Had a simple lunch here at the roof top restaurant - nice view and some wind during a hot day made the experience better. Had sallads and a soup with duck ravioli with an excellent white wine - prices affordable and service was ok. Can...imagine this place is wonderful for a dinner, too.More

The first steps outside an elevator put you under impression that this is going to be a good experience - good welcome and fairly luxurious way of things. Then it occurred on me that I am not wearing my usual dinner outfit - just simple...shirt and pants as we're having a weekend getaway and just decided to have some nice food - and this was noted by the staff. Why this is wrong? Well, the staff behaved as if we didn't belong there. Which is a fun mistake on both ends, however, if I was an owner of that place, I'd have a conversation with my staff to NEVER show what they think. They just can't know who this guest is. I wasn't offended, but some people could've been. Now the food. We've ordered an octopus and a steak. Octopus wasn't grilled evenly - the thickest parts were really good, but the thin end deserved an extra 30 seconds. Not bad, but could've been better. Now the steak. It was an entrecote, medium. Part of it was really good, but the thicker end was violet almost surface to surface. I'm not against that, but it wasn't what I was asking for. I've had my share of steaks in some of the best steakhouses in US - what I got at Gutenbergs can't compare to what a steak should be.More

We had a superb dinner - the food was delicious and beautifully served, the service was impeccable. Add the views of the Dome, the rooftops, the river and its easy to see why it can only be described as ideal for any occasion you might...have (and even if there is none, the spirit of celebration is still there).More

This was one of the highlights of our eating out while on a short few days to the beautiful city of Riga! The food was perfectly cooked and the presentation was incredible! My partner Inese had the seared tuna/pork chop and I had the warm...baby octopus to start really good tasted perfect, for mains I had the lamb chops cooked rare and she had the fillet steak again cooked to order perfectly! This is a fantastic restaurant staff were excellent very attentive, the view so beautiful would highly recommend we will be backMore

No breakfast on terrace during winter but at late spring and summer brunch (or very late breakfast) is really enjoyable there. You can even have some drinks to accompany it.
