Nice central location and a bautiful setting. Food quality is OK but can not fully meet the price level. They present the food nicely but the quality is slightly overpriced for the level of creativity and quality. I was there for lunch and was the only guest. Maybe there is a reason..., but February is no the tourist season so... More

Overall Riga is amazing for food and we had great meals every night but this restaurant was our overall favourite. The presentation of the food was brilliant and it tasted fantastic. The service was great and the interior of the building is lovely, very atmospheric. Couldn't fault it.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our last night in Latvia and were very surprised at the quality of the food. We did not realise it is a steak and fish restaurant yet the vegetarian option was outstanding, amongst the best meal we had on our trip. (even better than at the vegetarian restaurants). We had an aubergine dish which... More

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor and gave it a go and we weren't disappointed. The waiter spoke very good english and the menu was clear. We went for main and dessert, the service wasn't fast but everything was cooked fresh and we weren't in a hurry. The flavours were amazing and the food was well presented all in all... More

Walk in for supper and met with a pleasant staff, warm and cosy feel to the restaurant. Menu varied and well explained, a little wait for the meal to arrive but that was fine as it was cooked to order. The duck and polenta was delicious as was the crushed chocolate and cinnamon praline ice cream dessert. Popular with locals... More
