What a surprise! During a conference in Riga I had to organize a dinner for a small group of people and got Vincent recommended by the hotel. We booked a table though the hotel and you properly have to do that. Arriving at the restaurant, we got a glass of champagne and a very nice “snack” before we went to... More

One of the best meals of my lifetime. Choose the chefs selection. A great value with unexpected, artistic, delicious food and elegant service. Better than any meal I have had in New York, London, San Francisco, Hong Kong, or Chicago. Bravo!

Outstanding service and the quality of the food was first class, from starter all the way through to dessert. It bewilders me why this place doesn't have a Michelin star.

i've been to Vincents tonight. We had a reservation for 9PM. They are open until 10PM. They are located downtown, close to the hotels. The food was great, creative, tasty and very flavoury. Their menu has many options for all sorts of tastes (http://www.restorans.lv/en/menu/dinner_menu/). They have a great wine list and a Fantastic dessert menu. We ended up choosing two... More

I enjoyed the food. Although the portions were on the small side, there were several of them. They had been done with care. Go here for a special night with your special one.

Took my girl out for a celebration and this was a really good experience. Everything from choices to the wine depending on what we decided to eat, to the meal is self which was outstanding and just perfect. I had a steak that melted in the mouth and my girl had sea scallops which was really nice prepared with a... More

What a great experience. Didn't know what to expect but had the best meal. Wonderful staff explained each course and the attention to detail was spot on. Even brought out a cake as an unexpected surprise. Outstanding quality and service...fine dining at its best. Not to be missed if you're in Riga.

Vincents was one of the very first fine dining restaurants in post-Soviet Latvia. Opened by the renowned chef Mārtiņš Rītiņš, it has prospered ever since. Guests have included royalty and major celebrities, and countless chefs in Latvia have begun their careers at Vicents. My last meal there was last autumn in the companionship of a dear friend who was once... More

We went with a group of 10 and all had the same menu and asked for wine paring. We started with two different champagnes to start with before dinner. When the sommelier notices there were some people who are really interested in wine he had us taste the wine blind with each course. That was a really nice way of... More
