“A nice place to enjoy a late dinner”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Although Petergailis is one of the oldest restaurants in Riga (opened on 1978) it was my first time there. I visited the restaurant together with several friends and we all remained happy with the meal as well as the drinks (especially worth trying would be cocktails from the Rooster's collection).
It is a classical style restaurant and has a lovely atmosphere created by the nice interior as well as the kind and helpful staff. If you ask for something that has not beed included in the menu, there is a good chance that the chef will create the dish specifically according to your wishes.

“Avoid late dinner”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Arrived at 9 30 on saturday probably this is why we waited a bit and service was slow (though it was not crowded). Food was anyway good and in general the atmosphere was cosy. I am not sure I would recommend it.

Hello,

Thanks for your review.
In casually day we are working as fast as it possible, but there are some meal's who need to take bit longer time to prepare and we think that is the reason why you wait a longer time.

Any way sorry for waiting and if you some other time will be in Latvia, we are waiting you again in our restaurant.

Best Regards
Restaurant "Pētergailis"

“Warm atmosphere”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Nice cosy atmosphere on a cold rainy night. Nice food but not quite as special as other places in Riga old town. Good service.

“Cosy, good value, decent food, pleasant staff”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We enjoyed this restaurant. The food was pretty good without being mega - I would call it genuine and honest value. The staff were very pleasant and there was a really warm, cosy atmosphere.Our starters were more continental ( I had tuna tartare and my friend tian of avocado and prawn) whilst the main courses seemed more local food. We were given a basket with a selection of gorgeous bread at the start.
The meal was very good value - £30 for 2 people for 2 courses including a couple of glasses of local wine. Well worth a visit.
