Had heard from locals that this restaurant is supposed to be really good and fairly expensive so we had high expectations. Once we got there it was obvious the staff was very professional and that we'd get a fancy dining experience. It did not disapoint! The seared scallop starter was done with little bit of a twist and was one the best starters I've ever had. Steak was really good along with it's side dishes and the chef's special for dessert was superb and served in a unique way. The entire dining experience was very memorable and like expected very expensive as well. Worth the money though!

this was serious delicious food...very good service in a very nice ambiance. There were 2 interesting amuse bouche, before the starters of excellent scallops and foie gras with truffle ravioli. Then there was an amazing sorbet 'frozen' at the table. The main courses were a work of art and were delicious....desserts were amazing. this is definitely the highest quality food and service. There was also an extensive wine list with some bargains..we had exquisite pinot nero from Italy for 48 euros. The total bill was 170 euros including the bottle of wine champagne aperitifs and 2 other glasses of wine..excellent value for amazing quality

Simply superb! I have eaten at many fine restaurants, and this is one way to have a fine dining experience, at a relatively very modest cost, that would probably cost about £200- £300 in most European capital cities.
Martins, the owner and chef, is very welcoming and always trying new ideas and food combinations using only the freshest ingredients.
I ate there twice on a long weekend stay in Riga, and cannot fault the food or service.

One of the top restaurants in Riga with exceptional cooking. Food is excellent. The chef is full of surprises and really does a fantastic job. If you are in Riga, make sure you do not miss the place. It is located in a very nice area just a five minutes ride from the old town. The entrance to the restaurant might not be that enticing, but the interior is quite catchy. And of course, a place like this is not cheap.

during our three days visit. Service and food was definitely the best we experienced in Riga. We had a nice seating outside in a nice area and perfect, not too warm, summer evening. The walk through the park to get there was also perfect. Even if the most expensive, it was worth it.
