“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

The best restaurant in town and right opposite the theater. Try calling in advance to reserve a spot.

“Warm & Friendly Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

We had a lovely 2 course dinner. The food was very nice, well presented. Staff were pleasant. A great place to go out for dinner on Friday night or a coffee before the theater.

“The best place to eat in Valmiera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

Whenever I need to go to Valmiera I try to visit this particular restaurant - "Rātes vārti". It's rather elegant yet cosy at the same time. The food is great and so is the service. Try "tongue salad", this is my favourite of all times. The only suggestion I would like to make - a bit more variety on the kids menu since subtle dishes from the main menu are not always appreciated by those who are in the tender age of 11.

“One of the best hotels in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2009

I love this restaurant! The waitresses are nice and even though they might not know English very well, they will try their best to understand. The service is good.
I also think the food is very good and the prices aren't very high. I would highly recommend it to anyone! My favourite is the warm couscous salad. And you have to taste their mojitos. :)
