One of the best restaurants I have visited. Excellent food. Very professional service (Except that I ordered a bottle of wine they didn't have and had to select something else. 3 times!). The food and service is worth coming back for.

Together with my colleagues I have been at this restaurant for the first time 2 days ago and it was really good! As the portions are smaller than usual, the waiter informed us to order different dishes. I decided to take the asparagus soup and the lamp rump steak and the food was excellent! I definitely will go there again... More

Thanks for the great farewell party some years ago with my ex colleagues! Food was great, atmosphere was fantastic and personnel professional :) Second time was today when the restaurant helped me to organize surprise dinner for my friend! Thank you for understanding, flexibility, patience and time!

Restaurant offers excellent menu with many different and trendy choices: vegetarian, asian, meet, fish. Interesting appetizers, tasty white wine by glass. Prices are a little more than average but also not expensive. Food absolutely deserves the prices. I prefer to sit outside. Just more nice.

We are regular travelers to Riga. My spouse is Latvian-American. We have been to a great many restaurants in all categories. International is at the top of our list, in a category shared by only one or two others. Excellent menu, inventive dishes and great wine-list. Service was also outstanding. Finally, convenience is unparallelled. The #11 tramway to and from... More

The waiters were attentive and patient from the moment we stepped into the restaurant till the very end of our course. We had a 30 euro chef's set which we booked through email (they were very responsive to emails, and I think you can order without reserving in advance too). It had a total of 7 courses inclusive of dessert.... More
