Located in the Riga Old Town in a house with a cat statue on the roof, this restaurant is a fine choice for dinner. Service was very good and friendly. Complimentary compliments from the chef were a nice addition to the tasty main courses.

Atmosphere was further enhanced by a dry ice (carbon dioxide) table decorations. Dry ice was also used in drinks for decoration. There was also a saksofonist to entertain the people.

Great location, historical building, nice live saxophone music by an old local, great presentation and good choice of food, although mostly meat dishes. Let the waiters help you choose, wont be dissapointed. The smoke presentation is also quite unique at the begining and the end. Not cheap, but worth it.

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.
