Surprised to see a restaurant like this in Riga. O.k, not in center, but its not a problem. Nice terrace, I would add some music though. Small portions, but cheap prices, that is the point. Try the octopus carpaccio, wellington, fish rolls, crab and pineapple ravioli. Not exclusive but nice wines and o.k cocktails. Would suggest more non-alcoholic cocktails for my kids.

They have a great service but the food is quite small for a normal guy. The value for money is also low. We had 4 types of meat and the meet was without taste and it was very gummy, you had to chew on it for a long time, I liked the experience but it was not worth the money.

Dear Guest,

Thanks a lot for your review. We value every comment. We wish you could inform our waiters about the meet quality, which has to be always at an excellent level. It is hard to believe that every single type of meet was gummy, but if so we are really sorry we did not solve this situation on the spot. All in all we are happy that you liked the experience and surprised to see that you found us expensive. It is a pleasure to be compared by you to Noma, but I believe we are much more simple and relaxed restaurant, as well many times cheaper.

Nevertheless, if you visit Riga again we are always happy to see you at International SV :)

Best regards,

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at International on Saturday 25 May. I booked on-line and had immediate confirmation back. My husband and I started off with a cocktails - great selection of cocktails. We ordered 6 different dishes that we shared - snails, salmon/avo tartare, pasta with fish, slow cooked pork, ox cheek and fillet steak. In one word fantastic - all of them! We ended off with the pineapple ravioli and the crème caramel - what can I say it was just amazing. The total bill came to £67 (included a bottle of lovely South African wine and 2 glassed desert wine). Great value for money for top quality food. Our waitress for the evening was Alexandra. She was so charming, friendly and tended to every need. Her food suggestions were also spot-on. You made our evening very special Alexandra - thank you! I highly recommend this restaurant.

We attended this place at Sunday afternoon and had possibility to choose place where to sit. Waiter was so unbelievable patient with us. As day was cold and we wanted to sit outdoor (interior is really nice but if possible - take place outside as feeling was like somewhere in small town (lot of air, green and songs of birds)). We had gas heater close to our table and feeling of comfort let enjoy outdoor staying. Can say that service we had was one of the best I got on my life - we really felt like very welcoming guests). Food was very tasteful and fresh (soup of chestnuts was just excellent! never had so tasteful before) . Yes, portions are small but after meal you can still breath. Coffee is very good (and not expensive, have to say much cheaper than in similar places in Riga, unbelievable).
