Visited this restaurant on the evening of 18th March 2017. Fantastic fish starter and main course, excellent service - waitress spoke very good English, very efficient and friendly! Personally, a real plus point was that the coffee was served with warm milk. Highly recommended!

Bright lights, few people, we should have followed our gut instincts and carried on walking. We complained about the warm seafood salad, advertised as containing advocado prawns and salmon, barely traces of each of these and all the waiter could say was " that's unfortunate"....More

”Strong and tough people live in this quiet corner of the earth ” Vilis Lacis says on coastal Latvians.In 1939, a feature film was made after his romana ”Fisherman`s Son” , depicting life in fishing villages, fishermen, their joys and troubles, harsh and full of risk everyday life. One generation inherits tools from the other, working methods and hope to become wealthier and independent.Oscar is a fisherman`s son, who is fighting for these ideals, with a bright mind, strong will and faith in a better tomorrow.
