Description: Aleks Restaurant opened in February 2011 and is located in one of the buildings with a hundred years old history. Cozy furnishing, personal approach and sincere Latvian hospitality will amuse any time of year.Chefs of the restaurant Aleks created an extraordinary menu. The combination of rustic interior, as well as elements of traditional and modern kitchen, creates unmemorable moments of solitude that can distract you from the big city rush and transfer into a world where you can enjoy the dishes from high quality Latvian products. Wine list geography will surprise with its variety and quality every refined client.

We stayed at Justus hotel and as we came very late on first evening, we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. And glad that we did: food was tasty and provided great local flavors, service was fast and really nice, prices were reasonable already as standard but hotel guests get 20% off which made dinner price really cheap.

We were not staying at the Hotel Justus but were walking Riga all day and Crystal decided that the menu here looked interesting. O/K maybe we just ordered well and got a great bottle of wine but it was amazing and the "Smokey Cheese Soap" was to die for. There was nothing that we ordered that we did not like,... More

Didn't actually eat here but it was part of hotel Justus we stayed at... We only had the breakfasts but if rest of food is judged by this then it must be worth a try... They also do 5 euros main meal offer from 12-3 mon to fri which sounds a bargain

Nice cosy restaurant serving tasty traditional food. The service is friendly and helpful, but be ready to spend some time as food preparation does take rather long even if the restaurant is empty.

Yesterday we went out for a dinner with my boyfriend and spent a really nice time there. We ordered caramelized pork with grilled vegetables.There were people inside and when new clients received food faster than, we started thinking cook forgot about us. Then we received our portions and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. Pork was prepared excellently,... More

Second day in Riga, and Aleks is not a culinary highlight. Duck overdone, scallops not tasty. Staff is very young and not experienced. They hardly know what figures on the wine list. There are certainlu better adresses in this city.

As we only had breakfast here it was ok. the hot choices of egg dishes and bacon looked as if cooked for a while I only had cheese, breads and preserves. As before you can order omellette or porridge. No one told you. By chance seen a note on the way into restaurant and got porridge day before i left-good.

The restaurant is attached to the Justus Hotel and serves a very nice breakfast. I also went for dinner. I had the starter of peach carpaccio with parma ham and raspberry sauce. It was a variation on th fruit-with-parma-ham theme that was inventive without being goofy. I really enjoyed it. For the main course I had the roasted duck breast... More
