This was the best meal we had in our two week trip to the Baltic states. All the food we had was delicious, beautifully presented. The service and ambiance were excellent. I had the lamb shank... it was amazing. Book a table!

One of the oldest restaurants in Riga, Petergailis is a place for all who seek some peace and quiet in the busy Old Town. The restaurant has been open since 1978 and still serves classic Petergailis dishes as well as contemporary kitchen with new vibes for gourmet lovers. There is also a summer terrace with a nice view of the church tower and Skarnu street.
