“Excellent choice”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We decied to try this restaurant, after all the good reviews on tripadvisor. And we were not dissappointed at all. The food is excellent, the service is very good, and the prices is reasonable. Especially when you get high quality food. It is located a few minutes outside the tourist area, but it is worth the taxitrip. Highly recommended.

“Deserves to be no 1”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

It's quite a walk out of the centre of town but well worth it. The concept of the restaurant was explained upon our arrival but even that didn't prepare us for the quality and diversity of the food on offer. Small plates were cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable. Probably the most rewarding culinary experience I've ever had.

“Very special family dinner”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Several days ago we had my Mom's birthday celebration at SV International, so I'd made reservation a day before. On arrival we found complimentary bottle of wine with "birhday wine" label. Moreover, all napkin holders were decorated with special stickers "Happy Birthday, (my Mom's name)", that was so plesant and made the dinner very special. So i wanna thank the staff for attention to details:)
As for me the concept of small dishes is an interesting idea, you can try different types of food at once. Especially it is easy for ladies and everybody who prefer to control calories.
All of us chose different items from seafood menu, that were fresh and tasty. As for desert I had wonderful pineapple ravioli and creme-brulee for others. And a bottle of pinot grigio.

I highly recommend SV Int. for special occasions and family dinners.

“Excellent for special occasions or foodies”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I won't claim this is the best restaurant in Riga, but it is very good. The location could be seen both as a downside and as a plus because it is somewhat removed from the center and it is situated at an old apartments block. This eliminates large crowds though. Food-wise it is pretty good - on a pricy side, but it makes up for it in taste and presentation. Fine balance in dishes and for my foreign friends as well as for me it was fun to eat there and try various things as the portions are small and you are encouraged to order lots (a bit like tapas style), but continental and Russian (or so) food. Would certainly recommend and return.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Great atmoshere, good food and really welcomming service. The concept of small dishes was to our taste, though we did not manage more than two + dessert. Food was of high quality and prices was pleasant for a norwegian.
