Description: On the gastronomic map of Riga "Melnie Muki" (Black Monks) is one of the few restaurants, which continues functioning for many years offering classic and relaxing atmosphere an¬d perfect service to its customers. The name Black Monks was given to the restaurant thanks to the old monastery, whose rooms have been serving as a place for social life already for fifteen years. Even though the slightly renewed interior and new accents the main value - the ancient brick walls of Old Riga - remain unchanged. The restaurant is very much in step with the times and offers to the customers the best there is while preserving the image built over many years. The waiters of the restaurant take not long to wait for and offer the menu as soon as the customers have sit down at a table.

“lovely food”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I seek out this restaurant when in Riga. It consistently has excellent, well presented food. I am sorry a previous reviewer thought that anybody who thinks this food is good does not get out much. Just for the record I get out and eat out a lot!

Smart Restaurant, good value and excellent Michelin grade food at knock down prices. The outside view isn't brilliant but eating inside is a joy

“delicious and well presented”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

this quaint, cozy restaurant is found on one of the exits when you leave the mall GALERIA. leaving through where two restaurants are in this mall.

the cook sends a little appetizer so nicely presented. we went there two times because of the delicious food and how it was presented on the plate. one eats with the eyes too.

service was excellent too. when you visit RIGA....a must!

“Excellent food at a good price”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

I had dinner here with my parents tonight and was very impressed. I've walked passed the place a couple of times but am very glad we went in tonight.
The menu is deceptive as on first glance it looks like nothing at all special but then once you start reading through it you'll notice some interesting dishes. And on ordering you won't be disappointed. Everything was absolutely exquisite and half the price of what you'll pay in equally good restaurants around Riga. The staff are fantastic.
Definitely recommend this for an excellent quality meal
