Nice place

Cute restaurant in the city centre of Riga! The food is very nice, but quite expensive. The staff is friendly and open to answer your questions about the restaurant or the city!

Very beautiful old town building, nice interior and great staff. I expected higher quality food for that price level but it was good anyway. I recommend the place.

Cozy restaurant in the old city with classic wooden décor and a classic menu. Service was attentive and dishes were well prepared.

Food was ok, but not good value for money. In this price range you will find much better options elsewhere. Would recommend one of the Lido's way over this.

We have been returning to this place again and again. The menu is full of game dishes like wild pigeon or beaver and everything tastes just great. Very cosy atmosphere in historic building in Old City. Highly recommend!

This is very cute, cozy and authentic restaurant in Riga. Food is amazing and they have very good selection of different kind of meats. It was probably the best duck confit ate in a while! Staff and service was great too!

1221 is a nice local restaurant. Very well funished in a traditional style. The staff is nice and I enjoyed the food. It's a little bit expensive, but I shouldn't expect to pay less for that kind of service.

A relaxing laid-back atmosphere, excellent discrete service and an interesting menu. If you like game and if you like rich meat dishes combined with fruit, as I do, then this is the place for you. I had the smoked beaver meat starter which was rather substantial as an appetiser but as I had never had beaver before I had to... More
