I will use the same phrase about Riviera as the former Minister of Finance, Mr. Atis Slakteris used in his interview with Bloomberg in 2008 about Latvian economy: Nasing spesal! (Nothing special). Riviera is the same - Nothing special. It is actually is quite average and not exciting.
- Price level.
- Menu of the season. The chanterelles menu was interesting, and reflects Latvian products in a great way.
- Size of portions.
- The service level. Kind and friendly waiter, but slow - so slow! I understand that the kitchen had a lot to do on a Saturday evening, but no need to use so long time to get us a beer.
- Maybe I am really spoiled, but the food I got at Riviera was not exciting at all. For main dish I had the Riviera grill mix, and most of the meat was overcooked. The barbecue sauce tasted a bit like a spicy tomato soup..
All in all I am surprised that Riviera is ranked to be the 6th best restaurant in Latvia. (Not by Tripadvisor though).
