Had tapas and a hummus wrap here (hummus freshly made), all good but nothing exceptional. I found the 'sprat' (local smoked sardine) tapa best. Very small place, friendly owner. I thought a bit expensive for what we got.

Awful food (boiled 'fries'), awful drinks (jack sprinkled with orange juice pretending to be whisky sour, literally the worst drink Ive ever had) and a waiter spilling a drink all over my friend to top it off. Tripadvisor score totally misleading. Dont go there.

Stumbled upon this place on our last evening in Riga. Both of our meals were excellent. They also have a very good selection of beers from the Labietis Brewery.
