About
Valter`s Restaurant boasts a contemporary - fine dining Latvian cuisine based mostly on Latvia's own seasonal products such as milk, vegetables, meat, fish, fruit and game coming from local farmers. The restaurant`s interior with Latvian landscapes recalls the simple but elegant country manor where every visitor can feel not as a customer but a long-awaited guest. The restaurant's concise menu is as changeable as nature itself. One of the founders of our Latvian kitchen - chef Valters Zirdzins creates new original recipes as soon as farmers offer new products and a new hunting and fishing season starts.

We visited this restaurant during the quiet pre-Christmas period, and the restaurant's layout and atmosphere perfectly complemented this pre-Christmas mood. The service was excellent - we felt very welcome. We were pampered with both home-baked bread and the chef's compliment. The menu is very, very...More

The food was incredible even if the service lacked. From their famous bread to appetizers and main course (delicious lamb!!), this meal did not disappoint. What prevents this from being 5 stars is that they canceled my reservation at the last minute despite having made...More

The salon is very beautiful and the food was not bad, but portions were rather small and food was not exquisite. Coming from Central Europe prices look reasonable, but for Latvia they really are not. And by the above I would rate 3 stars, however...More
