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.

A tasty latvian style meal. I had beef stroganoff with roasted veg, good value. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere and temperature was warm ( raining outside).

Province is a great restaurant in Old Town Riga. The outside seating looked nice, but we chose to sit inside where the atmosphere is warm and traditional. The staff was very friendly and came by to chat for a while (it was a slow afternoon). We had the dumplings, clay pot, and sauerkraut soup. All were fantastic, except for the... More

We had a terrible meal last night so we were looking forward to something better, and Province more than made up the deficit. The menu might seem a bit unappealing at first, but my advice is to take a chance and go with the flow: you'll be pleasantly surprised! We had the fishcakes (absolutely delicious) and a beef stroganoff (also... More
