“Great service and presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Great location, historical building, nice live saxophone music by an old local, great presentation and good choice of food, although mostly meat dishes. Let the waiters help you choose, wont be dissapointed. The smoke presentation is also quite unique at the begining and the end. Not cheap, but worth it.

“A very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We came here only for drinks, looking for a quiet place (the other terraces on Livu Laukums being very noisy late at night).
A good place with the most excellent service, we had during our Riga city trip. Excellent staff!
Sincerely recommended.

“Great Inventive World-class Chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Chef Andrei Kudravets is an exceptional young star who brings a range of inventive dishes based on traditional Latvian cuisine including variations on old family recipes. Only the best freshest ingredients are used. Every dish from starter to desserts is an artistic work and taste treat. Although on one of the main squares in the well-know Black Cat House building, don't let the touristy surroundings keep you from dining here. Ask "maestro" Kudravets for his suggestions for your meal. You will not be disappointed. There are also many special touches and courtesies extended to guests in the way of drinks etc. This young chef is headed for Michelin star restaurants elsewhere in Europe I am certain.

“A fairly good choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The ambience and service is good. I ordered biz lunch, included fish soup, chicken as main course and coffee. The food is a little bit slow, but tastes well. My husband is quite satisfied with pork. And don't miss the apple pie, very yummy! In all, a fairly good choice!

“Good place in old-town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Good place, good food, good location. A little bit too slow service. Good place to have a meal on a regular day but rather not for a special ocasion.
