We had as a starter mixed cheese platter and fried bread. As a main duck breast and lamb shank. Everything was tasty and well presented. The service was present, but not too formal or pushy. We had really a good time. It was the best...way to spend our last finner in Riga. Absolutely recommendedMore

Delicious food, hospitable staff, and location in the heart of the Old Town, although the place is not crowded at all! A breathtaking view to St.Peter’s Cathedral. A hidden gem with vibe 100%.

The food at this restaurant is amazing and like a previous reviewer said could most likely earn a first Michelin star. Prices are decent as well.

So glad to have eaten here! Firstly, a charmingly beautiful restaurant. Has a really nice terrace with flowers, so dining outdoors nice too. But since it was chilly, we ate indoors. Equally as pretty indoors. Food was divine. We also had tasting bites, compliments from...the chef. Very classy, fine dining style. Starters were mango-duck salad with raspberry sauce; tangy and sweet, and beef tartare. Presentations were beautiful. Homemade bread with 3 types of flavoured butter. Main course was Latvian style pork chop. Delicious and tasty . Service was great. He explained everything and so attentive even though he was alone and the place was quite full. It is a small place so best to make reservations. We went on a Monday afternoon and by 1pm, the place was pretty full....plus there was some business group lunch somewhere on the premises. Still food came out fresh and nicely timed. Definitely happy i made the choice to dine there!More

I didn’t book table but I was appreciate that we could come here for a dinner. I don’t need a lot of words to just say that this place is definitely amazing. We had soups for a starter and it is totally 100% of my...taste. We also ordered beef cheek and beef tartare for a main course. My portion was enough for me and every detail tasted perfect. Nice place, not high price for the best quality and service. Thank you for lunch.More
