The chef’s Māris Jansons 9 course tasting menu is splendid. Real gastronomical adventure with true respect to local food. Everything is served with style and passion. Moreover, there are excellent specially non-alcoholic cocktail selection that is chosen especially for you gastronomical journey. The stuff are just great, they know how to make you feel welcome and cozy. However, for me... More

I went to Biblioteka for lunch. Food is tasty, service is ok, and definitely expensive. I liked it being located in the park with a nice terrace and green view.

The classy, spacious and calm interiour with its comfortable armchairs overlooking a park is what drew me to biblioteka no1 for my solo dinner out. The service was equally calm and classy, making me feel very comfortable even on my own. And my dinner was just wonderful! Extremely fresh sea crab with avocado, cucumber, quail egg and an airy wasabi... More

I could not find the place and the hostess stayed on phone guiding me for 5 min while I found it. Very sincere effort. Sat in a great spot and had best ever full flavor amuse bouche of Creme fresh infused with Procuito, some sort of bacony tasting crisp veggie bits in a semi sweet sauce... What a combo... Wow....

Apparently Biblioteka is rated second best table in Riga after Vincent's...having not tried the latter yet (but will!) i can only rate it best of all tables tried so far (half a dozen). The menu is what i expect from a top location in a small capital city: not tool long, a mix of local tastes revisited and blended with... More

We got to the restaurant a bit later than expected, but we were greeted very friendly! The food was delicious. The classic preparation of the tartare was great, and 'informative'. Service very friendly. Modern yet warm interior. Prices correct. Would definitely come back.

The setting was beautiful, right in the park. The exterior was very attractive and inviting. The inside is beautiful too. However, the seats were very low and even with a cushion I found the table far to high and distant.The food was a little bit too sophisticated for my rather ordinary tastes. Not only that, it was extremely expensive. I... More

Stylish and expensive restaurant. Situated a bit anonymously and outside the inner centre of Riga. We had a 9 course meal wich tasted great, but was introduced to us by a fumbling and rude waiter. NOT GOOD!!! A big plus that the chef himself came and prepared one of the courses in front of us. He was pro! If you... More
