers Circle, so you can always be sure that the food you’re eating is of exceptional quality. The produce is seasonal, so there’s always something new to discover. The farm will soon open to the public and invite everyone to see how they grow their food.
