We had a nice lunch! Funny dish names! Great atmosphere! And view out of the window! Pancakes with mushrooms and fish with crayfish tales - amazing! Slightly expensive, but this is hart of old town - you need to pay the price.

Obviously the appeal is of an authentic Latvian food experience and they certainly deliver on those elements. Worth a visit.

Some kind of faked traditional/medieval/18th century style. Annoyingly loud live music. The salmon was not acceptable, the pork tenderloin was good but no better that I would have done myself at home. Only tourists eating as far as we could tell.

In the heart of the old town Key to Riga offers a cosy atmosphere and good food & wine. I had a speciality, bull's testicles, for the first time in my life here. Very nice :)

Beautiful place, but food wasn’t so good. Salmon tasted like it was from the fridge. Music was excellent. That’s why we went there. Good place to have a glass of wine and enjoy the music.

The restaurant interior as well as the seating outside is lovely. Unfortunately, the starters as well as the main dishes are just way to oversized. We were having business dinner (all 4 were male) and we couldn't finish any of the dishes. A shame to...More
