“A novel experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The restaurant is named after a well known Latvian novel But we didn't know that and had puzzled over the name. The decor is simple with clean straight lines. Tables are set outside and on two levels inside. We both had fish dishes which were cooked to order and were delicious. The service was pleasant and efficient but unhurried and fairly priced considering it is on one of the main streets in the Old Town. We would return.
