My first time having Russian dinner and I have to say that I enjoyed it. This place definetely seems authenic with the lights full on in the ceiling and a lot of Russianspeaking guests. As we were there on a Friday night they also had live music as entertainment. I can recommend all the meals I had: the fetacheese rapped... More

Sunday evening, restaurant almost empty.....not good sign. It was my first feeling when I entered the room. I ordered the most expensive soup (Czarist fish-soup) and the most expensive fish dish: Sturgeon Moscow style. The soup wasn't bad but I expected some more out of it: there were pieces of fish (two types) and potato in the broth. The second... More

This Russian/Latvian restaurant is on the edge of the old town.My meal consisted of fish soup with meat pastry,chicken dissolves with mashed potatoes and tomatoes,Apple pie with ice cream and a diet coke.That cost a very reasonable 24.50 euros.Service was fine and the restaurant was quite elegant.It was a pleasant meal

Pros: Interior decor, taste of the meals, and large portion size. Cons: High prices. This restaurant moved to a new location in 2015, between hotel Astor and McDonald's. Restaurant offers Russian and French cuisine. The interior resembles a 19th century Russian mansion. At around 4 pm there was only one other guest in the restaurant. He kept ordering shots of...

The lunch menu was great. Traditional food (Latvian / Russian mix). Very fair prices, 5 of us ate for €30 total. Good staff too, very attentive & friendly.

A previous review says that this restaurant has permanently closed, but it must have recently reopened as we stumbled upon this lovely restaurant two nights ago. The waiter was fantastic, and his attention to detail was excellent. The food itself was delicious, with lots of choice on the menu. The price was fair, being approx 30 euros per person for... More

I'd like to inform future travelers that this restaurant has closed. I went through quite some trouble to find it only to realize that the restaurant was permanently closed. A real disappointment, however if you want to try it there's another "Slavu" in Jurmala, about 35 minutes away by train from Riga

After some time walking around the old Riga, a group of us decided to have a bite to eat at the Slav restaurant on Valnu Iela. Since it was cold outside, we wanted some hot soup and some a small entrée. I chose the Soljanka, and with it a Kulebjaka (like a big pirogi). The perfect combination for a cold... More

This is a place for hedonistic meals: every bite you take is delightful; the portions are big; the choice is very rich, and even if you don't like Russian cuisine, there are courses to satisfy anyone, I believe. They serve fantastic and various fish. And very tasty dumplings. And I'd also recommend Pozharsky croquettes with rice (a less expensive option,... More
