We entered this restaurant in old city just by chance when visiting different attractions there. Amazing atmosphere like at a home table of a Latvian friend. We tried some typical local dishes, all wonderfully cooked. Congratulations to the team! We learnt the owner has other restaurant in town. Eager to visit all of them next time when we are in... More

I went to Province in early July to eat lunch on my trip to Riga, and i got some truly lovely local food there. The service was excellent, the prices beyond fair, and the food unique and exquisite. Highly recommended.

Our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers enjoyed a relaxing lunch here. We wanted a typical Latvian meal and that is what we got. Sitting outside in the sun with a great view of the town. The food was good with very friendly and attentive staff. Would recommend for the experience of a good Latvian meal with delicious food... More

Province was a lovely restaurant to visit. It offers a different variety of Latvian/Russian foods which is great for people who enjoy trying new cuisines. Looking at the pictures before hand I was expecting the restaurant to be a bit bigger but in actual fact it's small and cosy. Being Russian I was expecting quite a lot from certain dishes... More

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...
