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

What an excellent place this was, simply amazing! We decided to try the tasting menu and were not disappointed. The whole experience was perfect, food and wine wonderful and the service very friendly. The sommelier was exceptional. Amazing wine choices! Some of the best wines that we have ever tasted (and that is a lot). Highly recommended if you are... More

One of the reasons why I really like this place is not only the food or lovely interior but the wine menu as this is the place where I for the first time tasted my absolutely favorite wine in the world.

We went with a group of 8, and did the tasting menu. I am a vegetarian and they were more than accommodating to adjust mine, without compromising the meat aspect for the group. The atmosphere/ambiance was very scenic and romantic as well. Every course of the five-course tasting menu was outstanding and the waitress' knowledge of each item was very... More

Visited this restaurant in December of 2014 while on holiday for New Year. There is a lot to like about this restaurant. The service was exceptional for a start. We were made to feel very welcome and the waiting staff served us quickly and efficiently, but without being overbearing. The décor was also good, although we were round the corner... More
