Gates galore.
Gates galore.


Just a stone's throw from the Old Riga landmark of the same name, The Swedish Gate is an appetising entry point to Latvian cuisine. 


Set in a cozily decorated 16th century house, the family-owned establishment specialises in hearty dishes from Kurzeme region in western Latvia. Grey peas with smoked bacon or roast pork loin with turnips and mushroom sauce will bust your belt, but they do international classics as well if you want to take it easy. Business lunches on weekdays are awesome value at 5.50 € for three courses.


The family runs another outlet with the same name just around the corner on Torņa iela.
