Nice view

Good food, a good view, good service. I had a salad, which was delicious, and my husband ordered sea trout - we learned that it's about the same as salmon! A delicious surprise!

We decided to give this rooftop restaurant a try after reading about it in the Lonely Planet guide, and we were not disappointed. They have several reasonably priced half bottles of wine on their drinks menu- perfect for two people to split. In addition to a half bottle of white wine, we both ordered the sea trout, which was about... More

Quite well protected from the wind, it's a classy restaurant with excellent food. I will remember the deconstructed "Pavlova" I ate there!

Food was well cooked, vegetables ripeness was excellent. However the menu didn't include anything special, standard restaurant dishes. Service was good. The restaurant is on the roof but there is a view over the city only from a certain tables. Local people visit to the restaurant.

Don't bother going here - the view isn't very good, the food was barely eatable, and the wine list is expensive and unimpressive. And, the service could use some improvements.

This restaurant had been recommended. A great location with views over the city as the sun set near the longest day. Salads were top quality and the wine recommendation was excellent. Unfortunately while the main courses were OK we have certainly had better. Despite the restaurant being less than half full, the service was not up to the standard expected... 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.

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 fine as well. The food was nice and well... More

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...
