I'd like to inform future travelers that this restaurant has closed. I went through quite some trouble to find it only to realize that the restaurant was permanently closed. A real disappointment, however if you want to try it there's another "Slavu" in Jurmala, about 35 minutes away by train... read more

After some time walking around the old Riga, a group of us decided to have a bite to eat at the Slav restaurant on Valnu Iela. Since it was cold outside, we wanted some hot soup and some a small entrée. I chose the Soljanka, and with it a Kulebjaka (like a big pirogi). The perfect combination for a cold... More

This is a place for hedonistic meals: every bite you take is delightful; the portions are big; the choice is very rich, and even if you don't like Russian cuisine, there are courses to satisfy anyone, I believe. They serve fantastic and various fish. And very tasty dumplings. And I'd also recommend Pozharsky croquettes with rice (a less expensive option,... More

There aren't many Russian restaurants in the world, so when we saw this one, we wanted to try the food. We were surprised by the variety in the food. A bit bland for us but still good.

In my days I have visited many "Russian" places around the world and, in most cases, it was some mixture of local cuisine with what its chefs considered to be "Russian" dishes… But - not here. The place is of medium size, one can see work of good designer – without too many of those “Russian” details like matreoshka and... More

Despite quite a calm evening in town, I was heartened by a large party of Russians in the restaurant. Fantastic Bortsch soup, a slight wait before s wholly fresh and delicious chicken chop. Lovely dessert with Rogan Balsam. We were undercharged as the wine was left off. We pointed this out and were offered double espressos. Even with the wine,... More

Really enjoyed my meal here, had pelmini in chicken broth followed by chicken minister. If you want good honest Russian food then this is the place to go. Good selection of fish dishes also, on some evenings there is a violin player which creates a great atmosphere.

Even though the restaurant is located in the middle of old town you get a feeling of an authentic russian restaurant and not the usual overly tourist style. Menus have plenty of choices and staff seems good in helping you out if youre not familiar with russian cuisine. staff is also attentative which is not that common in riga. Prices... More
