“Had dinner there two nights in a row”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Went to dinner there based on reviews that I had seen on Trip advisor in Australia and decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed at all. this restaurant has Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian meals, and all meals that we experienced were wonderful.

The experience was enhanced by the expertise by our wonderful waiter 'Konstantine' who was just wonderful.
The service and the food is great, the atmosphere is great, and considering this is probably one of the most expensive countries of the Baltic States, this is the best value restaurant that I have found in Latvia.
As I travel to the Baltics on a regular basis as Director of Baltic imports Australia, I will definitely be returning for konstantine's wonderful service and attention.

Keep up the good work Konstantine,

“Ok food, nothing special...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We went here because of the reiews here on tripadvisor, but I can't say that this restaurant was any special... The pasta dish I ate was pretty good, but the chicken my boyfriend had was dry and not something that he would eat again! Service was ok, but the waitress could have had a smile on her face, she looked bored.

“Lovely dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

In the centre of Riga, with a view of the House of the Blackheads, the restaurant it's really cute and the service excellent. Remarkable food for a reasonable price, an advice: take the fried garlic bread...simply awesome!

“Relaxing spot and interesting food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Tried this as a solo female traveller and was pleased to find that I was able to have a relaxing meal without any hassle. It specialises in Latvian food - try the Latvian Taster menu where you have small portions of a number of different Latvian specialities. Came back for a second evening meal so it must have been good!
A nice location just off one of the main squares.

“great restaurant in the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great service, very good food of Estonian tradition. If you are visiting Riga, and you are near the House of Blackheads, you could have dinner in this restaurant. Definitely recommended!
