Restaurant is in the center of Riga in the beautiful park interior is very attractive and relaxing. I am always surprised about the service level it's probably best ever I've 'met. Food is delicious and even most demanding could pick a amazing dish. They do have a good wine card and Somelje knows his job Well. Will definitely come back.

Had dinner here last week - food was excellent. Lovely tasting samples served between courses. We were one of the first tables to be served in the restaurant that evening and one of the last to leave. that No pressure at all to be speedy - service was very good and discreet. Lovely view of the park, if you get... More

It was already late afternoon and we were advised to go to this restaurant (she told us it is a middle class restaurant, wondering what the top class would be!!). Very good and very friendly service, appetizer, starters are excellent, main course are very good. Wine by the glass is served by a very friendly sommelier. Excellent value for money,... More

Location - fanatastic, especially in summer, when you can have dinner on terrace. Menu very short, but it will not dissapoint you as all dishes are good. Portions are small, but I would say that this restaurant is more for those that like to enjoy food and have new experiences. Prices are above mid-level for sure, but it worth that.

We had a brunch on a Sunday morning at Biblioteka. I liked the interior and the seating is very comfortable. The brunch buffet was that of a good 5* hotel (incl sushi, oysters, etc). Service was very discreet but impeccable. Although buffet was quite expensive, it was totally worth it. However drinks (non included) were a slight rip-off, although good... More

This restaurant has a nice location facing a park. The restaurant served me a three course dinner. Everything was well prepared and of a high quality. The staff were were helpful. They served wine in half liters which is very convenient if you are dining solo. Probably the best meal I had during my stay in Riga.

This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. Interior design is based around a library - hence the name. It is light, modern and airy with floor to ceiling bookshelves around the wall and much of the seating looks like sofas but at the right height and support for eating from. Menu is comprehensive and food is... More

The restaurant is excellently located in a park and has wonderful views. The interior has a very nice design. Food was very good. The sommelier was excellent. Considering the wonderful food and atmosphere the food is very reasonably priced.

My best compliments to this restaurant. Went there with my best friend, and I must admit it`s one of the nicest places in Riga at the moment. Staff is kind and professional, place is warm and cozy. In terms of menu I would suggest this place more to meat lovers, because out of 10 dishes only 3 is fish (ain`t... More
