As an American Latvian, it's really hard to find anything in Riga worth going out for.. Home is always the best. But this was the exception. Māja was not only great food, but the name says it all.. Hone. It felt and tasted great. I commend the owners for maintaining the integrity of the space and the history. Knowing the... More

I love this place, the good was really tasty and the service very friendly. While waiting we were offered complementary snacks (button mushrooms stuffed with cheese) and they were delicious. I had deer ravioli which was excellent. Going back soon

We were invited there for dinner. Was impressed by most of what I ate there. Good service. Restaurant is located in an actual wooden home that has been fixed up. Worth checking out!

Not the easiest place to find, but well worth the effort. Fantastic food, innovative and beautifully presented at a fair price. Helpful and enthusiastic staff and a charming atmosphere.

It is a while since I ate such excellent food all presented without fuss, all beautifully cooked and aesthetically presented. Escargot presented on a timber board surrounded by some tasty green leaves, perch grilled to perfection with just the right amount of delicious vegetables, an amazing pear/ice cream dessert. It was simply perfect. I hope I can make it back.

We went to explore the other side of Riga, crossing Daugava river and getting out a little bit from old city for new views. It it a cool place for trendy, hipster styled Latvians and together with the market on Saturdays worthy to visit. Place is nice, they have a summer terrace, but inside is also very cousy and because... More

We had lunch on the summer terrace. No decorations outside. You get the atmosphere because of the market which is next to the restaurant and which is worth the visit if you happen to be in Riga. The food was ok. But there are many ok places in Riga. The stuff was friendly and the service was quick. So....do visit... More

there is not much to see out here, on this side of Riga. The few wooden houses, advertised as touristic highlight, are hardly worth the trip, as there are many more and nicer even in the tourist resort of Jurmala. But if ever you decide still to make it out here, this is the stop for lunch. Located in a... More

First, the good: "Maja" is located in a trendy area of Riga where there you can see many surviving traditional wood houses. The menu is interesting and somewhat eclectic. My venison ravioli was very good, as was the bread (served with herb butter). However, there was no wine list, so diners had to rely on the servers to recommend a... More
