First, the good: Vecais Kapteinis is in an interesting old building in central Liepaja. There is a nice open-air seating area which is great for long summer evenings. My husband and I both ordered the buffet dinner - OK food and a large selection of salads, sides, mains, and desserts. Our drinks were fine. Now, the rest: our waitress flat-out... More

We went here for a birthday celebration. The staff were wonderful, the food plentiful and the ambience/ live music entertaining. We stayed all evening dancing and eating (there was so much food to try). Thanks for a wonderful evening.

It has been 4 years that we go there (everybody summer) and everybody year it's het worse. 4 years ago our best restaurant, this year was the last time. Only one simple exemple, apéritif Champagne was room temperature. Solution, Ice cubes... NOT!!! Tartare of salmon on balsamico. .. the thing was white of vinegar... a real deception

We chose this restaurant based on the critics on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is located between several streets, in an old house surrounded by modern area. The inside decoration is nicely old and cosy. The terrace is ok but has nothing special. We made the mistake to choose the "buffet" instead of the usual choice of meals in the menu.... More

We had a very enjoyable lunch here. Not too many people and also live music (not too loud at all) even during the day time. all the portions were delish and the price level is good. There was also an extensive buffet available but we ordered a la carte. Shady palce for a hot day. Recommended.
