Rātes vārti is still my choice #1 for good business lunch or dinner with wife in Valmiera. Also good for kids to learn visiting restaurant, but not fun place for them. Good food, friendly staff, reasonable restaurant prices. See you again!

Difficult to say, but anything from 15 euros to about 30 euros. Dependent on what you mean by full meal.
