“A cut above - but very reasonable pricing”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is a great setting - up on the 5th floor roof terrace of the hotel you are literally sitting amongst the spires of Riga. There are blankets and heaters on hand if it gets a wee little bit chilly.

We selected this restaurant as it was reviewed in Lonely Planet as being "Top End". That it is. The food is very good quality, well presented and the sauces really compliment the dishes. Service is helpful and efficient.

Lonely Planet also mentions "wallet busting prices". This is completely off the mark. The prices are absolutely no more expensive than the restaurants lining the squares and main streets, yet the food is much better as is the setting. We had 2 main courses, 1 side, 2 desserts, a large bottle of water and a bottle of prosecco ... Total cost 54Lats (marginally over $200)

Very very pleased with our dining experience.

“Tourist trap!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

As a local i can say only tourists go there. Roof terrace has a great view over Old town, and if you are looking for the place where to have tea, coffee its fine. But food is average and to Latvian standards very much overpriced!! Also at the end of the meal you are not given the receipt, so I have strong opinion they avoid paying taxes there. All and all, choose another place and avoid that tourist trap!!

“Enjoy it on a sunny day”
Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

I went on a windy day and only for a drink, but loved the place. I think it is a bit expensive, but perfect for a little pre-dinner or late night drink.
