Good food, service, beer and price

Went for lunch on our final day and wanted to try something local. The dumplings were on the menu but not the same as the dumplings you get in some countries, these were more like gnocchi. Still tasty. Nice décor and service. We did get our photo in 2 days of returning home. Thanks

Really wanted to try authentic Latvian cuisine during my stay in Riga and this restaurant was recommended. Loved the decor etc. I opted for the Latvian Cuisine Tasting Menu for 26 euros which involves 5 courses. All of them arrived promptly, were freshly prepared and tasted delicious. However, the portion sizes were probably the tiniest I have ever been served... More

Last week I was in Riga with three friends of mine. We decided to give this restaurant a try and went in to see if they had a table for four available. Since we didn't have a reservation and the place is small, they didn't - absolutely no problem with that. But. The waitress looks at us and says: "You... More

The food, atmosphere and staff were all great. It wasn't as pricey as some of the places nearby. Would definitely recommend a stop here.

The staff did their utmost to make our final evening in Riga memorable. The food was delicious, the drink also, but best was yet the hospitality! I can warmly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

A small restaurant with a surprising atmosphere. If you are looking for something traditional this is the place to go. The service is fast and people are friendly. The food is very good although the portions are quite small. Since the restaurant is small, it is necessary to come early or to reserve a table in advance. It is quite... More

The menu is easy to read with multiple languages, their waitresses were very nice, especially that one has ballerina looking she smiles all the time. Our dinner started with Herring potato salad, Pork cabbage soup, for mains, fish cakes, Beef Stroganoff, all very... More

excellent Latvian food at sensible prices. Good menu with plenty of choice - I had rabbit for a main course as I wanted something authentic (superb) and also had the Latvian black balm (not so good). Located in the centre of town and makes a big change from getting ripped off.
