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.

The idea of using organic food from local suppliers and slow cooking sounds good and I believe that all the food we got last week in this restaurant, that is ranked #1 in Latvia by most media, was organic. That organic matter could be a main possible reason for comparatively very, very high prices we paid for our meals, because... More

Our original reservation was cancelled by the restaurant perhaps 2 hours in advance - bummer. But we rebooked for the next night and were glad that we did not hold a grudge. The chef visits each table, and apologized to us personally for the delay in our visit. Each dish is served with flourishes and ceremony, including the bread and... More

Vincents is still the best gourmet restaurant in the Baltics. It is my second time here, and I had expected the menu to have developed a little bit. The amuse bouche was really nice, served by the head chef himself. All the meat cuts are presented on the table and very nicely explained by the waiters. Wine menu is amazing,... More

People say that Vincents is the best Restaurant in Riga, and I agree. This time I had salmon (as compliment of the house); Mottra sturgeon caviar, paired with toasts and butter, and perfectly served; fried zucchini flowers with crab meat filling; cod from Faroe Islands; dessert. All dishes, as usual, were very good and artfully presented; excellent the wines (Champagne... More
