I like the idea of going without a reservation to a really fancy restaurant and without having the staff judging you by your jeans and tee-shirt get a table in the middle of the restaurant. its really all down to your behavior. Biblioteka is a fantastic place very precise and fullfiling anybodys fine dining expectations. The staff is very well... 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.

Extremely fine establishment. Tons of compliments to the chef and wait staff. Great atmosphere of an upscale place, but not too formal. 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...

Biblioteka is a high class restaurant serving excellent dishes, well prepared and with some exciting flavours. This is probably the best food in Riga by some way but it is quite an expensive experience. Starters of prawn salad, burrata and tomatoes, mains of veal and a rabbit and foie gras terrine and splendid deserts of hazelnut ice cream and curd... More

We had a fantastic 9 courses menu with the wines, everything went well together and the food was excellent. The service was also very professional and welcomeing.

We were a group of 9, and we enjoyed our dinner at Biblioteka. Great food, excellent service and for sure a place to recommend during any stay in Riga. I can recommend the entrecote by the way...

Had two fantastic meals here. Not cheap with the change to euro, I do wish they had kept Latvian lats. Food was excellent though and there is a lovely atmosphere and hospitality.

Placed right in Vermanes park with a terrace overlooking the park and gardens, we watched the world go by, childrens and dogs play, between the stone lions flanking the terrace. Great food beautifully presented and good wines. Even the olive oil was superb, high quality first pressing flavour. Linen banners floated overhead and seats were comfy cushioned. The perfect setting,... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Biblioteka No1 last week. We found the food absolutely delicious and prepared perfectly. The weather was warm so we ate on the terrace outside and it was not crowded at all. I had the entrecote steak and my partner had dover sole filet style. The steak was very tender and excellent flavour. Equally was the... More

This is one of the few very expensive restaurants in Riga. the food is good but not more, definitely not justifying their prices. The fish was a bit dry and the dessert mediocre. There are many good restaurants in Riga, reasonably priced with better food. Maybe they feel that their excellent location will compensate for the bad value to money.... More
