Nice, friendly and tasty place to visit after you are done with your medieval things nearby. After long day of driving and walking and experiencing Ventspils and surrounding areas we decided to have an early dinner before departing back to Riga. Staff was really nice, attentive, menu had good selection and was reasonably priced. I would say it was truly... More

Very modern restaurant with very good service and food with not only regional dishes. Good place to visit with family - there is some place for litle kids to have fun. Fully recommended

I have been here three times - it is very expensive for what you get. There are not all ingredients mentioned in the menu (specifically ingredients which many people hate, e.g. parsley and celery). PS. Tea was ok

We had a party of 8 and dinner was excellent. Great value and great food. Right on the port so great views and walking afterward. One cool feature is they have a small glass walled room for toddlers so you can let them play while you finish dinner. All great.

Food is tasty, nice view outside and really nice inside, there is separate room for kids to play, it is divided from the restaurant with glass and you can eat and chat and be sure that your child is safe and happy. In my opinion this place is number one in Ventspilse

This cafe overlooks the port of Ventspils - it is nice to see ships passing by. There are several tables outside - for lovers of industrial landscape. :) Inside the cafe is very cosy and spacious, with comfortable chairs and playing room for kids. Staff was very polite and helpful, speaking both English and Russian. And very patient too -... More

Pleasant and efficient service with well cooked food. Seating arrangements and table organisation very good: you don't feel as if you are in too close contact with other diners. Kids playroom seems to keep them occupied (& quiet) which is great for everyone. Would return.

Nice spot on the water that has tables with a view. Inside there is a playroom for younger kids with glass partition. Food was good. Solyanka tasty and large. Chicken cream Pasta was tasty but very creamy. Pork bbq was very moist and meaty. I had salmon which was fine...some restaurants tend to dry it out but it was good.... More
