Excellent but not cheap

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... read 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

Great food served elegantly in a beautiful spacious surrounding. Beyond the excellent menu, the star was the sommelier who recommended an excellent yet not well known Italian wine made of a grape variety called Lagrein. Poured into a U shape Riedel decanter

A tastefully furnished restaurant in a lovely park in the centre of Riga; the understated Scandinavian interior design, with plenty of room between tables, sets the tone. Service is excellent, professional but not snooty. We didn't choose the set 9 course menu at €60 because it was said to take up to 4 hours. Instead we at a la carte,... More

If you're looking for the foodie experience in Riga ? Step in this one, great location and view and the trendy food place downtown Riga and close to the old part. A lot of good wines, the Prosecco aperitif is really cheap. Plenty of amazing meat and fish starters, main courses and great desserts. Definitively a place for which the... More

A Russian friend said Bibliotheka is number one restaurant in Riga so we had to try it out. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted like in a communist cafeteria: the girl taking our coats and bringing us to our table was uncourteous. Once seated I had to change seat with my wife as the sofa she was sitting in... More

The food was very delicious and presented in and inviting and inventive way, however, something in the service was missing; our waitress did not fully speak English which subtracted affected her presentation of the food....

I had dinner here togheter with three collegues. Food is intermational and served in a nice way. The prices are a bit high, but you get what you pay for. I would recommend this restaurant. It's also quiet without much noise from people and no background music.

Our hotel receptionist (Mercure, Riga) recommended this place as one of the top restaurants in Riga. We decided to go for the "secret" 9-course chef's degustation menu (the entrees were not discslosed prior to being served) and were literally blown away by the presentation, quality and taste of the dishes. The wines were skillfully chosen to enhance the overall culinary... More

We were recommended this place and reserved s table for four adults on saturday evening (need to prebook in weekends). We followed the flow and chose the 9 course menu and suggested wine package. Not a choice for children. That made this a memorable evening, sitting almost four hours by the table, and the time flew. Nice combinations, a lot... More
