My fifth visit to Riga and second eating here. It compares with the best dining I have experienced.
The atmosphere and service is unpretentiously superb. Surprising and novel approaches to the amuse bouche and palate cleansers that were entertaining and tasty. The Venison preparation and flavors were unique. Definitely a memorable experience I will long remember...

I had tried to get a table the last time I was in Riga but sadly it had been full. This time I was not disappointed and it was worth the wait. Everything I had heard was true. From the theatrical amuse bouches frozen at the table complete with dry ice swirling over the napkins, to the drama of unfurling scrolls of parchment explaining the quality of the bread and butter. Some people may think this is over the top - and it would be if the quality of the food did not match the theatre but it does - in every course. And it is not expensive - not compared to London prices - which would have been 3 times the cost. On the way out I was given a surprise box I was not allowed to open till tomorrow morning's breakfast. I can hardly wait. Awesome.

Great fine dining restaurant in Riga. We tried 5-course tasting menu which was very interesting and yummy. Such an exciting presentation of Baltic cuisine. The service was excellent as well as the wine. If you are into fine dining don't miss this place while in Riga!

Vincents is said to be the best restaurant in Latvia, and after trying it I have no doubts whatsoever about that statement. This simply is an incredible restaurant and if you like fine dining a visit here is well worth a trip to Riga in itself.

We tried the 5-course menu which was offered as either focused on meat or seafood. We chose seafood and among other things it contained a superb salmon tartar and a tuna steak to die for. Besides the courses there was also many complements which also were of highest quality. Together with excellent wine this made the food experience one of the best I ever had.

In summary this is simply top quality all over. From when you reserve a table, when you arrive and are greeted, the service through the dinner, the food quality, the surprises (can't write about them without spoiling), the wine recommendations from the sommelier etc etc. A great evening and we will for sure return for more.
