“Divine food and very calm atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Before I visit this restrain I feel a lack of Medieval spirit in Latvia. But here I found it! All the details is great and styled, location just in front of Dome, the food is much more tasty than I expected. I can even name it divine. In short I would like to recommend this place for all visitors! BTW the prices is not highest having in mind the value you can get here.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Riga is not to be missed, but especially this fine restaurant right in the heart of old town. There were four of us so we had four starters which we shared--including anchovies and smoked salmon. Followed by authentic Latvian dishes, accompanied by a Chilean red wine. The service was excellent and the price was incredibly reasonable for a restaurant of this type. The menu is extensive and includes both Latvian and international dishes. Don't be put off by the fact that it is in the tourist area.

“The schnitzel was excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I didn't like the look of the other dishes but my wife and I had the pork schnitzel with seasonal vegetables and it was cooked with a very light hand. The beer was cold, the view was excellent and the meal was reasonably priced. Good for a tourist restaurant.

“I didn't the reviews first”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Well it's my fault, all the reviews were right on the money. They don't expect you to return, the pork knucke could pave roads, we had to change tables because of music, and the waitress was rude. Positive, nice tables, chairs, and an interesting menu. Perhaps there are things on it they can cook.

“Typical place in Riga”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Nice typical place near the cathedrale of Riga. The terrasse is directly on the street so a little noisy. The food is very good and typical (prok, duck, salmon...). The prices are correct for this quality and weel served. The staff is efficient but there was very few people in the restaurant... so it is difficult to judge.
