While a visit to the Melnie Muki (Black Monk) might not pardon your sins, it will answer your prayers if you're looking for a wide international menu and warm atmosphere. The restaurant got its name from being situated in the brick-lined remnants of a cloister. The former holy haven has become quite popular with both the locals and tourists - possibly because their menu was designed by former a presidential chef - so be sure to make a reservation, or you'll be stuck praying for a table!

The food (we ate the salmon steak and créme brulée) was really good and the price was rather good. The wine tasted well with the food, but was somewhat expensive.
The staff wasn't as attentive as they should have been, but weren't rude.
The looks of the restaurant was nice, but some details in the interior design broke the style a bit to much. The choice of music was also rather... eclectic.
Very, very popular place!
A bit overrated - there are far better places to eat in Riga in my opinion...
