People say that Vincents is the best Restaurant in Riga, and I agree. This time I had salmon (as compliment of the house); Mottra sturgeon caviar, paired with toasts and butter, and perfectly served; fried zucchini flowers with crab meat filling; cod from Faroe Islands; dessert. All dishes, as usual, were very good and artfully presented; excellent the wines (Champagne Roederer, Chablis). The service is attentive and efficient; the prices are right. Reservations are advised.

It's not often that we go to a restaurant and come away truly impressed but on the evening we went to Vincents it was nothing short of magical. Superb food with a touch of theatre made the whole experience something really special. The chef Martins Ritins came to talk to us after the meal and all the staff were excellent. Truly innovative and a great evening.

My husband in I love to spend money on Nice restaurants when travel. Vincent it's so cozy place with marvelous chef. The chef Martins Ritins is playful greeting us welcome and keep it up along the 7 course tasting meal. Waiters Are like quiet Ninjas serving you. They look very locally and are very nice and helpful. The food is also playful and reminds me of Noma kitchen sometimes. Exiting small surprises with a local touch. The various plates are carefully selected and the food is nicely presented. Cheese trolley is dangerously good. Dessert is like a big portion Latvian Forrest dream. Book a table and Go to food heaven here. Xxx to Martins. He loves What he do and we love him

We visited this gem of a restaurant shortly before christmas, it was a perfect way to end a weekend in Riga.
We were quickly showed to our table in a smaller section of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and well trained. It is the most professional staff we have yet to encounter. Despite the heavy accent, they were very informative and helped us get the most out of this meal. The chef came out and gave us an amuse-bouche which set the tone for the rest of the evening. We had a 3 course meal with amuse-bouches in between. And some of the wines they served was simply wonderful, we have yet to find a wine that can compare to the saint clair wine we got at Vincents.
All in all we had 3 courses, chocolates after dessert and close to 10 glasses of wine and some beer, for around 150£

This was the perfect way to end a wonderful trip to Riga, I cannot wait to come back
