Andalūzijas Suns is named after the surrealist short film “An Andalusian Dog” by Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí. The bar used to be united with the cinema next door, known as K-Suns (Cinema Dog), hence the slightly obscure name. Located in the elegant Berga Bazaar, built at the end of 19 century, A-Suns’ sits hidden from the street, with outdoor seating on a beautiful little square decorated by a fountain. There are regular Wednesday concerts at Bergs Bazaar during the summer which can be enjoyed with a glass of wine from the terrace, an isolated little oasis of calm away from the busy streets.
Despite the upmarket location, they call themselves the most democratic restaurant in Riga; prices seem “democratic”, around 7- 13 € for mains.They also serve breakfast and there is a special lunch offer on working days from 11:30-16:30, but you can also just pop in for a coffee in the afternoon, or something stronger in the evenings when the atmosphere transitions from restaurant to bar. The menu displays influences from all over the world; you’ll find hummus, Greek salad, pizzas and pastas, nachos, risotto and of course local Latvian flavours as well. They even have a special children’s menu. Stop by the Andalusian Dog, mingle with the film-goers, discussing the latest European movies, businessmen and creatives from nearby offices and anyone who enjoys great food in a relaxed environment.
