My partner and I are in Riga to celebrate his birthday. We have just left this restaurant after what can only be described as a very disappointing experience. This restaurant is in a discount scheme with 4 other restaurants, 3 of which we have been to already and enjoyed good food and service. Tonight we were shown to a nice... More

Visited this restaurant on the evening of 18th March 2017. Fantastic fish starter and main course, excellent service - waitress spoke very good English, very efficient and friendly! Personally, a real plus point was that the coffee was served with warm milk. Highly recommended!

As always restaurant reviews are highly subjective in terms of quantity and quality of food and the ambience of the restaurant. What we like others may not, for various reasons. Visited this restaurant twice, when the food and wine were enjoyable. We were so impressed that we visited the restaurant a few days later and had a totally different experience.... More

Had seen some good reports and expected a lot, but it wasn't to be. We did have some very good salmon and Perch, but the Boullabaise was just a very poor and basic soup, nothing like it should and I've had on many occassions. Wine selection was terrible and the wine recommended to us by the waitress was undrinkable. We... More

This was our first night in Riga and we were really impressed by the food. The oysters were on special offer and delicious and our dinners were just as tasty. Our waiter was friendly and informative.

Bright lights, few people, we should have followed our gut instincts and carried on walking. We complained about the warm seafood salad, advertised as containing advocado prawns and salmon, barely traces of each of these and all the waiter could say was " that's unfortunate". Stale bread, frozen butter and surly staff. Give it a miss.
