Apparently family run by siblings of a family, it was a petite glimpse of what like can be if you had your own garden to eat in. They served me a great Schnitzel with potatoes cubes, a lot of varied and beautifully served vegetables, most...nourishing with good Madona(?) beer, unfiltered, under the skies of Riga and with nice pleasant people all around fairly near to where I live. It is amazing finding places like these in one's suburb and with so good quality and friendliness on part of the waitress, barman and others Thank you! Nice touch to serve us that little apple based liquer! Hope to be back..now I know you are there!More

Not cheap but good quality. Small menu with quite a few gems (try the cheek!) and overall good quality. Unfortunately they only have menus in Latvian and the service is pushy and not very friendly. They had trouble translating the menu for those who don't...speak the language. They also managed to make a few mistakes even though we ordered in Latvian.More

Slightly on the outskirts but that delivers you the best possible price to food quality ratio you can ask for. Certainly a place to return to, looking forward already :)

Would never have found it without TripAdvisor. Tried the Clams, Fish & Chips, Salmon and the chocolate mousse...was worth the drive

Turned in for a late lunch. If the weather allows you - sit outside, gives you plenty of chance to enjoy season colors. it appears that day have “daily specials”, which in our case was an awesome smoked half-a-chicken, with some nice potatoes. The smoker...is just outside of the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the waiters, the friendly atmosphere and the cat, and we will come back. ordered; 2 drinks, one main, one starter - 20eur.More

This was absolutely wonderful. We had the asparagus and green pea cream soup, the slow-cooked salmon, the spinach ravioli with shrimp, and a dish of Latvian tomatoes with basalmic vinegar and pesto. Sophisticated food. Lovely ambience. Beautiful decor — but — and here’s the catch:...Two little play areas for kids? How wonderful.More

Very nice interior/exterior with hipster vibes. Prices are quite high, but there are good (not excellent) business lunches for an average price 5-6 EUR (and they are served really quickly). Really helpful and competent staff.

So happy that we found such a nice place with so delicious food and super friendly staff. Very warm and home feeling atmosphere and if you have kids, then the best place in Riga! Kids are really welcome and it is great to see how...families are enjoying their time out. The food is very delicious – my absolute favourites are octopus salad and grilled asparagus. Love their delicious daily offers as well! We visited Mielotava several times and we didn't have the feeling that we are in a restaurant, felt like home. Thank you so much and missing your atmosphere and food already!More
