Delicious little Latvian taverna! Would absolutely recommend and go back. We had a Latvian Mulled Wine and Latvian Beer and a Pear Cider, it was very reasonably priced. A little hidden away, but it's just opposite the War Museum (which is also worth a visit!)...More

Good beer sat in the sun and interesting food such as the soup without a plate, a local dish and tasty. Only problem was the many wasps due to the time of the year but none the less its worth a visit

Tasteless vege soup as starter and pork ribs was a huge dissapointment being all dry without any seasoning. Service was bad and rude. Keep walking 30meters more and have a pleasant evening.

No seasonings, dry ribs, chewy pork. Rude service. Forgot to bring beer and soup was more like porridge.

A lovely local dark beer. Wished I took a picture of the cheese and bread platter we had as well. Great tables outside on a cobblestone alley where we watched the world go by. Loved!
