Interesting menu, great starters.

We had a light lunch comprised of a few starters there and it was fabulous. I wish we had eaten dinner there as well. The menu was varied and the service okay.

Good food and excellent service. Perfect location inside the Old Riga, small resturant very nice. I was there in summer and it was very lovely to eat outside at lunch. Quite expensive if compared with the city average prices.

An elegant Italian style restaurant with very good location in the old city. The service was good, however not so fast although we were almost only customers in the restaurant. The food was very delicious, but also quite expensive compared to local Riga prices.

I discovered the place here, at TripAdvisor, right before going to Riga. We were not disappointed. The food was delicate and tasty. The service was friendly and professional, and the prices were not so bad either. What else can we expect from a restaurant?

Great atmosphere and service, but best of all, great food. Rooted in local specialities. Unusual and very delicious. Rounded off with the restaurant's own blackcurrant balsam liqueur.

Quaint restaurant and excellent food. We went for lunch but I think it would be better for dinner. It is across the street from The Neiburgs Hotel.

We ate here three times during our stay and each time it was wonderful. This restaurant is the entire building. It is about four ( maybe 5) stories high with a roof top as well, all connected by a whimsical wooden staircase. You have to enjoy climbing a bit and if you don't you can stay on the first floor...

Ate dinner at this restaurant and the food was interesting, perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. There is an adequate wine list, service is good and prices are sensible. If you sit outside it's also a great people watching spot. It was a most enjoyable meal.

This place was recommended by our hotel and we ended up having a very good dinner here. My wife had a nice chicken dish and I enjoyed my pork knuckle. We both liked the wines we chose as well. The service was perhaps not the best possible -- there were long stretches when no one was around -- but they... More
