“the best place to stay and eat in rural latvia- yet not far from riga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

This wonderfully welcoming restored manor house, complete with Gizmo the errant dog, wasjust the homeliest upmarket stay.The chef is enthusiastic, yet relaxed and very creative, the staff helpful and delightful, the room perfect and the whole house is evocative of a bygone stately era. Set in rural grounds with gardens of flowers, herbs and veges, it was the perfect way to unwind after a tiring 2 weeks. I can only highly recommend everything about this place and can't wait to come back one day.
Trip Advisor - please note this should be in the accommodation section as well please!

“dinner at a restored manor house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2008

We would have never discovered this gem of a restaurant without our friends from Riga. But we're so glad we did. You'll definitely need a good map as well - even better - don't come just for dinner, reserve a room and make a day and night of it.
This amazingly restored manor house is about an hour west of Riga on a beautiful small lake, surrounded by country gardens. The meal was amazing - delicious and served by a wonderful narrative. Whatever is on the menu, you'll enjoy it and the staff. Make sure to allow enough time to tour the grounds before dinner, and the public rooms of the house. And if you ask very nicely, see if you can see a few of the other guest rooms - each one is very unique and wonderfully decorated. We wanted to stay in each one!
This was one of the most magical dinners we've ever had, here or abroad. If you're in Riga for more than a night, try your best to schedule a trip out to Kuksu.
