There was no need for restoration – here every brick reminded about quiet and calm XIX century, and we had no wish to change anything in earnest. We have only expanded the subsidiary lodgments, decorated interior by antiquarians, and created small museum of antique things in the hall.
The restaurant was built in 1856 on the burnt foundation after the Great Fire in Memel in 1854. Restaurant is an architectural monument and is guarded by the state.
Now “Stora Antis” in Klaipeda is a small restaurant in the very centre of an old town, on Tiltu street, 6. It slightly reminds of a shop of antiques, a little bit of museum, and also of a club for variety stars, politicians and businessmen. But the most important is our qualitative cuisine.
In the "Stora Antis" dined Mireille Mathieu ,Toto Cutugno,"Smokie","Tower of Power", "Incognito", "Eath, Wind & Fire'', "ELO"," Mezzoforte ", Candy Dulfer. .. and almost all the stars of Lithuanian and Russian music, theater and cinema.
Your spirit will be raised by properly served wine or vodka, quite music, tea drinking from copper samovar in the candle light, menu and service in 4 languages, and antiquarians. All the exhibits around are functioning. The one may hear the sounding of gramophone in the evenings, see the candlesticks of the XIX century on the tables, and enjoy the champagne that will be served in the antique copper ice bucket.
We are always happy to see you in our restaurant, and we would especially appreciate if you would write us about our shortcomings. We promise to correct all the mistakes immediately. Tables and dishes reservations by telephone:
