In our three days in Riga we visit twice this restaurant. A self service with a huge variety of dishes.
Very clean and tasty food and good value for money. Clean toilets.

I was in Riga for 8 days and ate here several times! The food is cheap, delicious, and the restaurant is clean. It's a great place to grab lunch or dinner when you're out and tired and just want a simple meal without worrying about translation, though in Riga I had very little trouble with language barriers.

Although they position themselves as "Latvian ambiente", I believe that our city and country is something more than German pub-style "singen" as background music and most of dishes being a true cholesterol bomb.

Nevertheless, there are some things that are OK. I went there for plain crepes that I have to admit are good (and well worth the price). But, as I was passing through the hall, I heard the kichen staff discussing (I assume) the working conditions they have. Ehm, if this was a TV show, it would have an eternal beeping instead of talks. One of the guys was swearing so badly, a horseman would go blushing. OK, maybe for foreigners that would ring a bell. But there were also locals. WITH KIDS!!! Do I believe this is a kid friendly place. Hell no. I wouldn't even say that this is a grown-up friendly place.

Not asking for conflicts too often, but this time I really went to those guys and asked them to shut the hell up.

On the other hand I have to admit, that some servers are quite nice - like the ladies that were pouring in drinks from barrels and the cashiers.
