Good place to try Russian food

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.

A previous review says that this restaurant has permanently closed, but it must have recently reopened as we stumbled upon this lovely restaurant two nights ago. The waiter was fantastic, and his attention to detail was excellent. The food itself was delicious, with lots of choice on the menu. The price was fair, being approx 30 euros per person for... More

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 from Riga

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

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.
