We were attracted to this restaurant because of its advertising "typical Latvian food". My wife had the "Home-made Roast Pork", which was quite average. I had the stewed pork with cheese and vegetables hotpot: this was, again, fairly average. On the whole, I hope that Riga has better to offer.

We found this place pleasant enough but the food was nothing better than ho hum. Hubby had the stroganoff which was a bit too chewy. Daughter had the fish cakes which were pretty bland. It was a pleasant spot and the service was good but overall nothing to write home about.

My family and I decided to go to this restaurant as we saw it had fantastic reviews on this website. The first day we attempted to have dinner there, it was pouring rain and half of the tables outside were unusable. We went inside and we were not assisted by any staff member for a while until a lady approached... More

We were in Riga last december and while going around the city under a rather chilly weather we asked for an option to a restaurant where we could eat typical mat from the country, the person pointed out some kind of place that was popular, we got inside and it was indeed full of people but it felt rather budget...

Booked via trip advisor before arriving and was not disappointed. Great little restaurant that provides good home made Latvian food. Enjoyed great starters Baltic Herrings followed by home made pork and mash with grilled vegetables, girls had grilled chicken breast which they enjoyed. Good selection of beers and wine. Service good although done at their own pace.

Nice place to eat after a day in the old town. Interior of this small restaurant is charming and personnel were very friendly and helpful. Can recommend to everyone.

We wanted to eat at a true Latvian restaurant and found one in Province! The food was great and the beer just as good. I had a cheese platter and chicken livers with onion and sour cream ... YUM!!!

This is a small restaurant with lots of warm, rustic charm. This is the best place we tried for Latvian specialities. Our waiter, Andre, was very friendly and helpful. I had the fish cakes with a cream sauce and would have them again.

Province throws into relief what increasingly seems to me to be a flaw in TripAdvisor's rating system. I don't have a problem with a five-star system; the tourism and catering industry has got by with it perfectly well for a century or more, and the current self-congratulatory trend with some hotels to award themselves seven stars is just risible. No,... More
