My wife and I have been going to this Armenian/Georgian family owned and run restaurant for almost sixteen years. It is our favorite restaurant in the world, focusing on tasty and filling dishes from their native Caucasus region. We particularly like their Lobio (Bean) salad, their Baklazhanis (marinated eggplant strips rolled around a walnut and garlic paste, or a cheese... More

This is a family run restaurant that serve Armenian/Georgian food based on high quality ingredients, cooked with care and love. The owners and staff take their time to entertain you with anything from discussions on history to the preparations of the food. They do not try to be authentic, they simply do what they love, and they do it very... More

NB new address J Alunana 2a Try Georgian and Armenian food at it's best. "Lamb pa Karski" is marinated and grilled to perfection! Hatchapuri, a cheese pie, is a must try. Good selection of Georgian and Armenian wines. Try the pommegranate wine. For desert try the spiced coffees and the "Churchill Cognac". After his visit in Jalta Churchill drank this... More

Well firstly we went to the location listed on trip advisor to find a note on the window to say that they had moved location to a place opposite the British embassy. So we set off and arrived a little later. The place was empty but we were made welcome and ordered some veal schlaslic and the chicken and aubergine... More

Basically you have to give the place 5 or 1 stars because you will either love it or hate it depending on whether you are ready for an adventure taking you 30 years back or not. I chose the middle and will try to explain the good and bad sides. When you enter the restaurant it feels like you are... More

We read the reviews before visiting and were tickled. We were seated and guided by the owner herself. She explained the dishes and chose the right amount of food we wanted, as we mentioned we do not like large portions. Great experience! Great, tasty food! Very affordable. We loved the appetizers, stuffed aubergines with walnuts and cheese.

First visit. We walked to restaurant. Need to look for the number 15 to find it as it is upstairs. Warm welcome on arrival. Help offered with choice of menu. Appetisers can be shared or have a half portion. We shared dried herby beef and a bean & walnut pate with Armenian flat bread. Delicious starter. Our mains were the... More

Every time we visit Riga we cannot miss it! Great food, very tasty and real Caucasian. Very kind owners trying to do their best to make you have your best diner. If you are looking for good and authentic food it's here! Deco is the same since many years and it's not a fashion restaurant... But believe me you won't... More
