In the centre of Vilnius Old Town, Restaurant Telegrafas is the place for those seeking an elegant dining atmosphere with incredible European gastronomy, offering a subtle balance between history and modernity with a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the picturesque Vilnius Cathedral Square.
Since 1948, the building of Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square was used as a central telegraph. After a thorough renovation, the restaurant kept its ties to the history of Vilnius with the name of Restaurant Telegrafas and its visible defence wall, while also bringing in a new style, portraying an elegant and refined atmosphere. It is a balance between the old and the new.
The cuisine is characterized by a combination of European cooking, veering from East to West with Mediterranean touches. Here, purity and simplicity are complemented with refinement and surprising combinations. Dishes are always made with special attention to freshness and seasonal ingredients. Restaurant Telegrafas would like to play an instrumental role in modernising traditional Lithuanian cuisine. As a result, guests can expect innovative menus influenced from specialties both local and from around the world.
The stylish interior design is a combination of aesthetics and natural earthy elements, such as stone, wood and metal. A seductive mix of modern lines and surfaces with classic elements – wooden flooring, veneziano plastering and a visible defence wall – are visible. Wherever you are sitting, either at the tables by the window overlooking Cathedral Square, or in more private dining set ups, the atmosphere is welcoming and caring.
