Great fine dining restaurant in Riga. We tried 5-course tasting menu which was very interesting and yummy. Such an exciting presentation of Baltic cuisine. The service was excellent as well as the wine. If you are into fine dining don't miss this place while in Riga!

Vincents is said to be the best restaurant in Latvia, and after trying it I have no doubts whatsoever about that statement. This simply is an incredible restaurant and if you like fine dining a visit here is well worth a trip to Riga in itself.

We tried the 5-course menu which was offered as either focused on meat or seafood. We chose seafood and among other things it contained a superb salmon tartar and a tuna steak to die for. Besides the courses there was also many complements which also were of highest quality. Together with excellent wine this made the food experience one of the best I ever had.

In summary this is simply top quality all over. From when you reserve a table, when you arrive and are greeted, the service through the dinner, the food quality, the surprises (can't write about them without spoiling), the wine recommendations from the sommelier etc etc. A great evening and we will for sure return for more.

This restarant exceeded my expectations. Everything was perfect. The service was excellent and the food and wine was amazing. This is suppose to be one of the best restaurants in the Baltic countries and it probably is! I can really recommend this!

Had heard from locals that this restaurant is supposed to be really good and fairly expensive so we had high expectations. Once we got there it was obvious the staff was very professional and that we'd get a fancy dining experience. It did not disapoint! The seared scallop starter was done with little bit of a twist and was one the best starters I've ever had. Steak was really good along with it's side dishes and the chef's special for dessert was superb and served in a unique way. The entire dining experience was very memorable and like expected very expensive as well. Worth the money though!
