Kaļķu vārti

The Kaļķu Vārti restaurant extends over three floors. During the restoration and remodeling of the premises, evidence of past times was discovered that give the modern interior a historical note, such as the original wooden structures and brick vaults in the basement.

Chef has created a distinctly seasonal menu with the richness of Latvia's countryside, forests and waters. Many attribute the honor of the flagship of modern Latvian cuisine to Kaļķu Vārti, and the restaurant justifies this status. Modern Latvian cuisine does not mean taking traditional recipes out of dusty cookbooks, it is thinking that focuses on the story of the natural gifts that grow around us and can be found here in Latvia. Using all this, experimenting and combining, great dishes of Latvian origin are created.
