This restaurant is outstanding in all terms. Our waiter was a pure joy and was extremely helpful. Menu is not very long, but selection is fantastic. As a welcome from the chef we were offered beef tartar - delicious! As a starter I had tuna tartar, as a main - braised goose leg and creme brûlée to crown the feast.... More

What an excellent place this was, simply amazing! We decided to try the tasting menu and were not disappointed. The whole experience was perfect, food and wine wonderful and the service very friendly. The sommelier was exceptional. Amazing wine choices! Some of the best wines that we have ever tasted (and that is a lot). Highly recommended if you are... More

One of the reasons why I really like this place is not only the food or lovely interior but the wine menu as this is the place where I for the first time tasted my absolutely favorite wine in the world.

We went with a group of 8, and did the tasting menu. I am a vegetarian and they were more than accommodating to adjust mine, without compromising the meat aspect for the group. The atmosphere/ambiance was very scenic and romantic as well. Every course of the five-course tasting menu was outstanding and the waitress' knowledge of each item was very... More

Food excellent as well as service and the rest, but it is not cheap, I would say expensive, however you get adequate service and the level of food is top level

Visited this restaurant in December of 2014 while on holiday for New Year. There is a lot to like about this restaurant. The service was exceptional for a start. We were made to feel very welcome and the waiting staff served us quickly and efficiently, but without being overbearing. The décor was also good, although we were round the corner... More

Top level restaurant in the center of Riga. Great dishes and, what is very important, sommelier Janis will offer You the most appropriate wine to the chosen dish. For sure - ask Janis!

I went there with my family the day after Christmas. To be honest with you I was very disappointed with what we encountered. Welcome was fine however once we sat down we were not presented with the wine list together with the food menu. Once served bread with butter, butter was very hard almost I spreadable which is completely un... More
