Very comfortable and romantic atmosphere ,what suitable as for randevue as for family dining,so I wold recommend it to everybody ! One of the great moments of my visit always been perfect service- stuff is always attentive ,knows which one advice to give to every single customer-high level. This is gourmet restaurant,do be ready to have a slow food style,we always been spending there about 3 or 4 hours in that cozy and relaxing atmosphere.All the seats are with similar comfort ,but I prefer the table in the middle with nice golden sofa and glass floor ) and VIP area for discreet and private dinner. Great starters ,compliments from the shef and fruit sorbet between the meal-superb!

Tjhis was by far the best restaurant I visited during my week in Riga. The food was ecellent as well as the service. I could almost go back to Riga just to eat here again :-)
On top of it was it not too expensive and we enjoyed good wine with the food without being ripped off. Wonderful and highly recommended. Very special setting makes it interesting.

Just perfect. It's hard to say more. Wide selection of dishes (European and domestic kitchen) and wines, helpful advises from attentive an diligent staff. Needless to say that every single piece of food from welcome bread to final crème brûlée was of very good quality and very delicious. One of the best restaurants that I have ever visited.

The food was fantastic and authentic. The best bread basket we have ever tasted in our lives, anywhere!

The service was excellent and the restaurant spotlessly clean. The interior and ambience gorgeous.

Splurge and eat here! If you like beer, Zelta is the best.

This must have been one of the finest restaurants I've ever been to. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the atmosphere over-the-top!

The prize was not to high either :) This is a must-visit when in Riga.
