One of the all-time favorite places in Old Town. Beer selection is amazing and food consistently good. Not cafe prices, but definitely worth it. Recommend!

A bit pricy but the large order of mussels was quite tasty and filling. A few more fries would have been nice, however. Tons of beer choices, nice ambiance. Service was somewhat slow on a quiet evening. Dessert was too small and expensive, but I...More

Great food, big portions! A bit pricey but worth it. Service is outstanding. Best beer selection in Riga.

Don't judge this bar/restaurant by its rather relaxed pub atmosphere as both food and drinks are absolutely first class. We had burgers and meatballs for lunch with Belgian beer. And we were left with amazement of how great everything was, food quality, service and freshness...More

The interior reminds me how the old belgian bars used to be decorated (and that was a great trip back down the memory lane!) .. Great selection of beers and the steak was pretty good! Staff was very friendly and helpful!

Great service and surroundings similar to that of an English pub. Leffe Ruby is sold here - it's beautiful and our favourite so, naturally, we visited more than once. Excellent food too.

A place to be checked once, but certainly not for regular dining. Service is good and quick enough for attracting business travelers as well as tourists and young crowds. Beer is... Belgian, no better, no worse. A matter of taste. In my mind, when in...More

Nice belgian bar/restaurant with a good atmosphere and service. We visited there at Saturday and the restaurant was booked-up, so reservation would be recommended. We weren't in a hurry so we waited in the bar maybe half an hour until we got a table. Bon...More
