We nearly didn't go as I was feeling a bit unwell that evening and couldn't face going out, I am so glad I did as the food was outstanding. It was honestly the best steak we have ever ever had.

Had a lovely meal here, the food was beautifully cooked and the staff were great. Only thing I would say is that everything has to be separately added. I had the mackerel with poached apple and that was it. No potatoes, nor vegetables served. For the price I thought this was a bit steep. But nevertheless would definitely return to... More

My favorite place when it comes to Riga's Old Town. Cute, cozy and yummy! The rooftop terrace is lovely in summer and is never too busy. Perfect for a quiet intimate dinner!

The atmosphere is charming. The food is amazing and staff is super attentive and professional. If you are just one day in Riga and choosing the best place for lunch/dinner - don't hesitate, visit this place! And try venison! it's a die for dish!

I had seen the sturgeon and salmon borsch on the menu and really wanted to try it - it was brilliant although very light and delicate the fish shone through. My wife had the goulash soup which was a meal in itself and very good. Service was polite and professional and a nice touch to be offered a small stand... More

We booked in for dinner on New Years Eve a couple of months before. We paid 100 euros up front which we thought was just a premium price to attend the restaurant on New Years Eve. It is a beautiful latvian restaurant and when we arrived we were told we had 400 euros to spend on anything off the menu... More
