This restaurant is very well located , has an elaborate menu , an excellent service , a very interesting atmosphere and is expecting the customer to pay for it ! So if you want to taste the best of the regional cuisine ,this is the place : but there is a price for it !

This is a nice traditional looking Latvian cuisine restaurant. Its located near the main square and the prices reflect this as its the high end of the average for good food. Food was good and staff friendly and spoke good English.

This restaurant has true Latvian food, but everyone spoke excellent English. In our group of four, we had four different dinners and they were all excellent. Service is a little slow, but that was so as to not rush us through dinner. We ate inside, but they do have outside seating.
