The culturally musical bar and restaurant Trompete (‘trumpet’ in Latvian) was conceived with an aim to offer fresh, delicious food with ingredients sourced from selected locally produced and imported products combined with the pleasing sounds of jazz music, acclaimed wines and select whiskies and rums. The restaurant is located in the heart of the Old Town, next to the ancient Salt Carriers’ Guild. The historical aura at Trompete has been preserved, combined with modern minimalism and a warm, relaxed, yet refined atmosphere. Pendant lamps, wooden tables and exposed historic walls allow everyone to enjoy the fusion of gastronomy and music.

We came for dinner here. Whilst the ambiance is nice, the food was nothing to write home about. My husband had calamari.. he said it was like rubber, under cooked and he sent back.

We visited this bar several times, for a drink, for a lunchtime snack and an evening meal. The atmosphere was very warm. The food was delicious. Great music. Enjoyed spending time here. A place to visit

Probably feel they don’t have to try to hard given the musical entertainment. We waited nearly an hour for our starter which was a simple “build-by-numbers” cheese platter. Another long wait before a heavy beef kofta and a very acceptable mushroom penne. Not over impressed.
