We had a nice lunch. Waiters are very kindly and we did not wait too much to be served. We ordered Latvian-style pork chop and was really good

Best foods in Riga for a low price, what can you ask for more? Add a great atmosphere and great services to that, what;s wrong with you to say it's not great?

Fantastic food and service. Unusual garlic bread but nice and unbelievable chocolate fondeau. Also very tastey drinks. Good value too with starter, main, dessert and drinks only 21 euro. Would recommend.

A group of us ate here during a weekend stay in Riga and we all agreed it was undoubtedly the best food we'd had during our stay. Every dish was incredibly tasty and really well presented. The quality of the food and service was even more incredible when you factor in the really reasonable prices! We couldn't fault anything. Would... More

Had a dinner one late Sunday night in February. The atmosphere was nice and cosy. I had lamb shank with some mashed potatoes. The lamb was really tender and the taste was good. Also the local beer was a nice surprise. Also my collegues was satisfied with their selections.
