“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Very few customers, however the decor was interesting and the place had a good ambiance, particularly when the musicians arrived. We were given prompt service and the food was tasty; if a little fatty. Price was reasonable too and the restaurant is set in the middle if the old town.

“Excellent food, friendly service, live band. Top marks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The band is so good that I only realised it was a band (and not a recording) when I had to pop downstairs. They really are very good. The setting is impressive and easy to find in the centre of Old City. The service could not possibly be faulted and the food is exceptional with quite a few adventurous offerings. Highly recommended.

“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.
