“Oleg, I salute you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Stumbled on this place entirely by accident. Ended up having lunch and several beers (of which they have a fantastic selection- both local and imported), all of which were recommended to us by the waiter, who I think was called Oleg. He was extremely enthusiastic about his workplace and about Riga, and ended up giving us a number of suggestions for our short stay. We had traditional Latvian garlic bread, which is an absolute must-try if you like to eat things- aside from this, the food was really nothing special, but the experience was made excellent by the great service we received and lovely atmosphere. We came back a few days later and had chocolate cake, which was nothing short of divine.
Also, they have a terrapin in a tank upstairs.

“Avoid at all cost!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We just came out from this disgusting joint and feel so much relieved that we are OUT!
The atmosphere is weird, the waiter is sneaky and the food is bad.
Please avoid at all cost!

“Great food and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We went here a couple of times and each time we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and plentiful. The chefs cake was gorgeous. The cranberry beer was lovely too. If you visit here you will not be disappointed!!

This had the widest selection of beers we had come across. The prices were very good and the food reasonable. Staff were very friendly.

“Very good beer sortiment - some rare brands - but don't take ceasar salad:-)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I found the excellent tasting Brengulu alus = beer here, NICE. It's worth of trying, both dark one and light one. Didn' want to eat heavily - ordered caesar salad with grilled chicken - got some kind of salad with bacon. Where was the parmesan and romaine salad? This is maybe a very good place to taste beers but I will not eat here next time. Wrong dish was failure of young waitress who actually did ask me twice if I ordered caesar salad with chicken:-)
