Traditional Latvian food at a good price. A massive choice of meats and other dishes, with great desserts. Only trouble is, there is so much that you need to go back several times because there's so much you want to try. Really good value.

Food is just as good, if not better, than those pseudo-elegant tourist rip-offs (as the review on 26 July described them) in the nearby Doms Square. If you want service with a smile, or any personal service, go elsewhere, but if you want a filling, affordable, tasty Latvian meal without the frills then this is your place. If that's not enough, then the cheap selection of local beer should seal the deal.

It was a good set up. I didn't particularly like my food(I didn't choose well) but it was nice. I did like the strawberries and strawberry tart

Great food but remember what you buy. You might just have to pay 0.20lvl for a little garnish that you take from the buffet. Except that everything was great. Try pork shashlik, I loved it! :)

We went here three times, once to eat and twice for drinks. We loved it. We would have eaten here more often but our traveling companions like to get ripped off at pseudo-elegant tourist traps and, sigh, we deferred to their will. Anyway, this is a Latvian pub with a very nice range of Latvian and international food. There is no a la carte menu here, but don't be put off by the buffet set-up. The food was good, plentiful, and of excellent value. And of course you can get all sorts of Latvian beer--which is undistinguished frankly--and of course black balsam. The decor is (faux) rustic and entirely consistent with the food and drink on offer. To end on a slightly negative note, if you can get a smile out of the bartenders, you are certainly a better man than I am: what morose, unhappy sadsacks. Why are these guys in the service industry when they do not like people? Why don't they get a job they care about? I thought the Soviet era was long past for Latvia. C'mon guys. Cheer up or move.
