One of the best meals I've ever had.

We had the tasting menu, and the food was fantastic. Every course was presented in a well thought out - and often highly unusual manner. The wine package was a good compliment to the food itself, and the service was excellent as well. This was as good as Michelin starred restaurants I have visited... read more

Each course displayed imagination and top class culinary excellence. Ostrich,Sturgeon and the... More

In summary, one of the very finest dining experiences I've ever had; absolutely world class. Even before you enter Biblioteka, the surroundings are very comfortable and inviting. Set in parkland, the restaurant is easy to find, close to the old centre of Riga. Inside, the decor is very mellow and pleasant, modern and comfortable. We were warmly greeted on arrival,... More

If you would like to get very good food and don't care too much about the budget - that place is for you (full dinner with some drinks will be about 70 - 80 EURO per person which is about 30% premium over average place in Riga). Try their seafood and desserts - I noticed a lot of positive reviews... More

This place has excellent food! If you ever visit Riga you should definitely save one night for a dinner at this restaurant. The food was impeccable, good wine and really good service the whole evening. I also liked the interior, modern classy!

We had nine course tasting menu and everything was ecxellent. Usually some courses are good and some excellent and some not so good. But they did surprise us by showing what was included to the dish. Homemade horseradish vodka with nordic herring, Sea buckthorn in dessert. excellent service but book your table beforehand.

Absolutely brilliant place to eat. The food was mostly local, Latvian fusion with modern European cuisine. The great food has its price: this is not a cheap place for budget travellers. Modern ambiance, very polite waiters, good wine.

My girlfriend took me to Biblioteka No 1 for my birthday. From outside the restaurant looked much fancier than anything I was expecting. Inside we were warmly greeted at the reception and given a reservation for later in the evening. The selection of food was extraordinary, modern and creative. Our highlight was the red deer tartar with smoked beetroot sauce.... More

This restaurant is outstanding in all terms. Our waiter was a pure joy and was extremely helpful. Menu is not very long, but selection is fantastic. As a welcome from the chef we were offered beef tartar - delicious! As a starter I had tuna tartar, as a main - braised goose leg and creme brûlée to crown the feast.... More
