“Fabulous!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful menù, originally reinterprets the traditional Baltic ingredients. Each bite is a pure joy to the palate, from the starters to the honey ice whiskey and to coffee! Liver mousse/ice cream, beetroot gel, red deer tartare, fish, desserts- we chose to have a tasting menù so as to get to try a bit of everything and we didn't regret! would say one of my best European eating experiences, coherent all the way around - from the warm atmosphere to wine and coffee!

“exquisite”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The meal and service were flawless. Dining alone, I felt like an honored guest. The sommelier did a brilliant job of pairing the wine to the food.

“Best ever”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Marvelous restaurant! This is definitely the best place I've ever been in Riga.
The meal here is truly fantastic, I enjoyed every single piece.
I strongly recommend to try a desert called "Thai mango symphony". This is something unforgettable.

“good but not enough for EU standards”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Well... the restourant is nice and elegant, but the cousine is not at the high peaks of other EU restaurants. Honestly for 60 Euro here the level should be really higher.
The price is to much for Riga and for the quality of the food.
If we compare this restaurant with one Michelin star in EU, the comparison is unmerciful.
Just to be clear: the food is good, but not enough for the price paied (if then we consider that in general you can eat with less than the half in another good restaurant in this city...).
