My wife and I found this restaurant while wandering around the Old Town on our first night in Riga. The comprehensive menu looked good so we popped in. There was only one woman waiting on the tables but she was welcoming and gave great service....More

Based on tripadvisor I was really looking forward to visit the restaurant. On a saturdaynight around 21h30 my girlfriend and I called the restaurant in the hope there was still a table left. They said we could come. We arrived and there were some drunk...More

Nice, homey and peaceful restaurant. Really friendly staff and very good pizzas. Might be a little bit hard to find but really worth of visit.

A bit tricky to find (it’s off the main address street, just before the hole in the wall), but I went two nights running and both times the staff were friendly (with good English), the food was great and the bill ‘right’ (pizza, a beer...More

If you are a bit tired of the heavy meat and potatoes of traditional Baltic dishes, you could do worse than a pizza at this place. Friendly staff and a quiet, out of the way courtyard make for a pleasant relaxing evening.

This review is based on food. So, my average 3 stars doesn't mean that it was bad. This was a good place for a pizza lunch and I have no complaints about the service. However, the dessert was not that great. I tasted two different...More
