This is one of these places you do not need to visit often (unless money is not an issue you for you) but the experience we had there was excellent and full of surprises. I recommend this to you but be sure that it will cost a lot.

This is an elegant restaurant with some fabulous touches such as the sorbet prepared at the table, and the flambé treat. I was not thrilled with my fish dish, and the rest of the meals were good but not fabulous so I think there's more flash than substance here, but it's still a lovely place with excellent service.

Our expectations were set fairly high for Vincent based on the very good reviews on tripadvisor and elsewhere. Sadly Vincent did not deliver this time. The service was good, food average(for price), and a hint of exaggaration with layout details(grinding the spices for your own dish, dessert ice cream served on a large ice cube etc.). The appertizers( from day's... More

On the occasion of my partner's birthday we dined here during our trip through the baltic states. Had there been a Michelin guide for Latvia this restaurant would certainly merit a star, or even two. We took the 5 course tasting menu with matching wines. It was great! So many delicate tastes and imaginative dishes. Main dish was a surf... More

Very unique dining experience with excellent service and creative presentation of dishes. The mushroom soup with ingredients foraged from the forests of Latvia was full of flavor and character; the canolli - crabmeat wrapped in avacado - and the langostinos were also fabulous starters; between dishes we engaged in smashing dried fruits in liquid nitrogen then mixed with sorbet -...

We had a fantastic experience at Vincent's with the full set menu. Staff and chef were very attentive and professional. Each course presented a new lovely surprise, and fantastic flavor combinations. This is the one restaurant to visit in Riga and well worth the cost.

Even though the atmosphere and restaurant design isn't the fanciest, the food is the true star. An absolute treat and as foodies we loved it. Lots of table side romance and hocus pocus. But at the same time the food delivers on taste and value. Very nice.
