This was the best meal we had in our two week trip to the Baltic states. All the food we had was delicious, beautifully presented. The service and ambiance were excellent. I had the lamb shank... it was amazing. Book a table!

Very nice, smaller, inside dining room. Fish soup was delicious and their wonderful breads locally baked. We especially enjoyed a nutty rye., and they were willing to sell us a loaf. :)

Great Service, great food, great price. Discovered on last night in Riga, not sure how I missed it as it's opposite my hotel. Highly recommended, best, friendliest and most professional waitresses in Riga.

Riga does not seem to have the same quality of restaurants as Tallinn or Vilnius but can't see why this is so highly rated. Food was pretty average, mains were very overcooked. Service was somewhat perfunctory, if may have been the end of summer but...More
