We stopped by Biblioteka for lunch having read the excellent reviews. We were greeted at the door, and taken to our table which overlooked the park. We arrived around 2 so there were only a few diners left, but the atmosphere was calm and the layout of the restaurant was tasteful, with book cases around the room.

We choose three starters for lunch including ox tongue, lampry and deer tartar. All three starters were good sized portions, were presented beautifully and tasted fresh, clean and basically, excellent. The lampry in particularly was the stand out dish, with a mixture of flavours including pea and egg that worked well with each other.

The champagne and wine choices were good, and the wine list was extensive. Service was attentive and friendly, making the overall experience wonderful.

Would return.

Had the pleasure of having a working lunch here. An amazing place, great location, stunning views o the park!

The service and food is just mouth watering! This place just knows what it is about and that is EXCELLENCE! Next time I will ensure we have an evening meal here, it was almost a shame it was a working lunch.

Went for a lunch and wasn't disappointed. The food menu is interesting as well as a presentation of the food. Good wine list and the service was excellent! We enjoy our lunch a lot, such a nice decor and a relaxing atmosphere. Isn't expensive and surprisingly good! Baltic food can be different, interesting and tasty, Thanks to Biblioteka No1.

This is actually a nice place. The ambition is very high but the only problem is that everything was not cocked properly. I ate both sea scallops and Foi Gras that was a Little bit over cocked. I can still recommend this Place even though it is a little bit over prised. But if you want fine dining there are not that many better places to choose in Riga. The service was very good!
