We know how puzzled one can get, stressing out to find THE Latvian meal: not too rustic, not overpriced, well balanced out, yet giving you the core of the local taste. The Kalniņš Family, running their countryside hit Zaķu Krogs restaurant in the Jūrkalne region already for ten years, just got all the family members around the Visums project, right on the main Riga Art Nouveau street. Local meat, fish and veggies, seasonal, never frozen, prepared in a traditional not over-sophisticated, yet creative way— this is exactly what you have been looking for: a perfect local taste experience. We loved the lamb stew soup, dip fried herring, and flatfish, topped off with an absolutely irresistible rye bread layer cake. Get dizzy with their seasonal author’s cocktails on the base of the homemade syrups. Wine list by Nº1 sommelier in the Baltics Raimonds Tomsons. Clean, minimalistic surroundings not to diverge from the essence.
