“Average Food. Good Drinks. Unprofessional Service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

The place is a long way to go to be that iconic Russian cuisine family restaurant of the town.

The food is not that amazing - flavors are missing, certainly not worth the money; they should hire a great chef to rewrite the menu from the scratch, otherwise it will end up as another touristy place in Old Riga. The house alcoholic beverages are nice, but the service ruins it. They staff is not trained well to host and be around guests. They drop things, serve food too loud, showing their attitude - everything is done in a rather unpleasantly casual way.

WiFi is not working on summer terrace.

We came here because of Tripadvisor reviews and it was good

“Over hyped in TP”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Service was the worst in our 4 days in Riga

Our dinner meal for 2 cost 64€ - 2 starters and 2 mains plus 4 glasses of ok house wine

The food on balance was not as good as the other places we ate at during our stay - price was on the high side in terms of quality and quantity compared to others

Only really good bit was the dumplings
