Medus (“Honey” in Latvian) is a lovely restaurant located in the heart of Liepāja city center. The restaurant serves tasty, traditional Latvian food and has some great deals such as “business lunch”, which includes soup, a main course and a drink, or a main course, dessert and a drink, and costs around €4. There’s a terrace on the first floor which is great during the summer.

Bel Cibo

Bel Cibo (“nice food” in Italian) is a garden restaurant and as such is best enjoyed in summer (though it also has a lovely indoor space for the colder months). The quality of the food is excellent, since the ingredients get delivered once a week directly from Italy. The staff is very friendly and the owner always happy to chat with customers and explain the different dishes and ingredients available.
