Had a dinner one late Sunday night in February. The atmosphere was nice and cosy. I had lamb shank with some mashed potatoes. The lamb was really tender and the taste was good. Also the local beer was a nice surprise. Also my collegues was satisfied with their selections.

6 of us visited for dinner during a weekend away and we loved the cosy and welcoming atmosphere. The service was excellent as well as friendly. We loved the different types of bread with flavoured butters and the complimentary amuse-bouche. All the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the chocolate fondant!

We chose this restaurant based on the positive TripAdvisor reviews and its close proximity to our hotel. We visited for lunch. Service was friendly and felt genuine. The menu had lots of delicious sounding dishes and we struggled to make a decision. After much deliberation, I opted for a soup to start followed by beef for main. Both were delicious... More

This was my 2nd visit to Petergailis and both experiences were great. This has to be one of the best restaurants in Riga. The food is very refined with a lot of attention to detail. The service is even better than the food. Two women were working the day that I was there. Both were very friendly and very efficient.... More

One of the oldest restaurants in Riga, Petergailis is a place for all who seek some peace and quiet in the busy Old Town. The restaurant has been open since 1978 and still serves classic Petergailis dishes as well as contemporary kitchen with new vibes for gourmet lovers. There is also a summer terrace with a nice view of the church tower and Skarnu street.
