This was my first taste of Latvian cooking. I didn't know what to expect from Eastern European cooking, so I gave it a try. Around mid day my employer informed the restaurant that I'm a vegan, so the restaurant didn't have a lot of time to prepare. I don't know if they had a vegan meal on the menu or... More

Nice interior. Excellent food and the best selection of wine that I have come across in Riga. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it!

The food was good. Wine service: disastrous. For the following reasons: (1) No list for wines by the glass. I was offered a Gavi (italian white wine), but I was not told the price. That means: The owner fixes the price as he wants. (2) The quantity was just 100 ml. So I had a glass of wine in front... More

Grand but very pleasant and modern restaurant with a great location in the gardens of the opera house, nice teracce, excellent service and superb cuisine. Expensive but worth it.

After having read a lot of positive reviews, I decided to try their Sunday brunch. We were seated on the terrasse overlooking the park, which vas very nice. The waiters were professional and serviceminded and the buffet looked nice with both Asian and European dishes. The food was well prepared and you could have pancakes and omelets made on order.

A reasonably good restaurant with stylish décor. The menu is international with dishes to suit most tastes but the service was far too rushed. Our waitress kept clearing the plates away as soon as one of us had finished even though the other person was still eating. There was no gap between courses and we had probably finished our main...

Chef de Cuisines have figure out remarkable menu. This time I ate avocado mousse with gout cheese sorbet, grapefruit gel, oven baked beets and pine nuts, also offered special main... More

Be warned that In the last few weeks the price of brunch has increased 75% to a whopping 35 euro per person, without coffee or juices. Brunch with two coffees and a juice (neither are included in the brunch price) will cost around 50 euro per person. One mystery aperitif included in the price, though. Drinks are on the high-end,...
