“service great, food ok”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

We were the only guests on a Thursday evening from 8-10pm. This surprised us a little bit. We were welcomed in a very friendly way. We had a fish soup which was delicious, a herring - which was just OK and salmon. I went to the Taverna due to the great ratings of other trip advisor fellows but I can definitely not commend this restaurant for its food.

“Tasty food, friendly staff”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

If you're looking for traditional Latvian food in an atmospheric setting, this is the place. It's right by the war museum, down a flight of stairs. We went with a group of 10 (w reservations) and it was not a problem. I highly recommend the Latvian sampler. It has a special dish (and beer!) from each of the 4 regions of Latvia, and the waiter presented an expiation of all of it, complete with map and pointer! Who knew Latvians believed they invented pizza? My son had the herring, which was huge. Warning: soup in a bread bowl should be viewed as a meal and not an appetizer. All food is traditional, so no soft drinks, which was great. The kids tried cherry, currant and birch drinks, and liked them all. I'd definitely go back--our waiter was by far the friendliest person I met in Latvia.

Hello,
It was our first time in Riga and we came across this taverna by chance walking around old town. This place had full package: location, friendly prices, quality local dishes, amazing interior, decorations and atmosphere, very friendly staff.....just must eat in place for every traveller.

“Good fish restaurant”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Food in this place is really, really good! All in all a bit pricey but worth it! We ordered wild board sausages that were amazing, with very delicate sauce and vegetables, but the main surprise were the paper wrapped herrings. Try it.
