In a very convinient location, surrounded by a nice guarden it is located Kolonade where you can enjoy good food with good service for a reasonable price. And that is not normal in many Riga restaurants ready to a su high prices for foreigners.

Great service! We haven’t reserve the table in advance ( you should do that!), but they located us at cafe tables. Not so fancy, but atmosphere was great. Waiter helped us to choose wines pairing well with food. Professional and friendly at the same time.

We had a very good light lunch here, the food is excellent, the sommelier knows what he is doing. The staff are efficient but not overly friendly. All in all a good experience

Upscale restaurant with 180 degrees view in the park. Several great local delicacies, such as moose tartar and ox tongue in wine sauce. A discovery was the local sparkling wine, made with rhubarb. The waiter explained later the overall business if the winery maker. Friendly...More
