Description: Aleks Restaurant opened in February 2011 and is located in one of the buildings with a hundred years old history. Cozy furnishing, personal approach and sincere Latvian hospitality will amuse any time of year.Chefs of the restaurant Aleks created an extraordinary menu. The combination of rustic interior, as well as elements of traditional and modern kitchen, creates unmemorable moments of solitude that can distract you from the big city rush and transfer into a world where you can enjoy the dishes from high quality Latvian products. Wine list geography will surprise with its variety and quality every refined client.

“Great food & friendly staff at a good price (for Riga)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I had 3 a la carte courses - vegetable soup, pork with a sweet sauce and a choclate pudding. All based on traditional Latvian food but with a modern twist which meant they werent so heavy. Washed down by a bottle of unfiltered Latvian beer.

Excellent food and very friendly staff. The best restaurant I visited in my 3 day visit and the cheapest at about €20. I would definitely visit again if I am ever in Riga.

Situated close to the centre of town but away from the main tourist area hence relatively quiet mid-week but with a good atmosphere due to the layout and use of an eclectic mix of furntiure.

“A good meal at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

We found the food here to be delicious and the prices were quite reasonable. The highlight was the black balsam cocktail though - yum!

“Very good, very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Very friendly staff, that cares about the guests! Situated in a very nice place (quiet street, nice Jugendstil-building, a little apart from the tourist area although in the very center of the town). Had an excellent soup (cheese soup) and a good dish (~meat tortellini with white sauce). I would definitely go there if I were in Riga again!
