This is the only restaurant in Riga that has everything a good restaurant has to have. Nice atmosphere. Glamour cosy interior. Gourment high quality food. Perfect service. Good value for money. The best choice for dinner with important business partners or special occasion or just to have a special night out.

I went twice in two days - the first in my hotels recommendation and the second because a friend wanted to dine there. Both times I had the 5-course degustation menu @60euro. The menu items were different each day except for dessert which the kindly changed for me. The plates were perfectly presented and a nice mixture of seafood and... More

In my opinion one of TOP3 restaurants in Riga. Ostrich tartare - you must try, really amaizing experience. Nice Lobster and deserts which finish the Evening. Wine list impressive - excellent Valpolicella Amarone!

Went there at lunch time for business lunch. Outstanding cuisine and superbe presentation of the dishes. Unexpected italian wine list with excellent choice in all italian regions. Perfect service of the wine. Not cheap but definitively worth to do it.

Outstanding food and service. A wonderful selection of continental and local fare. Amazing deserts. Good wine list. Waiter was knowledgable, pleasant and helpful. Surroundings were modern but comfortable. We had a great time and a great dinner.

Came here for dinner as a treat. The service was excellent; attentive but not intrusive. Very kind and witty waiter. The food and wine was excellent, and not as expensive as you would expect for such an establishment. Would definitely recommend.

Have had the pleasure of dining here multiple times in the last few years, and Biblioteka never let it's promise down. The atmosphere inside is great during dark winternights and sitting on the terrace in the summertime is very nice. Without screaming it out loud, this is one of the most highest class restaurants in the city, thus it's personell... More

Unfortunately we visited this restaurant with a group of 15 pax. We booked ahead, so they knew we are coming and the restaurant was not full... but still the service was extremely slow, we had to choose only from very tight group menu (with no exceptions). Also our waiter was quite arrogant+rude. It was expensive and we did not receive... More

If you want to impress a date or a client, take them here. Not only is the architecture impressive, not only is the presentation impressive, but the food is impressive. We ate on the outdoor terrace which is surrounded by massive silk curtains. They are color changing illuminated by some very clever designer. Well, actually the restaurant is owned by... More

The atmosphere inside this "Library" is posh, but in a very good way with some really cool furniture and design if you're into that sort. Staff was utterly and totally professional and spoke the best English I have ever experience in eastern-Europe. Great food too, highly recommended.
