“Tasty food and good service! ”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

A bit outside the centre of Riga and therefore not surounded by a nice view or the atmosphere of Riga itself. There are trams that will go regularly.
The service is good: friendly waiters who look like they actually have time for you! The food is tasty. You can order a few minor dishes, for example 2-3 each. That's a nice way of exploring the Letvian kitchen! They have also a lot of more international meals to choose from.

“fun concept and great food”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

SV stands for "shared vision" - we had to ask. We had read in advance so we knew that this place does small plates (though our waiter did also mention this) and it was great fun to order a larger number/greater variety of dishes than one is normally able to do. We were there on a beautiful evening and sat outside (the inside looks fine); a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Excellent food and service. We walked from our hotel, which was located in the center of the old city - it was a comfortable 20-min walk, largely through parks.

“Don't pass up the opportunity .....”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

I can only echo the many previous comments.
Yes, not the best part of town - no problems a cab will be called for you if needed - but with excellent, attentive and friendly service, we were treated to a truly great culinary experience.
Booked in advanced we 2 were expected and fortunately given a table inside that could seat 6. I wouldn't have minded one outside though.
We of course knew what to expect regarding portion sizes etc.but this was carefully explained.
So with water and a couple of glasses of wine, we had a complimentary starter of home made potato croquet with cream cheese, & ordered fois gras and pheasant terrine & Creme brûlée with 3 types of mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.
Sharing 4 mains; beef Wellington, lamb steak, bulls cheeks and ostrich fillet.
The quantity for each dish was just enough, and intentionally so, enabling us to sample and savour each exquisite dish. We left nothing!
Again sharing the fantastic banana flambé with chilli, vanilla ice cream and fruits, pineapple ravioli and a special passion fruit Creme brûlée.
All this for 89 euros, enough said.
Miss this & you'll miss out.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Great food! We took 6 appetizers and one main course- I have to say all of the dishes were just delicious! Beef stroganoff and maashrooms were the best! Portions are decent size( for the price I expected for them to be smaller;)). Service was fantastic! Overall great experience!

“Wonderful experiences”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Excellent food. I already came a lot of times to International SV, with my friends : the quality is constant, always excellent. Very good quality of ingredients, mixed altogether with great ingenuity. The service by the exquisite Alexandra is simply impeccable.
