Description: Restaurant Muusu is a story of values developed through years of experience. We praise beauty and comfort; every detail counts. The Nordic interior – clean lines, raw brick walls, linen fabrics and wood in combination with metal is an exquisite background for that which is essential – the food and our emotions.The Muusu menu offers the values of contemporary European cuisine. Try seasonal highlights, such as asparagus gel and local delights – goat’s cheese foam or grilled venison meat in a juniper berry port wine sauce. The Muusu chef Ainārs Volodka has previously worked in one of the best restaurants in the world, the famous Noma in Copenhagen. In Riga he has gathered a team of creative professionals. The Muusu ascetic plates manufactured in the Rauna brick kiln are just like a canvas to paint on.Late brunch, a business dinner, an evening with friends or a very special occasion – The Muusu restaurant is like a chameleon, adapting to and supporting your different emotions. We would like to take the liberty to warn you that your time will fly on Muusu sofas.

We visited Muusu on a wet Sunday evening after reading a review in a tourist brochure. The restaurant is relatively new and was not particularly busy enabling us to get a nice table inside.

Our waiter was very professional, helpful,knowledgable and enthusiastic about both the menu and the wine list. The menu was a foodie delight using seasonal and mostly local ingredients but with interesting twists. (Tomato sorbet as part of an entree and a beetroot cheese cake as a desert option.) Both were as delightful as they were unexpected.

If you are in Riga and want a fine dining experience at a reasonable price you should try Muusu.

As a frequent visitor to Riga, I am always on the lookout for new places to eat. I had tried this relatively new restaurant earlier this year and thought I'd go again. My companion decided she didn't want to eat anything but my food was very good, though the vegetables were slightly over-cooked. Best of all was the attentive service: here was a waiter who genuinely seemed to want me to enjoy the food and wine...or maybe it was just good acting.

Riga is still a cheap capital for tourism, despite the last jannuary introduction of Euro, and the food quality is high. Therefore restaurant almost always offer a nice deal; Muusu, in the very centre of the art nouveau block, adds also very high level service attentions to its customers and a pretty nice atmosphear. For sure Ill be back next time in Riga.

Nice restaurant, We picked the lamb as main dish and asked it to be "rosée" as lamb should be served. We got the message that this was impossible because the lamb was already prepared in advance. The quality of the preparation didn't honor the noble animal. Service and price were ok.

A place worth returning!
First impressions: ambient cosy and stylish, welcoming and friendly staff, nice feeling. But then it become better and better! Our waiter was a spark! Conversant, funny and good looking :)
Food was excellent! We both had venison steak. Im not a big steak admirer, but this was a DEEEELISH!
Wine, atmosphere and food. I got dizzy :)

I wish MUUSU restaurant a bright and long life! ;)
