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.

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.
