Probably the best dinner this year

We had the 9 course tasting menu with the wine pairings. Service was great, it was nice to hear about the food and the background to the entire concept. The food was excellent, with the ostridge tartar really standing out. Wine pairings were thoughtful and innovative. 5/5 altogether! Would... read more

Never enjoyed such a great service and such a good food. The waitresses definitely know their job well and not just a students looking for a temporary job, able to recommend and describe the dishes in a manner giving appetite even before you try or see it.

Where to start? By saying that my wife and I are real foodies and like to be surprised wherever we go? Biblioteka No1 did the job, location and interior are top, staff is friendly and multilingual and the food was a perfect blend of high standard cuisine mixed with local ingredients. An extra plus for the sommelier who choose a... More

I came here on my birthday. The setting and quality of food were great but the overall experience was let down by poor service - they couldn't be bothered to top up our wine which was located in a bucket some way from the table. In the end we had to take our half empty bottle home with us.

I keep meaning to write this review but I wanted to try to get the actual tasting menu from the restaurant before I went there. Sadly I haven’t been able to get a copy, and that for me is the only negative I can really give to the restaurant at all. The setting is delightful and surroundings suitably opulent for... More

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 in the past, and I cannot... More

Our visit to Biblioteka Restaurant was without doubt the highlight of our trip to Riga. This is a Restaurant with a bold,well placed confidence. Latvian cuisine redefined and interpreted with flair and a huge sense of fun and adventure.We had the nine course tasting menu with matching wines. 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!
