I have noting bad to say about the food, it was really good. But way too expensive compared to what you can get in other, better, restaurants in Riga.

This is a five-star experience, with excellent service in a fantastic environment. The food was very local and of local ingredients - which in some cases was a bit challenging with very unique flavours -... More

I had my first dinner at Biblioteka in Riga and it was outstanding. The food was fabulous. I had rack of lamb (I ended up having rack of lamb 3 nights in a row and theirs was the best!). The service was delightful. I absolutely recommend Biblioteka.

We chose the degustation menu - 9 courses at EUR 70 - is a bargain for the quality and creativity merged with great taste and beautiful presentation.The restaurant was full, however they manage to cope; the service was...
