Me and my friend had previously visited Biblioteka twice; in 2013 and 2014. When visiting Riga again, this was the obvious place for us to return to. We this time opted to try the 9 course "Degustation menu", created by their chef, Maris Jansons. This was an exciting and tasteful experience! Service was, as ever, very friendly and informative.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Biblioteka No1 and had the 9 course tasting menu. I ordered in advance one vegan menu for one person and they did a great job with offering a very nice vegan menu. Each course looked excellent and it was a great show with presenting the courses. The presentation of the fish was just amazing!... More

A 9 course tasting menu for 60 Euros, mains for 30 Euros. Very pricy for Riga, cheap if compared to European standards. The interior of the restaurant is just amazing. You literally feel like sitting in you own living room, or as the restaurant tries to Imitate, library. The 9 courses include all amuse bouches and additional courses. Compared to... More

Restaurant Biblioteka No1 - a good place for the Business lunch at the centre of Riga. It is not cheap, but worth of it. Good wine offers to the dishes. We tried sturgeon. It was delicious!

A very elegant setting and beautiful interior. The food is exquisite and one could really call it an 'haute-cuisine' restaurant in Riga. Great for special occasions!

Excellent service from staff, and top notch food. A little expensive, but the dishes was worth it. We also got free appetizers and a free drink at the end. Biblioteka no. 1 extended our expectations.
