Description: Tinto wine restaurant was quite a surprise. It is hidden under massive building right beside, to my mind, the most beautiful cinema in Europa - cinema "Riga". It turned out that Tinto has their own entrance to the cinema which is great thing. The cuisine and service was splendid, as well as their offer of wines. If you are in Riga, i do recommend.

I was here for a lunch with a friend of mine just a few weeks ago. It is situated next to 'Kino Riga' and I assumed it to be a bit of a theater wine bar. We sat outside and had lunch - both choosing to leave the option to the chef we received nice fish flllet, great sauce, sides and great presentation. The food was really unexpectedly good and pricing seems well within most travelers budgets.

I returned for some drinks with colleagues some days later for some beers and wine. The wine drinker in the group let the waiter choose a house wine for her, which, out of all the wine we drank that night she preferred the most.

The place is a little hidden, and thats why i kind of like the space. It is a nice, central spot worth having a good look at - service is awesome for Latvian standards. It is hard for me living in Riga to find dining options i like. I will now need to explore their wine selection more as that is what they appear to specialize in. Food was great though!

It was my first visit to Riga and i got there in the coldest possible weather. But to my joy i got a chance to find a place where i was expected and i got lot of warmth :) The food was great, we not only had good wines but also excellent whiskeys in the end of the meal. So i do suggest to visit this place for anyone visiting Riga.

I was visiting Riga for the 3rd time in last 10 years. Always have been wine lover and this time just by accident, i found a place that fulfilled all my needs. Locations, choice and price. If you like good wine, food and great attitude then Tinto is the right place to choose.
