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.

Sadly we only had one available night to eat here but would gladly have returned and recommend Valtera highly for visitors seeking perfectly cooked and presented modern Latvian eating experience away from the town square bustle. The portions are attractively small and the presentation exquisite. Staff are friendly knowledgeable and helpful. It isn't perfect. We had booked for 8 and they had already run out of several enticing dishes. A little more attention to detail or training on aspects such as when to serve main course wine, replace candles and clear items wouldn't come amiss if aspiring to top ratings. But the combination of the superb ingredients and style, network of small rooms so quieter than many in Riga, and engaging team of staff make this venture well worth seeking out.

This restaurant is exactly for my taste - classy, professional, elegant, sophisticated, quiet!! We visited it in September 2013 and even though it is already May 2014 and we are back in Australia I still remember this dining experience. It doesn't happen often that all categories are so good: service, food, venue etc., but at that place - everything was just perfect!

This restaurant does modern Latvian cuisine, however food seems to be the minor of its concerns.
They have put a lot of efford in the decoration of the restaurant and in the furniture, as a result the atmosphere is very pleasing and minimalistic. Not particularly Latvian though, it's a modern European common style.
Sadly the food wasn't that great at all, as you would expect from that expensive prices.
I would not go again.
