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...

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,...

Great food and atmosphere, an acoustic guitarist was playing the evening we visited which we very much appreciated. Service was flawless, though you'd expect that given the price compared to other local prices. We had a slightly strange experience whilst booking a table here though... First my boyfriend called from Latvian sim he had bought for our journey and asked... More

Wonderful menù, originally reinterprets the traditional Baltic ingredients. Each bite is a pure joy to the palate, from the starters to the honey ice whiskey and to coffee! Liver mousse/ice cream, beetroot gel, red deer tartare, fish, desserts- we chose to have a tasting menù so as to get to try a bit of everything and we didn't regret! would... More
