Just unbelievable. Food was very close to Michelin star as well as service. Crocodile wasn't for my taste, but what the he'll, how can You know if You don't try. Fish ( my main) was 11/10 as well as starters and extras. Service was perfect. Never had such a great service in Latvia as I'm there every year. If You... More

We were recommended to visit this restaurant in our hotel and I would say that we don't regret. Restaurant, situated in the city center, specializes in African dishes: crocodiles, zebras and other exotic meat can be eaten there. So delicious! Service is good as well as food-compliments by the staff. Only one tip: do not say "thank you" while paying... More

looked on trip advisor to see where was good to eat in Riga but decided to ask receptionist for advice at last minute - he strongly advised Kilimanjaro. I was a bit reluctant as why go to an african sounding place in Riga??? - so glad that we did. We ordered our starters and main but were given an amuse... More

We were not so hungry but we want to eat out on our last night in Riga so we asked for a great place and this was recommended by the receptionist. He said that this restaurant offers "exotic" foods like crocodile and zebra so out of curiosity we went there but too scared to try the "exotic" dishes. hehe They... More

We had a fairly late arrival so asked our hotel for a recommendation. Our party of six were all bowled over by the decor, the food and the service. Nice touches - different breads with a selection of butters, amuse bouche, and a frozen raspberry sorbet between our starter and main courses. The service was impeccable, the wine was very... More

We were visiting Riga and were recommended the restaurant at our hotel reception. We were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming and friendly throughout, especially to our child. The African theme is recognisable in a few dishes, otherwise the type of food is fairly mainstream. Especially the desserts are worthwhile.

I was invited for a business diner by a local inhabitant, and charmed by the quality of service. I had an excellent tartare of Baltic Herring followed by a piece of deer with a red berry sauce. The amuse-bouche are interesting. We also tasted a local sparkling wine, kind of exotic experience! The decoration matches with the name, cool and... More
