We stopped by for a quick drink and took the three taster beers made on the premises. All were very nice and came with free seeds. Served quickly reasonable prices.

We visited this restaurant again, after its renovation. The food is good, good choice of wines and beer, relaxed atmosphere, good service-- nice place to stop by and enjoy lazy life!

We were strolling around the old town looking for a good lunch opportunity. After taking a picture of the cathouse we recognized the restaurant in the basement. We had the wild mushroom soup and the beef carpaccio. Bitte were great quality and lovely served.

I've been there with my mother. We came especially for mussels. Selected the most traditional once - with white wine. They were delicious! Quite a number of beer to choose of. And very friendly waitress. Would definitely come again.

The "Black Cat House" offers dozens of Belgian (and other) beers and a great, modestly priced menu. Emphasis on Latvian and Belgian pub food, but other dishes as well. My wife had perch (which was tasty, but probably not perch as English speakers understand it)...More

Rude staff, very unfriendly. Very slow service. Do not advise. We called ahead, to ask, if dogs are allowed, were given a confirmation. Showed up, and even though our 6 friends were already there, they rudely refused us entry.

Good but nothing more. The menu is average without surprises. Everything is tasty but with a lack of excellence. Moreover they serve budget-class tea. However, this is a good place for a business meeting if you do not need to leave impression on your partners....More

Well, the restaurant seemed very nice, the waiters are dressed in ties, nice wardrobe service, and the menu reads like high quality kitchen. Unfortunatly, nobody told the chef... My meal was ready like in 8 minutes - so you can be sure there's nothing made...More
