Nice service. Good option for a lunch in the old city. The restaurant is specialized in fish and sea food. The mussels are very good. Nice tips about the local beers.

Lunch was salad with sea trout - tasty enough and quickly presented. I sat in the outdoor area on this hot lunchtime at end of July. Relaxed atmosphere and decent enough seafood. More moderate pricing and food as good as The Dome Fish Restaurant, but...More

It offers traditional food from Latvia in a modern cuisine format. My choice was fish and mushrooms. Ample list of white wines. The homemade ice-cream was really good.

Description
”Strong and tough people live in this quiet corner of the earth ” Vilis Lacis says on coastal Latvians.In 1939, a feature film was made after his romana ”Fisherman`s Son” , depicting life in fishing villages, fishermen, their joys and troubles, harsh and full of risk everyday life. One generation inherits tools from the other, working methods and hope to become wealthier and independent.Oscar is a fisherman`s son, who is fighting for these ideals, with a bright mind, strong will and faith in a better tomorrow.
