We came here only for drinks, looking for a quiet place (the other terraces on Livu Laukums being very noisy late at night).
A good place with the most excellent service, we had during our Riga city trip. Excellent staff!
Sincerely recommended.

Chef Andrei Kudravets is an exceptional young star who brings a range of inventive dishes based on traditional Latvian cuisine including variations on old family recipes. Only the best freshest ingredients are used. Every dish from starter to desserts is an artistic work and taste treat. Although on one of the main squares in the well-know Black Cat House building, don't let the touristy surroundings keep you from dining here. Ask "maestro" Kudravets for his suggestions for your meal. You will not be disappointed. There are also many special touches and courtesies extended to guests in the way of drinks etc. This young chef is headed for Michelin star restaurants elsewhere in Europe I am certain.

The ambience and service is good. I ordered biz lunch, included fish soup, chicken as main course and coffee. The food is a little bit slow, but tastes well. My husband is quite satisfied with pork. And don't miss the apple pie, very yummy! In all, a fairly good choice!

Good place, good food, good location. A little bit too slow service. Good place to have a meal on a regular day but rather not for a special ocasion.

I loved the food and I loved the terrace and I even loved the service, since they were nice English-speaking people. The only thing you have to accept before entering is that it is not a fast-food restaurant :) Most likely you will be waiting for up to 10 minutes for the menu, than again for drinks, after a while you'll get the food you ordered. If it does not bother you, it is very possibly you will like at least their soups and desserts.
