I was delighted to spend some time visiting Talsi, Latvia. The town is quite interesting and historic. I was, however, delighted to have had a super meal at Martinelli's restaurant at the recommendation of family members. What a delight! The prices were quite reasonable, the menu selection was very good as was the service. However, the food was simply outstanding.... More

We were looking for a place to eat before continuing to Cape Kolka and could not resist after reading other reviews. This place is fantastic - beautiful setting, fantastic interior, and tasty food. Service was excellent. Our server had family in Canada and shared stories. He also had helpful recommendations for all courses and drinks.

Thank Nattiejoan

Amazing place in heart of Talsi - one of nice small towns of Latvia. Despite of position directly in center of town it is not so easy to find. You must keep your eyes wide open, but if you found it - it worth all problems. Food is fresh, delicious, fast served (this must be tempting for any traveler) Atmosphere... More

Selection of both international and national cuisine. Very tasty, very fast and very kind service! What else can you ask for? Better than many Riga restaurants for half the price.

This place guarantees absolutely the best experience - me and my family sometimes go to Talsi just to eat at this place. It is very cosy - both inside and if you sit on terrace with flowers all around. If you are lucky to be served by the owner - he makes you feel like you're special. He is so... More
