This place is really cosy and the staff is really helpful. You don't get very much food but it's SOOO good so totally worth it. Try the rye bread soup for dessert - surprisingly good Latvian dessert. And the veal was yummy too!

We came across this lovely little restaurant while being in the old Town and looking for somewhere to have lunch as it is right next to the Swedish Gate. The atmosphere was cozy, food delicious, service excellent and prices reasonable. We liked it so much...More
