A great restaurant, in a perfect central location in Riga with a view on the park. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was very attentive and professional. Loved it so much, that decided to celebrate a wedding here! Highly recommend for those who want to have a great evening in a company of family or friends.

Very nice local more than above the average in Riga Very intersting foods and very well elaborated and prepared. Try Barens Red Crab Wonderfull . The wine list could be wider but good in any case.

Had the tasting menu here, the menu was dull and bland tasting. The staff do not seem to know what they are doing. I wanted to order a glass of wine, to which I was told I need to order from the 'wine expert' who would suggest one for me, despite me saying I already know what I want. 20... More

I visited Biblioteka for the 2nd time and my hopes were high. Unfortunately, the service this time brought the total experience somewhat down. Food is still good and nicely presented. Local ingredients and a forest theme. Mushrooms was used in several of the dishes – nice. Service was slow this night and glasses was empty for a too long period... More

We went for brunch and first thing that came to mind is that the atmosphere is a bit stiff like the staff don't really enjoy to work in the restaurant. . The standard of the food is really good and the variation in the self service buffet is quite impressive. . When it comes to prices it's really to much... More

We had Sunday brunch here and it was excellent. Unfortunately the service was not up to the same level. What I was most miscontent with was when I asked what cognacs they have. I never got the list, but was instead told how good one of them was and ended up having it served to me. And when we got... More

Very nice brunch. Excellent selection. They even had oysters! And good ones as well:-) Several different salads, cheeses, seafood and great desserts. Plus is that you can order hot food of a menu, that is included in the 35 euro charge. Must be specifically nice in the summer with the beautiful view of the park. Lots of families here as... More

I have noting bad to say about the food, it was really good. But way too expensive compared to what you can get in other, better, restaurants in Riga.

If you only will have one better dinner in Riga choose this restaurant. It is the very best one in the town. A very nice and cosy environment with toppclass food and professionell crew.
