Definitely recommend this restaurant! Beautiful food presentation. We had some of traditional Latvian dishes and the taste was unforgetable. The building itself very famous, known as The Cat house. We enjoyed our dinner very much.

Once again in Riga and visited the black cat restaurant. This never has given us a bad night. It was my girlfriends birthday this time. Coats were taken when we got in. Very nice and friendly staff. Bread at the table was lovely. Starter was garlic bread followed by fillet steak for me and duck for my partner. Steak was... More

Dropped in here after wandering around town, and very happy! Food was fantastic, the fried cheese salad was amazing, wild boar and the quail done beautifully. Service was excellent, all in all, super happy!

Nice ambiance, but not a god experience. The Baltic Trio appetizer was wonderful, as was the Latvian sparkling wine we ordered to accompany it. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The duck breast was overcoked, the wild boar very bland, and bth were plated on cold plates. Worse yet, we belatedly discovered that the wine we'd with them was... More

Located in the old town of Riga, this is a great restaurant where we had good time to catch some sweets with hot tea during very cold days of June.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is cozy and warm, nice music is playing. Service was very good, the waitress took care that our wineglasses were always full. The food was good (fresh fish; big portion of caesar salad) and of course the wine (best riesling I have ever had). The location is good - it is situated on a quiet... More

We ate here for dinner on a recent family trip to Riga. The service was good - the waitress was attentive and food came reasonably quickly (about 20-25 minutes). The food itself was average at best. Caesar salad had too much dressing and was just not good. Goulash Soup didn't have the thickness it needs to have. Blood sausage was... More
