Restaurant is located in the national art museum in Riga. Compact, thoughtful menu with international cuisine. Dishes are delicious and service is pleasant. Prices are a bit high but overall nice place.

This really is a fine museum: a classical building, which means high spaces, wide halls. Art is selected and hung very well: chronological tour thru 200+ years of pictorial art. Very energizing, somehow packed with high aspirations and great energy. I would place this museum...More

Compact overviwe of latvian art. Reacently renovated attic is opened for temporary exhibitions. Most interesting are socialist art of the beginning of the 20th century ( Gustavs Klucis) and the last quarter of 20th century.

I pay 6€ for the whole exhibitions. However, it all latvian art and the collections are not much to see (when compared to the Hermitage which only 7€ but take more than whole day to see it all) However, the temporary exhibition quite interesting.
