A good value and tasty meal for two. Nice atmosphere, cosy and romantic. We had chicken wrapped in bacon and roast pork. Lovely staff.

“Nice garlic, but other tastes bit missing”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We had a garlic tapas for two, garlic soup and garlic/mushroom soup. Tapas was good with very nice garlic flavours, but would have been nicer if included more diversity, e.g. meat or fish. Now it is only very garlicly. Soups were good as well - mushrooms did not taste too much, but ok.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Having been in for a beer and a snack, we booked a table for dinner the day after, the nice waitress had given us a good impression. Alas the day after, a new witness was bringing us a virtually tasteless dish. The meal cost 17 euro. We gave her a 20, but she never returned the change. Upon leaving after a long wait for the change, we left. We would have told her to keep the change, had she returned it. First time a waiter never returns the change however small.

“For garlic lovers!!!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

THE best place if you don't mind garlic in your meal. Garlic beer is a must. Especially perfect if you're getting a cold from baltic weather

“Pleasant return visit”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Enjoyed it. Very nice food, the salmon was done as only salmon appears to be done in the Baltics. Perfect.
Good service in English. Once we got underway, the food and drinks came in a timely way.
No draft beer, as listed on the menu, but a very good beer in bottles.
The garlic enhanced truffles for desert was exquisite. We split one and there was plenty.
They serve parsley sprigs after the meal, an effective way to freshen the palate (and breath!)
