I experienced a late lunch under transparent covering and the world's down pour of rain! Looking a bit like a cat having been for a swim, as I came there, we soon ordered their beer - Valmiermuiza, shots of French Vodka for my friend and...each of us a pica - although I asked to have mine tailormade. And they were fast to accommodate that, that was one more positive in the tick box! Tiger shrimps, tomato, cheese, mushrooms and before we knew we had one in front of us. The rain kept pouring down, but as we finished some 90 minutes later to go back to work - the sun was up, all felt very pristine and we had a good little walk to the Laima stand. Charming and nice lady waiting our table made the difference and a positive apprentice chef made my pica look beautiful!:) Beer price for 0.5 at 4 EUR makes this nice little spot just behind the Swedish gate a small gem!More

Chose to eat here for dinner and made a reservation in advance. Friendly and welcoming service but as the restaurant was very busy, the service was slow. There were only two people working, although they did their best. Quality of food and drinks were really...good and the pizza was delicious. The restaurant has a nice ambience too with good background music. The restaurant is located near the Old Town and is easy accessible by foot. Reasonable prices. Would recommend a visit.More

I had a connection flight to Tallin so I paid a quick visit to the old town of Riga. The restaurant attracted me with the first look! Happy , willing people ! I got the fillet of the house and a tiger prawn salad (without...the prawns) . Fillet medium , but should have order it medium rare! The meat was perfect and the cooking excellent!!! Definitely a must !More
