“Extremely good!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

So, after talking about a visit for a long time we finally made it there, and what a disappointment, not about the visit in itself, that was great. But what a disappointment that we didn't visit it earlier :)

The restaurant is in the silent center of Riga (a few minutes walk from Old City), which is an area with plenty of good restaurants and Riviera is certainly one of them.

The restaurant is Mediterranean with a lot of seafood on the menu. The food arrived very quickly and the quality was above all expectations. Simply among the best found so far in Riga. What should also be mentioned regarding the food was the size of the portions. They were enormous, our main courses could easily be shared by two persons. So an advice is to not go for 3 courses, 2 is more than enough. Considering the quality and the size of the portions the prices are very good.

The service was very attentive, quick and pleasant. Nothing to complain about and good recommendations when asked for it.

Can certainly recommend this restaurant as I myself will return again and again and again.

“positively surprised”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Went to the restaurant in October for a business dinner with a colleague. The place was almost full, but we have been served astoundingly quickly - starters within max ten minutes after placing orders. My American colleague who has seen a share of restaurants all over the world, said it was the best Ceaser salad she has tasted in years. Entire menu (not very long, but having everyting from fish soupt to salmon and beef represented generously) looked tempting; we had beed wellington and salsa salmo with greens. It was delicious and fast served and priced about 25% less than I expected from place of such range. Do book a table if you plan to come, their fame is spreading. I would certainly return with my husband to taste those deserts we did not have place to accommodate any more.
