Description: Valter`s Restaurant boasts a contemporary Latvian cuisine based only on Latvia's own seasonal products such as milk, vegetables, meat, fish, fruit and game coming from local farmers. The restaurant`s interior with Latvian landscapes recalls the simple but elegant country manor where every visitor can feel not as a customer but a long-awaited guest. The restaurant's concise menu is as changeable as nature itself. One of the founders of our Latvian kitchen - chef Valters Zirdzins creates new original recipes as soon as farmers offer new products and a new hunting and fishing season starts.

“Superb Cozy Restaurant”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food was cooked to perfection. The service was really fantastic, by far the best customer service experience I had in any of the Baltic countries. The waiter was very friendly and knew the menu well and what to recommend. The decoration and the fact they use local igredients are plus points. Mind you, if you are vegetarian you might not be fully satisfied, the vegetarian starter was good, but the main could have been a bit more inventive.

“Nice, high quality food from local ingredients”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is a new restaurant opened and owned by the chef himself. The idea of the restaurant is to prepare new kind of dishes from locally produced ingredients and it works great. The food is fresh and very well made, portions are really big, at least for main dishes and dessert they were. Self-made bread served at the start was just fantistic as well!

One thing lacking still is a bit more personal touch, considering the prices of the restaurant, the size and that we were almost the only customers at that time, a little compliment or greeting from the chef would have helped us feel more welcome, but still I am giving this place 5 stars because it has only recently opened and I know that the chef is a real cookaholic, so I wish him all the best for this project to succeed.

“Modern Latvian Cuisine”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Its a nice unpretentious place in the heart of Riga, nothing too fancy, but food is really good, not amazing, but really good. Starters & desserts are better than mains, at least from what I tasted. Menu changes every couple of days, so you wount get bored if you'll go there frequently. Head Chef of the restaurant is a nice, polite and intelligent guy. Place definitely has good potential! I would say - try it!
P.S. Not expensive at all, even for locals!
