  • Staburags

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    The place is said to have huge portions of local heavenly food at really low prices. The ambiance is very nice; good for those who like a little but dark old-fashioned or country style surroundings and not just plastic and metal and full neon lights. The staff (men) are dressed in Latvian country-style clothes; wearing hats. Again; we did not...

  • Double Coffee

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This is a Latvian chain (or more accurately franchise) of cafés with several branches dotted around Riga - I went to the one opposite St Peter's Church. The logo reminded me so strongly of Costa Coffee that I suspected that they modelled themselves on that chain, but I found them to be very different in approach (table service rather than...

  • Put Vejin!

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    Put Vejin is a cosy restaurant and beer keller meaning Blow Little Wind. A cosy dark-ish place with intimate atmosphere and helpful staff. the venison (the reason why we went there) was really good, but the salads - quite creative - were interesting, too: avocado, prawns and cream - and salmon, salmon roe and grapefruit.

  • Alus Seta

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    The line between pubs and restaurants not exactly clear here, this one called pub and looks and served more like a restaurant, anyhow, I had some nice local food here but don’t ask me how it was called.

  • Cili Pica

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    I was familiar with the Čili Pica chain of restaurants from my previous visits to Latvia and Lithuania. I had eaten in at least one of their branches on my last visit to Riga in 2005. So, when we were looking for a light meal one snowy evening in December 2014, we were happy to try the Čili Pica restaurant on Raiņa bulvāris,...

  • Foodie Tips

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    There are many outdoors restaurants in the old town of Riga. I tried some of them and was very satisfied with the quality of the food. However it is more expensive to eat in the old town than the rest of Riga. I noticed all the foreign tourists sitting around me. The main languages by the guests were German and Scandinavian. Where are the Latvians?...

  • Ezetis Migla

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This was another of our group dinners during the pre-Euromeet 2014 get-together. As with Key To Riga this was superbly organised by our local friend Rita who arranged a buffet of local specialities and an excellent spread it was. Etizis Migla is an atmospheric cellar bar on the street leading to the Swedish Gate. This is more of a local's haunt...

  • Kiploku Krog

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    One of the most unusual restaurants in Riga, or for that matter Europe is this one in Riga. It bills itself as 'The Garlic restaurant' and it certainly lives up to it's name. Absolutely everything on the menu, and I mean everything, has garlic as a component somewhere. We selected the garlic platter as a starter which gave a good range of...

  • Key To Riga

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This is a restaurant where we ate as a group of about 30 during the pre-Euromeet 2014 get-together, which was superbly organised by our good friend Rita who lives here in Riga. Obviously as a group our experience of the restaurant wasn't a typical one since Rita had wisely arranged our meal to be a communal cold buffet served at our tables. Key To...

  • Emils Gustavs - Emihla Gustava

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    Emihla Gustava is a heaven for chocolate lovers. I drank a delicious hot chocolate here, which was served in a small cup together with a glass of water. It was like thick melted chocolate and I had a good taste in my mouth long after drinking it. Really yummy! It was 1.50 Ls (December 2008). At Emihla Gustava they make handmade chocolates and the...

  • Rockabilly House

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    Although best-known as a live music, nightlife, venue the buzzy cafe-bar Rockabilly House offers a suitably informal, and reasonably-priced, food menu. As befits the rockabilly theme this is their upbeat interpretation of a classic '50's US American diner menu with its burgers, ribs and other similar stuff. There's also a good selection of light,...

  • Skyline Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    For decent coffee with an outstanding view, you should head straight for the Skyline bar. The prices are also sky high, but it's worth ordering a coffee and cheesecake (or a cocktail later) to sit down and enjoy the Old Town from 26 floors up. It's in the Reval Hotel, and it feels like you might be doing something wrong when you wander in there...

  • Steiku Haoss

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This has to be one of the absolutely best steak houses in Riga, true to its name, this is the "Steak Place". I am not a red meat eater any more, so I went for chicken, but the meat lovers in my entourage swore by the food. The place itself is decorated more like an Italian restaurant in my opinion, but the food definitely was steak house fare....

    The group of us went for dinner at Pie Kristapa Kunga restaurant. As we enter my first impression was wow, yeah I am looking at the medieval décor. I thought it was a magnificent set up. We had a set meal that was organized by our tour director. I am not sure the name of the dishes that I had but it was delicious. I had three course meals. I had...

  • Folkklubs ala Pagrabs

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    While researching restaurants prior to our trip to Riga in December 2014, Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs soon made its way to the top of my shortlist. Not for the live music performances that take place in the evenings, but for its reputation for good value local food and its extensive choice of Latvian beers on tap. I read a number of glowing reviews on...

    newly opened in the summer of 2011, i enjoyed an evening meal here on a Sunday night. I had in fact read about the restaurant during my air Baltic flight. During my visit two of the four owners where eating there that evening - lots of attention paid to them and the other diners too. great soup and fillet steak.

  • Apsara Tea House

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    It's a tea house, it serves tea. I went for the gunpowder and was not disappointed. The decor theme is very strongly turkish / middle eastern. This is the reason I ticked the above category (and why is tea house not on the list ? It's only the oldest form of drinking establishment in the world). The street level rooms feature huge bed-like...

    Riga Restaurants

    This place was great, but also the scene of one of the funniest thing that has ever happened to me. After a great meal of Soljanke Rasma Gaume (thick solanke soup -- don't ask just order) and The Key to Riga (pork loin baked in bacon with mashed potatos, stewed sour cabbage, and mushroom sauce), I reached in pocket to get a pen to write down what I...

