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

We went there for Sunday brunch! Price is quite high, however food choice perfect - starting from salads, cheese, sea food! Also perfect desserts😄 Glass of champagne for free!

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.

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
