The waiters were attentive and patient from the moment we stepped into the restaurant till the very end of our course. We had a 30 euro chef's set which we booked through email (they were very responsive to emails, and I think you can order without reserving in advance too). It had a total of 7 courses inclusive of dessert.... More

We had an awesome meal at International SV. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. My husband told them so when he made the reservations. They had a special table prepared for us with rose petals, candles and special napkin rings. We had the 6-course set price tasting dinner for 30 Euro. It was amazing from start to finish. The...

Food: We had chef's 6 course tasting menu and 3 courses from a la carte. This was a rare case when all dishes with no exceptions were perfectly delicious. The highlights were beef cheek, Zander fillet and Latvian ostrich tartare. The tenderness of the beef cheek and the freshness of the ostrich tartere were amazing. Overall the use of local... More

Considering the small amount of choices you have for good restaurants in Riga, this was quite decent. The staff was competent, suggested us a good wine, and was really keen on describing it qualitatively. So the idea of the menu is to order more than one plate, because they are served in quite small portions. Which can lead to a... More

We visited International during a weekend in Riga. Not close to fine dining what so ever- OK food to a good price.. The staff was great, our waiter was a nice fellow with his heart at the right place. Some courses on the tasting menu, like the ostrich tartare, was really great. Unfortunately we had higher expectations for the food... More

This is an average restaurant with too high prices for what food you get. The service was however good which is a plus! Don't take the gazpacho!

This was advertised fairly high here at Trip advisor, however this is a place which can be described with one word - tiny. Place is tiny, comes from the owner's huge hunger for revenue. Seats are more suitable for kindergarten than for a restaurant claiming for high attention and high checks. Portions are tiny and explanation is hilarious (or insulting)... More

My girlfriend (a Rīga local) and I have been searching for a restaurant in this city to have as our "fine dining" place of choice. We chose to visit International based not only on the strength of its TA reviews, but more particularly because of its innovative and enticing menu. From the moment we sat down to the moment we...
