“DELICIOUS FOOD”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We found this restaurant while touring in Latvia in July,2014. It is situated in the old town which was very convenient to our hotel. The duck and pork were outstanding...so flavorful and tender.
The portions were large and the staff very friendly. We ate in the quaint surroundings in the cellar but they also have outside seating. The menu is quite large offering many Latvian dishes.

“Delicious food and wonderful service”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We've visited this place today and we loved it so much. It's definitely one of the best restaurants in Old City. The dishes are not expensive. This place is very authentic and serve a lot of delicious Latvian national food. The servants are very polite and speak both English, Latvian and Russian.

“Very Latvian and delicious”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This restaurant may seem very touristy, but it's certainly a nice place and I like the idea that they serve only traditional Latvian food and drinks (so no cola, but specific vegetable and fruit juices etc.). We sat outside, so I saw the interior only briefly, but it seems that it has a real medieval atmosphere, just like the waiter's clothes and the dishes. We had the traditional peas with bacon sauce, it was delicious. The best meal during our stay in Riga.

“We will return to Riga just to go here”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We stumbled on this restaurant on our first evening in Riga and are so happy we did. The food was excellent. Some of the best smoked fish I've ever had...and the beer on offer was definitely the finest I've ever tasted - and I lived in Germany for 5 years. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the cute atmosphere was fab. You're missing out if you don't go here.

“Joly and tasty”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We have been for dinner there. A boy-girl duet met us with many lovely folk songs. The taverna specialises for fish and deer food, we ordered a mix of cold fish pieces which deserved more arrangement phantasy from chef, and a deer stake on cranberries and blackberries which was just great. Local beer from tap was also fine.