  • Vincents

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This restaurant is definitely overrated ("The best in the city") and food is definitely overpriced. I dined in Vincents several times and would give it 4 points out of 5 for cuisine and 3 points out of 5 for service, in average, without considering prices. Prices: seared tuna costs $32 -compare it with $19 for seared salmon in Belleville, French...

  • Palete

    3 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    I had wanted to make sure that one night at least we had a special meal in a nice restaurant and so we went to this place in the Old Town. It's in a side street so probably gets missed if you're not looking out for it. It is quite classic, table cloths, pastel pinks and subdued lighting. It is a little bit retro/dated in some respects but has an...

  • Pasaka

    Riga Restaurants

    I believe this is part of a chain, but I've no idea where the others are. Eastern European fast food such as pancakes with sour cream, pork schnitzels, and pelmeni are on offer. Inexpensive but excellent food if you are looking for a light lunch. It is very handy when looking at Art Nouveau architecture or the wooden buildings in the area. Near...

    Riga Restaurants

    Visited this bar for lunch one afternoon and really enjoyed the wide menu on offer - in English, too. Really liked the atmosphere in the bar. They played some great music, too. A good mixture of Radiohead, The Strokes et al. I'm guessing that it would have been a lively place in the evening, as this was just lunchtime. Had a great club sandwich,...

  • Fazer Cafe at Stockman

    Riga Restaurants

    Mrs Flying Scotsman's German aunt used to swear by department store restaurants for an inexpensive, filling meal. Although her experience was of German stores, we have used her advice in other countries as well. Stockmann's cannot compare with the Hondos Centre in Athens (with its uninterrupted view of the Acropolis), but it does serve very good...

    This is billed as Riga's only Korean restaurant but despite the lack of competition the food was wonderful, as good as any Korean meal I've had in the UK. And a fraction of the price. Very economical by Riga standards too. About the food? The jonokoíi (salmon on skewers with a sweet sauce) was a juicy and moreish starter, probably the highlight....

  • Pomodoro

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    Pomodoro is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant located on a quiet side street in the old town. The interior is warm and cosy, and the long menu very tempting with its pastas, pizzas etc. Pomodoro is, however, much more than your average pizzeria and is that for suitable for all kind of situations. Although Riga doesn’t get praises for...

  • Kosher Cafe L'Chaim

    Riga Restaurants

    I had never been to a cafe that I'd seen classified as 'Jewish' so as this was only a few steps away I'd been hoping to check this place out most of my stay. I popped in here eventually while waiting for the Jewish Museum to open and as that was only an hour or so after breakfast, I could only manage a coffee. Nonetheless I have my...

The staff is friendly, in the I don't speak english but I see what strudel you...

  • Pelmeni XL

    4 out of 5 stars

    Riga Restaurants

    This is another good place for a cheap filling meal. We both had pelmeni with sour cream. There were 6 kinds of pelmeni (like ravioli) filled with meat or cheese or vegetables. The decor is a kind of "Gaudi meets McDonalds". There is at least one other branch in Riga.

    We had just got back to our Hotel, after being on the bus from Tallinn. We were tired and most of all we were hungry. We had spotted a restaurant on our walk to the Hotel, that looked like a winner for the evening's meal. After freshening up we headed for the AMPLUA which seemed to offer Italian dishes. It was a very lovely room, decorated nicely....

Prices were reasonable and service was good. Would highly recommend going there. I particularly enjoyed the duck. We paired it with a french Chablis.... They were...

If you want a romantic evening I cannot...

    This restaurant in the New Town has both Latvian and Russian specialities and is part of a small chain. If you've bored of cafeteria style restaurants then you could try this as it has waitress service, though not necessarily service with a smile. The service was ok but the food came out after a very long wait, even though there was only one other...

  • Juffin's 12 - CLOSED

    Riga Restaurants

    As you walk through the glass entrance that provides the only natural light to the restaurant, you enter a warm world of wood, stone and glass. The potential unfriendliness of bare brick and rough plastered walls is successfully offset by exposed wooden beams, ventilation running through polished wooden conduits, and locally hand crafted stained...

Friday earlier and knew it was nearby so that’s where I went immediately. I ordered a big burger, with cheese and bacon, and a beer to drink. It all tasted...

    Riga Restaurants

    The heavens truly opened on my first evening in Riga. Torrential rain sent me to seek shelter somewhere I'd probably avoided otherwise, because Melnā Kaķa Mājas Restorāns is on the edge of Livu Laukums, a large-ish leafy square which is very much on the visitor path. I'd been looking for the 'cat house' but the rain was so...

    Most entries are prepared at table side on an open flame. Ethnic Armenian food presented in a fantastic relaxing atmosphere. A nice way to divide the restaurant premises into private "cabinets" (without doors anyhow). Very peaceful, nice dining. I loved the little hint of smoke (barbeque taste) in the dishes - as mentioned, the majority of the...

    This restaurant named Kokanda, is a Central Asian cuisine restaurant, and is located at number 12 Bruninieku. It was in the same street as our accommodation (Knights Court at 75B Bruninieku). Bruninieku means "Knight" in Latvian, by the way. We opted for the "Business Lunch" which was 3 Latvian Lats each, (which is a bargain), and on the day we...

They seemed like regulars too, and enjoyed their meal as much as we did. In the evenings the place is...
