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. Location is great. There are no doubt that this place has space for improvements.

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 à la minute. The meal was cooked like - well, I could have done better... More

Cold atmosphere, food wasn't fresh, slow service, not friendly staff, dirty wine glasses, no people at lunch time. I do not recommend this restaurant for lunch.

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.
