Went there for our wedding anniversary and decided to have the tasting menu along with the vines. We are 'foodies' so we wanted to be surprised and have something special. The food was really good and even the goat cheese dish was nice (we both normaly don't eat goat cheese). And later on they had adjusted one of the desserts... More

Visited with my fiancee for a romantic date night. We both left somewhat dissatisfied. Out waiter was pretty rude and arrogant. Food wasn't great either, but that might be more of a personal preference, and I wouldn't mind or be bothered much, if the waiter wasn't so unpleasant.

We stayed in Riga one night as my best man, Maximillion Cooper of the Gumball Rally, was treating as to dinner. The service was exceptional and the staff were so friendly and polite. We started with a 2002 RD Bollinger champagne which was superb. Then I had the aubergine starter followed by lamb chops. Both were very delicious. As a... More

We just loved this place. The location overlooking the park is perfect, the interior design interesting and cosy without being "showroom formulaic". The service from the first greeting to the farewell was exceptional. Our waitress was charming and well informed and the sommelier took it as a personal mission to serve quality glasses of wine with our different a la... More

Great service, added food compliments between meals and amazing mustard bread. I defiantly recommend this. I ordered two starters, which was more than enough.

Good restaurant with great food. we took picks form the cart rather than a fixed 9 dishes menu. Good choice! I took the foie gras as starter, the lamb chops as principal and creme catalan as dessert. The dessert and was the only weak point. The service was good, although our young waitress had a certain disdain on his demeanor,... More

Our local general manager recommended this restaurant. So we spent a good evening in Biblioteka. The food was good and tasty. The ambient nice. An extensive wine list. We were there with locals.

The no1 gastronomic restaurant in Riga, with good service and some of top wines in the list. If you are used to traveling with the Michelin guide - don't expect much. The food is over salted, some combinations are questionable. Although it is still the place to eat in Riga.

Thank Anton R
