You simply must experience. Service level and menu is absolutely top top level. We took the testing menu with recommended wine package, and stayed in heaven,- even long after saying farewell......

We went here on a rainy evening in June. Thus we chose a table inside. The restaurant is situated in a very nice park and if weather conditions allows I am convinced that outside seating can be fantastic. It is a high end restaurant aiming to be the best in Riga. It is for sure the best I have tried... More

Came for a business dinner, for which the place is brilliant. Atmosphere is great, very good service, food is good, perfect location. The menu is nicely revisited Baltic cuisine with local ingredients. Portions are on the "light" side. This is an elegant restaurant. I gave a very good because this place is above average (in general terms), but at the... More

Staff invited us friendly. Beware!!! They are misleading on purpose. The staff couldn't tell the price of a glass of wine. We had to ask several times. We thought it could be expensive. They were vague about the price. At the end they said 'maybe 8-10 euros for a glass'. They didn't want to give us a winelist or menu.... More

We had some family celebration at Bibioteka and it was very nice. It was a nice day and we were seated on the terrace. It was really beatiful there. The food was good, too. My appetiser, combination of foie gras, eel and porcini was bold but it worked. All in all, everything was nice, but quite pricy, too.

We asked to book a place for dinner, and were advised this place by the hotel we stayed in. I did like the ambience and the interior, service ok. Very dissapointing is the food - typical place for tourists anywhere you would go. Nothong special, we left hundry and ordered the sandwich with wine from the room-service. Would not recommend...

We were a group of 13 guests who had the 9 course degustation menu. The food was fabulous. The sommelier had suggested a matching 5 glass wine menu which was an excellent match with the food and an experience in its own right. The staff members were friendly and very attentive. The place was beautiful. All in all I can... More

The place is at the very center of Riga, so easily reachable by anyone. The most important advice - don't drive there yourself, the wine menu is very good and after enjoying that, for sure you will not be able to drive anymore. The food is excellent - creative and of high quality, but most importantly, delicious. In addition, the... More

We booked this restaurant based on trip advisor feedback and went in with high expectations. While it was ok, even good the whole experience didn't blow us away. I've rated it as average, but to be fair it's better than average, it's good, but there is no option for good. It was by far the most expensive place we at... More
