Tinto

Elizabetes 61, Riga, Latvia
Website
Update restaurant details
Ranked #202 of 485 restaurants in Riga
Cuisines: International
Description: Tinto wine restaurant was quite a surprise. It is hidden under massive building right beside, to my mind, the most beautiful cinema in Europa - cinema "Riga". It turned out that Tinto has their own entrance to the cinema which is great thing. The cuisine and service was splendid, as well as their offer of wines. If you are in Riga, i do recommend.

I and my friend went there for a dinner. Stuff was nice. Place itself is close to center and looks nice: I don't recommend it for dinner though. We ordered fish and risotto (both were really bad) and tapas (what was kinda normal) . I also ordered dessert. What can I say - for a glass of wine with some... More

A small place, needs some more comfortable chairs. Wines are a bit overpriced, and salmon salad smelt funny (like soap). However wine bars are still not a spread-out thing for Riga, and Tinto stands out, but would need more competitive menu and faster waiters (and comfier atmosphere) to withstand the competition. I'd personally not return to it again, unless someone... More

This little wine bar/restaurant is situated next to the most glamorous baroque movie theatre in Europe. The bar has more than 300 different wines, but unluckily for us the menu only had 1 available menu. It seems one of the cooks had gone home, so they couldn't cook anything, except for one recipe. Even pasta was a bit difficult. We... More

I visited here because of the great choice of wines but ended up returning for a second visit because of the amazing "tapas" starters! The wild boar was very tasty!

This little wine bar was just a couple of blocks away from our hotel, and very well worth visiting. The selection of wines is quite good, and the prices very reasonable. Did not eat there, so can't comment on that. Would propably visit again, if staying in the neighbourhood.

We ordered their whole Tapas selection and a good wine by the glass, followed by a huge cheese platter for LAT 5 that was creatively done, such as the Tapas too. Nice service, a good athmosphere and fine food, we will definetly come again. Prices are very reasonable, we spend less than 30 LAT for an amount of food easily... More

A charming wine bar next to a great art cinema in the center of Riga. Good soups and light fare, with good prices for what you receive.

This would be a place I go if I wanted to have a cup of coffee. Defiantly not for food! Choice of wines were good but there was nothing outstanding. Food quality bad. I had a meat which I even could not chew. For starters we had tapas and these were also average (it means a lot how food looks... More

Fairly good wine bar. Unfortunately, the first wine I choose (white, by the glass) was at room temperature, the other one was finish, so I had to drink another one (good). The "home made potato sticks" were frozen (like McDonald, but maybe frozen at home), so had no taste. Waiters were kind.
