Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food. Traditional dishes but often done in a modern way - so things like pancakes light and fluffy. Lovely friendly and obliging staff. Comfortable warm and reassuring atmosphere.

Hearty and glorious food. A truly lovely place for delicious Latvian food. The garlic rye bread is sublime and the dumplings even better. Truly amazing desserts, cold beers and a warm welcome, what more could one want?

Traditional Latvian Food but mass produced - self service canteen like. Cheaper than other restaurants and cafes that we visited - just felt a bit disappointed overall

Four of us ate here, two shared the pork knuckle which was enormous, the others had salmon and chicken. All excellent as was the garlic rye bread starter. Service good, price fair. My favourite meal in Riga

After being recommended to come here for the pea soup we did. Both is us did not enjoy the soup. The waiter seemed like we caused an inconvenience by being there. When asked to pay she pressured us into paying by cash when we wanted...to use card. A gentleman who doesn’t speak good English came in requesting a table. Despite there being many seats available she said ‘no we are full’ in a tone that was extremely unfriendly. We walked away with a sour taste in our mouth not only pea soup.More

This restaurant charges 2€ for tap water. It is probably legal in Latvia, but not very ethical. Food is mediocre and expensive. 16€ for a so-called beef strogonoff that consisted of a few fat pieces of beef and the rest of mashed potatoes. When I...asked for the check, I was reminded that service was not included. Better stay away from this place.More

Friendly restaurant right in the heart of the old town. The atmospheric restaurant offers Latvian food and it tastes really good. Strong recommendation for visitors to Riga

Our small tour group were taken here by our tour leader on our first night in Riga. It has an atmospheric interior and serves Latvian cuisine. The food was decent - my husband really enjoyed his beef stroganoff with mashed potato, whilst my potato pancakes...with smoked salmon and sour cream were good but nothing special. For dessert my husband had plum cake, which he loved, whilst I had the rye bread dessert with whipped cream and chokeberry - very odd to be honest. Service was polite if not especially friendly and everyone’s food arrived in good time.More

We sat inside (they have outside tables too) and enjoyed a delicious meal with great service. I had a very generously sized salmon fillet with tasty baked potatoes (which I think had been lightly fried, definitely enhances the taste). As in many (but not all)...places in Riga, allergen information is marked on the menu which made it easy to work out the gluten-free options. Staff were friendly & efficient and the decor is rustic and cosy.More

This really is tourist central, but they do it very well. I wanted to try some Latvian food and they give you a wide choice. I started with an appetiser based on smoked sprats and followed with a pork (little) and vegetable (lots) casserole served...in a pot with some melted cheese on top. Both were enjoyable. I arrived just after eight, and got the last table outside. The staff were pleasant.More

A week in Riga and we thought there were no bad eateries in the town . But Province is bad, poor food and high prices. It's just a tourist trap, flashy and with a prominent position, there are dozens of better venues nearby.
