This restaurant served good food but at a quite high price - especially for Riga. My overall feeling about this place was that they tried a little bit too hard - I got the feeling that they wanted to compete with all of the top restaurants but it was somehow a little bit off as if they did not have...

We ordered the degustation menu and the food was good and nicely composed. A bit strange the secrecy of what the menu would consist of. Still all the dishes had nice flavours. The staff was quick and attentive but they lacked the final touch of a Michelin starred restaurant service. The price was ridiculous and I felt that the menu,... More

I was told that Vincents was very expensive and it is compared to the princes elsewhere in Riga. But I found the price to be equal to fine dining in New York, Chicago or San Francisco and well worth the price. Also, it is all a-la-carte, so you can go and have some fun and eat well at your price.... More

We had high expectations, having read the gushing reviews here. While it was certainly not the worst restaurant or even the worst value restaurant we have been to, our overall experience was a terrible let down. We were sat in the first dining room. The décor and ambiance was a bit too flash for my liking and the staff, although... More

This must be the best restaurant in the Baltik.. every dish is a showcase of how food should be presented. . And the food is simply an experience. . The location by itself is not with same attention for style and details, but let's forgive. . The service and food fully compensate.

A wonderful culinary experience. My fiancé and I visited Vincent's during our holiday to Riga. We ordered the tasting menu which was not revealed until each course came out. The surprise element was wonderful and there were about 4 extra complimentary courses to the 5 course tasting menu. The courses were very fish and seafood heavy so that might be... More

The food tasted amazing and it was beautifully presented. The bartender made lovely cocktails at our table and the in between courses were innovative and fun. The only thing that puzzled me was that the waiter consequently address my partner throughout the meal and not the both of us. Not used to this in Scandinavia. All in all a great... More

Vincents is my all time favourite restaurant in Riga. We have Vincents and approximately top 5-7 other great restaurants. But Vincents has been one of its own so far.
