We spent New Years Eve 2014/15 in this Restaurant and it was wonderful! The food was delicious and they made everything possible for us as vegans. The program was excellent and the staff fantastic and very nice.

Perfect place for Wednesday's girls night out. Tasty cocktails and amazingly good desserts, but the best is the restaurant personnel.

Walking around Old Riga, we were searching a place with some extraordinary cocktail’s menu – and this place was it! Service, atmosphere, drinks – they all were at a really high level! Cocktails were fancy, delicious, unusual – everything that we were looking for. And our waiter was a real gent! I would highly recommend this place!

If you want to hang out and have a really good cocktail. This is your spot! This place is awesome, it has: cool music, good bartenders, great ambiance. Basically everything you want in a late night spot if you are over 25. I really recommend some of their balzam cocktails just to try it out once. Also, this place has... More
