“Very good restaurant, price as you can expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've been there for a dinner with friends, that was as well as business dinner. The restaurant is not formal at all, and has a nice veranda, when the wheather allows it. Food at a very high level of quality, wine list a little bit too expensive (I mean, no choices for average quality wines, the entry level being a Barolo.....!). Anyway, wellworth a dinner.

“Disaster in Riga”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Nice restaurant, nice soroundings and nice personnel, but there ut stops with a crash. We ordered a table at 8.30, and was seated half an hour later. From there on things went fairly well, until we had finished the starter. After nearly one hour of waiting for the main course, our waiter (who suddely appeared) told us that we would have to wait 10 more minutes. On stumbling into him some 15 minutes later, he told us that we will have to wait some 15 minutes more. 30 minutes after that we cancelled the whole thing, paid our bull (no tip), went on foot to our hotel, bought a sandwich in our lobby restaurant and went to bed. Unless you are extremely patient - go somewhere else than Riviera! By the way, we have been to all parts of the world, but we have not experienced anything like this - thank God!!!!!!!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

By far the best restaurant in Riga city. I am going there frequently. Quality products are served almost all the time. The bread basket basket is splendid. They have the best marzipan cake in town.
The service is beyond expectation. One time two gentlemen came in, sat down at a neighbouring table. One of them had a loose button on his jacket. He asked the hostess if she would have something to sew it. She said alright took his jacket and came back 10 minutes later with the button fixed on his jacket. What else is there to be said, many of us don't get service even at home.

“Nice interiors, good food, subnormal staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Pluses: very nice interiors, good location, attractive dishes served in an esthetic way, high-quality food for a moderate price, towels in the restroom instead of paper/hand dryer

Minuses: the waiter served us the starters and after a long time he came to ask about dessert&coffee... He forgot about our main courses! Inexcusable in a restaurant of such high standard
