As always restaurant reviews are highly subjective in terms of quantity and quality of food and the ambience of the restaurant. What we like others may not, for various reasons. Visited this restaurant twice, when the food and wine were enjoyable. We were so impressed that we visited the restaurant a few days later and had a totally different experience.... More

Had seen some good reports and expected a lot, but it wasn't to be. We did have some very good salmon and Perch, but the Boullabaise was just a very poor and basic soup, nothing like it should and I've had on many occassions. Wine selection was terrible and the wine recommended to us by the waitress was undrinkable. We... More

This was our first night in Riga and we were really impressed by the food. The oysters were on special offer and delicious and our dinners were just as tasty. Our waiter was friendly and informative.

Bright lights, few people, we should have followed our gut instincts and carried on walking. We complained about the warm seafood salad, advertised as containing advocado prawns and salmon, barely traces of each of these and all the waiter could say was " that's unfortunate". Stale bread, frozen butter and surly staff. Give it a miss.

Me and my boyfriend visited here on our first night in Riga last month. We spotted it straight away as it looked really nice and clean inside. The staff were very attentative to us and very friendly. My only criticism was that the service was very slow, we were there for around 2 hours only having 2 courses. However, it... More
