A nice beer restaurant located in a cellar. Food was very good and was reasonably priced. There was also a wide variety of drink to choose from including local beers and wines.

Latvian friends took me to this wonderful restaurant-bar. The atmosphere is great, the interior is rustic, authentic, gives you a very welcoming feeling. This is matched by the staff, who are very friendly, fluent in English and extremely efficient. While the food is of course...More

Everything was without taste: food and wines ( both white and red wine-- do they mixed it by water?). My cheeses were also tasteless. What is wrong with them?
