“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Vincents has had the reputation of being the best restaurant in Latvia for many years, and it still deserves it.

The food, the service, the presentation are all impeccable, and the chef is wonderfully attentive.

It is not cheap, but Riga is not a cheap city and the prices are similar to inferior restaurants in the old town.

“Was so disappointed!!!”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

Was so disappointed - oversized portions, simple fare without any garnish. Cream for dessert seemed to be based on margarine. One was full - but that was all. Many tourists like ourselves - but we will not come back!

“Extremely bad service...”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

Extremely bad service. Especially the chef of that place is very, VERY, rude! Been there December 2011. Food: to expensive for what they serve. Especially when we choose Michelin star restaurants for eating out also we have places to compare. Try something else, than this place. I really do not want you to get so disappointed and experience this rude attitude from the personal of this place. Æsj…

“Fantastic -just go”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

OMG - this place has everything - great food, service and theatre. When in Riga do yourself a food favour and visit. Not the cheapest restaurant you'll find in Riga (c 50L per head incl wine), but its got to be the best. Its the little touches that make this place soo good from the olives, bread and cheese sticks while you scan the menu, the bouche and the sorbet that they make while you sit at the table in between courses. Ive been to lots a fab restaurants in lots of places - this is right up there with the best of them. I cant wait to go back
