We have been returning to this place again and again. The menu is full of game dishes like wild pigeon or beaver and everything tastes just great. Very cosy atmosphere in historic building in Old City. Highly recommend!

This is very cute, cozy and authentic restaurant in Riga. Food is amazing and they have very good selection of different kind of meats. It was probably the best duck confit ate in a while! Staff and service was great too!

1221 is a nice local restaurant. Very well funished in a traditional style. The staff is nice and I enjoyed the food. It's a little bit expensive, but I shouldn't expect to pay less for that kind of service.

Good menu, plenty to choose from, the only drawback would be that almost every main course is accompanied by fruity flavoured sauce/side, but maybe it's chef's feature! My husband and i shared a herring starter, which was as expected delicious, but hey! how much cooking...More
