This was the best place we visited whilst in Riga. It's a really cosy little restaurant serving surprisingly good food at really fair prices. It was so good we went back again the next day for lunch. Definitely recommend.

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.

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"

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