Had a superb dinner there on our first night in Riga. Very friendly staff. A good selection of food and wines. At reasonable prices. Unfortunately the roof garden was full. Can only recommend to reserve there. We sat in the ground floor- also nice!

We had dinner at 1221 with the family after a long day tour of Riga. We chose this restaurant largely based on TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to our hotel. Overall, we enjoyed it.

Nice place, nice interior, good service. The food came quick and it had a wonderful taste. The price was maybe a little stiff. Thank you for the good food

What attracted me to this place was the exterior deco and the coziness of the place. Sat inside as all the tables outside were occupied. Had their fried salmon and it was delicious. Nice place for a romantic meal too!

A family party of 16 had a real stupendous and flavoursome meal at 1221, we all agreed that the meal was the best we'd had in Riga. Also the service was great too.

A very nice, small restautant in the middle of old town. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy the roof terrace. We were 10 people, 9 ordered the "1221 Steak", and it was the best steak I have ever had. It was perfect prepared, in accordance to the order.

We had a dinner at 1221 on the 25th of June 2016. The restaurant is very cozy and the athmosphere was good. Staff was friendly and food was good (would especially recommend the chocklad fondant). We ordered gintonic as a aperative. In the menu it said that the prize for gintonic is 7 €. But when we got the check... More

We had wonderful service and a beautiful night at 1221. We all ordered different specials and shared. Everything was fantastic and the service was warm and relaxing. Pistachio soup was delicious and we all shared it! Excellent atmosphere and perfect dining with a mix of locals and tourists near us. Thank you!
