This restaurant is rather pricey for Riga, but the food is beautifully cooked and served. I had a few niggles which included refusing to serve tap water (bottled water was available from 3 euros), which is really niggardly in this day and age. Another niggle was that the complimentary amuse bouche contained chorizo and when the non meat eaters in the group requested this without meat, it was denied as they had already been plated up, which was unfriendly and took away from any delight of the original gesture.
My last grouch was that the main course salmon dish was twice the price of the salmon starter, but pretty much the same size. Others have commented on the small portions served.
However, not withstanding the above, the food was good throughout, especially the starters and the desserts. The staff were initially inscrutable but became friendlier towards the end of the evening. If you can afford it then I recommend it, though as please stop being so penny pinching about the tap water!

This restaurant was picked off Trip Advisor as it was close to our hotel, nice to see palette cleaners between some lovely courses.
Good food, good service, all round a good place to eat in Riga.

As others already mentioned this is a superb restaurant. I’m agree 100%. Excellent location, very polite and friendly staff, delicious food. The prices are also reasonable. You should have a dinner there.

Amazing quality food. The steak was one of the best I've ever had! Very small portions but nicely presented and top quality all round. Good service too. Gourmet food.

I like this place for having a short drink before opera or just passing by and stop for 20 minutes to relax with aperol. They have a very nice street terrace and view to the park being located just in the very center of the city
However you won’t be disappointed if you will have a dinner here. Not to foreget to mention excellent service
