I visited with a friend, though it's a great place also for a formal / business dinner. The food and service were excellent but what made it really special was the location & ambience. The restaurant is also very central, making it a great spot to meet.

The service is excellent and the location is superb unfortuntatly the degustation menu was below our expectations. I mean nothing terrible but starters were too monotone (always some kind of cold mousse). The two main course on the other end were excellent. We found desserts still on a good level but pls change the presentation of the last course ,... More

Had a private dinner at the Maestro Hall while there on business. Service and presentation were great, while the selection of Italian wines was great too. We had a selection among fish and lamb, and both had been delicious.

This was a real highlight of our trip to Riga. Lovely setting for the restaurant, stylish decor, friendly staff and relaxed vibe to the restaurant. Most importantly the food is excellent too. Really good vegetarian choices too, essential for me and not always easy to find in Latvia.

Go for the 9-course 'degustation' menu and you will not be disappointed. Already the setting (in the park) and the service (our waiter at least) are perfect - which can not be said for all restaurants in Riga, where we found the food good but the staff moody and unfriendly, but that aside. Bibliotheka number 1 is really # 1.... More

Great menu, excellent presentation, wonderful taste. Good selection of French and Italian wines. Tried tuna carpaccio, eel&foie gras (eco-friendly eel?), extraordinary, then continued with marensin chicken an duck breast. Ended meal with a superb fondant.

Classy all the way. The locals seem to rate it as the finest restaurant in Riga, and we found it to be excellent. Seafood and beef both very good, burrata was a stand out, dessert excellent, and a range of amuse bouche were welcome. Not cheap, but worth it.
