“Excellent dining experience”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

After reading the revies here at TA we had high expectations when arriving at Vincents, and we weren't dissapointed. A visit at Vincents is so much more than just a meal - it's a full evening of dining. The service is great, and the waiters have a lot of knowledge about the courses and wines. Many of the courses are prepared at the table. It's an expensive option for Riga, but definitely worth it. It's an experience you don't have too often.

“Expensive but near perfection”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This was the second time we had visited this restaurant. On this occasion the owner/chef was very visible visiting every table in the full restaurant at least twice. The "amuse bouches" wereamazing and reflected in part the time he had spent with Heston Blumenthal with the use of dry ice at the table as well as blow torches for melting the tops of various dishes. It is certainly not the place for anyone on a firm budget but it is just so special, as are other world class restaurants, that the monetary considerations just have to be forgotten.
The delicacy and absolutely brilliant presentation certainly complement the culinary tastes.

“Faultless”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Every aspect of the dining experience was faultless. From the reception to the final surprise with the Pandora's box of chocolates to complete our meal.

You simply cannot visit Riga without eating at this world class restaurant.
