We had mixed feelings after our dinner at this restaurant. Although the food was excellent in every way, from start to end, the service just could not live up to that. Our waiter made an effort to be attentive, after the starters he changed and made every mistake in the book, from serving the men first instead of the lady to destroying part of the dessert and (!) serving it without hesitation. No offer to take it back to the kitchen, instead he even left the damage on our table. So regard to the high price level of this restaurant and to the special birthday occasion we went out to celebrate, we were highly disappointed. Our recommendation to the owners: please improve the training of your staff so they will be able to complement the wonderful food they are serving.

We were a group of about 20 persons having a great dinner at this restaurant centrally located in the Old City. We got a three dinner course with chicken as main meal. Both the starter and desert contained ice cream- a bit surprisingly - but very tasty. And very good! Portions not biggest in size, but I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Went to this beautiful restaurant in the heart of Old Riga to celebrate anniversary. We had excellent three dishes meal but the best for me was smoked mackerel tartar with typical latvian bread which was a perfect combination and opened new approach to latvian cousine.
Design of the restaurant is beautiful - ellegant and calm. And service, thank you, was really good as well - educated waiter with nice sense of humour.
Thanks for the beautiful evening!

Thank Anete A
