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

It's not often that we go to a restaurant and come away truly impressed but on the evening we went to Vincents it was nothing short of magical. Superb food with a touch of theatre made the whole experience something really special. The chef Martins Ritins came to talk to us after the meal and all the staff were excellent.... More

We visited this gem of a restaurant shortly before christmas, it was a perfect way to end a weekend in Riga. We were quickly showed to our table in a smaller section of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and well trained. It is the most professional staff we have yet to encounter. Despite the heavy accent, they were... More

After reading the revies here at TA we had high expectations when arriving at Vincents, and we weren't dissapointed. A visit at Vincents is so much more than just a meal - it's a full evening of dining. The service is great, and the waiters have a lot of knowledge about the courses and wines. Many of the courses are... More
