This was the second time we had visited this restaurant. On this occasion the owner/chef was very visible visiting every table in the full restaurant at least twice. The "amuse bouches" wereamazing and reflected in part the time he had spent with Heston Blumenthal with the use of dry ice at the table as well as blow torches for melting... More

Every aspect of the dining experience was faultless. From the reception to the final surprise with the Pandora's box of chocolates to complete our meal. You simply cannot visit Riga without eating at this world class restaurant.

This is a high cost restaurant, make no mistake about it. However, we felt it was worth it. Extremely good service, nice little "snacks" in between the courses, a chef that came out twice to make sure we were happy and of course very good food. We felt the chicken lacked a little in flavour, other than that - excellent.

The atmosphere is very nice, the restaurant has different rooms all modern yet cosy decor. All items on the menu are very tempting, the service is very attentive, the food tastes excellent and is presented with great attention to detail. The mango sorbet prepared in front of us was amazing.

The doyen of restaurants in Riga is clearly not resting on its laurels. Excellence is the key word in all departments. Food is succulent and superbly presented. Top notch wines. Service purrs like a Rolls Royce. Touches like the palate cleanser made using liquid nitrogen add a touch of fun, not that the ambience is anything other than casual elegance.... More

Although one may be worried that an establishment that has been around for so long would have collected dust, rest assured, Vincents is as vibrant as it is young, innovative and fun. Service is of the highest standard, formal but friendly and playfull (thank you Kaspars) so are some of the dishes (think liquid nitrogen). All courses are precise, of... More

This is a place where dinner is not just served, it is celebrated. Staff go out of their way to make your visit a lasting memory and the master himself (Vincent) will serve you his amuse gueule... The lobster bisque was the best one I ever had and to cut your Jamon (excellent!) they bring a big machine to your... More

It is not a regular lunch or dinner, it is even not a fancy dinner. It is kind of an adventure tour in the world of gastronomy and gourmands. Many cuisines are represented, like Molecular cuisine, Slow Food, Organic... Yes, costly, but not overpriced for food and service you will get. Atmosphere is not stiff, it is cozy enough, waiters...
