The food was fantastic and I’ve not seen similar dishes anywhere else. The service was also excellent. Good choice of local beers and interesting wine list. Located in a cellar with arch vaulted ceilings. Lots of old photographs but not all of Daugavpils or Latvia....More

Attracting decorations. The food itself average but you can have yourself quite full with that. Could be interesting for visitors from abroad.

Great variety of courses and the one which was served was very nice. Also they brew their own beer, which was pretty refreshing. Overall great place to eat in Daugavpils.
