Nice terrasse

Nice and spacious terrasse with fine food and service. We went there for a coffee and decided to try their restaurant another day and made a reservation. However, when we arrived they'd forgotten all about our reservation and the specific table we wished for. However, we got another table which was... read more

Great location, but the rooms look like they need a makeover. The food is geared more to the Eastern European palate, not much for British taste.

Great view if you can get table near edge. HOWEVER, I arrived on Wednesday at 7:15pm and I'd say half the tables on the edge were "reserved". But when I left at 9pm, most of these tables were still unused. Something fishy going on... like maybe 5 Euros for the good tables or what? So, just beware you will probably... More

If I checked the place to view the view of the old city from the 5th floor, I'd rank it a 4 (there is very pretty view of Daugava and the Dome tower and the cityscape if you sit at certain places; when the terrace is packed, you don't get a view, unless you want to disturb other visitors); but...

Great roof terrace location and an impressive lunch menus ranging from sandwiches to full meals and with an impressive winelist. My steakwich was fine, but my wife's avocado, prawn and mango salad included only a quarter of an avocado, 3 prawns and one slice of mango, which seemed a bit stingy for over 10 euros.

This is a nice rooftop restaurant. If you sit on the right side of the roof there's a great view of the coast. The waiters are friendly, speak English well, but expect tips if they can see you are American. The food was delicious, especially the crème brûlée. It is also in a nice area in town, quiet and safe.... More

The top floor terrace is large and has a grand view of Riga. It was a lively place during our visit, as a large group gathered at the bar for some kind of celebration. Service was informal, friendly, but slow. Our salmons and Dorado were fine, and we found a good Chablis in the extensive wine list, but the desserts... More

This is a great setting - up on the 5th floor roof terrace of the hotel you are literally sitting amongst the spires of Riga. There are blankets and heaters on hand if it gets a wee little bit chilly. We selected this restaurant as it was reviewed in Lonely Planet as being "Top End". That it is. The food... More
