Eat in Riga

Communist food queues are ancient history, and today Riga is a culinary delight. To help your tummy make the most of your visit, I've put together a list of places you will get meals to remember for all the right reasons. Mostly ones giving a real taste of Latvia (you can get sushi or pizza at home, right?), showcasing its superb produce, creative chefs and rich traditions, not to mention unique drinks - beers,  Riga Black Balsam, ciders, fruit wines, even moonshine...


As we say in Latvian, lai labi garšo! Bon appetit!



so what's it cost then?

Every girl has her price.
Every girl has her price.

There's a three-course feed here for every budget:  - under 10 euros;   10-20 euros; and  - over 20 euros. And some of the fancy spots offer fabulous weekday LUNCH! specials, which bring the price down around €, so a trip to a top Riga restaurant is an affordable pleasure.
