We went to Province because we wanted to try some real Latvian cuisine, and Tripadvisor recommended it highly. We were not disappointed! During our dinner (potato pancakes, pork stew - very delicious, cooked with love and attention!) we noticed how the waiter danced around the restaurant, serving around 12-13 tables all on his own - including doing the bills, taking...

Province seems like your regular tourist place, but don't let Those photomenu's fool you. It's a cosy, comfortable restaurant which makes you feel like right at home. The menu offers soms Latvian specialties, make sure you try this fish cakes and THE herring tartar! Would recommend.

The sample tray of... More

A local suggested I try some potato pancakes and came across this place by chance as I was just walking around looking for a place for lunch and it's away from the noisy city centre. Very delicious potato pancakes and it went really well with the salmon and all that for €6.90.

I saw some of the pictures of the dining area and had to stop in. I had the stroganoff and it was very good. Of course in Latvia the beer is a must and really good, almost too good some nights. My co-worker had the black peas which is a traditional/ local dish and he said it was also really... More

Stayed twice at Province Restaurant in February 2014 and had a great time. The food was awesome, the staff more than friendly and I felt welcome every minute. I gladly recommended the place to friends and colleagues staying in Riga and would do so to other tourists. Thank you! Why am I so late with my rating? Well, I simply... More

A fairly good restaurant serving a range of traditional Latvian food. Prices are fine for the old town and the food itself was tasty, but not remarkable. Note our waiter told us that it shares a kitchen with the neighouring restaurant so it probably doesn't matter which of the two you go to!

We ate at this restaurant our first night in Riga, and we loved it! Our waiter was very informative and did a wonderful job with suggesting food and wines. We thoroughly enjoyed everything he suggested, especially the Beef Stroganoff that was delicious. Having dinner at Province was a great way to start our time in Riga.
