THe atmosphere in the Black Magic Bar is very special and relaxing. We enjoyed very much the hot choclates and chocolate candies offered by the bar.

First of all, this is a very well-reviewed restaurant - but I always find great value in the most recent review, and those that are less favorable. I visited on a cold, rainy, fall day and found no crowds at all. Perfect. I had no...More

We had cake, coffee and some of the pralines. Everything was really delicious and more than worth the price! Definitely a must do when in Riga!

Great decor.....great atmosphere.............great staff...........great food (chocolate abounds so what's not to like?) BUT what is missing is a choice of beer - even a couple of bottled choclate beers to keep with the theme. Only that prevents a halo on top of the five stars.
