“Delicious food splendidly presented!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were taken here by relations of my sister-in-law who said it was a hidden gem and they were right on target! Extensive menu of both fish and meat with a few vegetarian options and pasta. Extensive wine list, spot on service, lovely ambiance, all right on the water overlooking a port for cruise ships. Highly recommended! By the way, we had two courses, either a salad or dessert for each of us, a bottle of water and also of white wine and the total bill with generous tip was about $150.

“Stunning view of the marina in a super environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

The kitchen is good, so is the wine; sitting outside is very pleasant; prices are reasonable but service is very slow

“Eat&enjoy beautiful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Tasty menu, but the main bonus is the location - view to the blue channel and white yachts. Even in the rainy september day - in the outdoor seating it was cosy and nice.

“Hidden gem in Riga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

The area is buzzing with nice restaurants, bars in clubs and this is a great place where to start your night out. A lovely view makes the experience very exciting!

Book a table in advance as it gets full up. Bouncers warn at the door if all tables are taken and you dont want to be waiting at the bar as people get so chilled they dont want to leave.

I booked my table well in advance and had a lovely one just next to the water. All of us arrived at different times but everyone was well looked after by a very attentive waiter.

We had some food - lamb, ceasar salad, chicken and desserts as well as cocktails - different mohitos, cuba libres, beer and soft drinks. Everything was amazing and i will add photos of the food once i download photos from my camera too.

Pricing was good considering the amount of time spent there- we arrived at about 7pm and left at about 10:30 pm. It was 6 of us in total- 3 main courses, 2 salads and 3 desserts, about 10-12 cocktails, a couple of beers and soft drinks and it all came to just under 100 lats. Not too bad for what you get! Remember that service is not included so leave the waiters a nice tip :)

P.s. They have blankets available in case you get chilly!

“A lovely find in Riga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

A Latvian friend introduced us to Eksports on our recent, brief visit to Riga. The location is lovely - overlooking a small yacht marina enhanced by the tall ship that is currently berthed on the river Daugava. It has the atmosphere of a cafe but the food was excellent - well sourced, well cooked and beautifully presented. The service was good if a little impersonal. I can imagine it would also be particularly pleasant for a long lunch in the summer or early evening drinks on a warm evening. A lovely find which we would highly recommend - at least in the warmer months!
