We rang ahead in the hope of reserving. We were told to try after half 9. There were only two of us so we hoped we would be lucky. On arrival we were told the restaurant was closed before we got to the bottom of the difficult to navigate cellar steps. Disappointing.

This small place is opposite the castle and we were very surprised to have the restaurant to ourselves. The service was good and the food was delicious. I can highly recommend the blood sausage and rabbit leg in truffle sauce.

Great local Latvian 🇱🇻 restaurant. The food was local , real Latvian recipes. Everything is fresh and homemade. The value was astounding. Lunch prices you can not pass up. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. The wait staff were friendly and helpful , when I asked questions about the menu. The recommendations I ordered were wonderful.

We had a platter with traditional Latvian fare. We ordered the black beans, which was amazing! The portion was great. Loved the decor of the restaurant. Service was very good. Really enjoyed dining there.

We ate here twice as the food was first-class - seafood, meat, pasta, fish - at a very reasonable price. It is a bit off the beaten track, just next to the castle, currently closed for refurbishment, but only a few minutes from the Cathedral. Service excellent, good beer and wine and great food.

We sat outside on the large deck area next to some lamps for better light, though it wasn't really set up for good light or heat lamps or perhaps just not in early September. We ordered the blood sausage to share... More

We sat outside and were the only ones, so the atmosphere was a bit lacking. There is a good selection of traditional dishes on the menu, meat and vegetarian, which is what we were looking for, and some nice local beers. The price was very reasonable and the portions nice and big, in fact my mother struggled to finish her... More
