Rude staff, very unfriendly. Very slow service. Do not advise. We called ahead, to ask, if dogs are allowed, were given a confirmation. Showed up, and even though our 6 friends were already there, they rudely refused us entry.

Definitely recommend this restaurant! Beautiful food presentation. We had some of traditional Latvian dishes and the taste was unforgetable. The building itself very famous, known as The Cat house. We enjoyed our dinner very much.
