Had read the reviews prior to our visit and thought we would give it a go. It is a bit out of the main part of the city but tram number 11 stops right outside. We had booked online and I had received a confirmation but when we arrived we were not in the book! However, this wasn’t a problem... More

Would like to keep your attention suggesting to visit this restaurant. It's wonderful! Located a bit on side of the Rīga center, still more easier options to park the car nearby. What's unusual there, idea offered by International SV is to try several meals as portions are quite small and not so expensive. At the very end you try different... More

Maybe we came too late and chef was tired :) service was really bad. Dishes were mixed, served incorrect order, we tried to joke with waitress, but he was... More

As always good menu, both tasty and beautiful dishes, welcoming stuff. Thing I really like, is option of "small" portions. It's easy to have selection of dishes without overeating.

We spent here my wife's birthday with a group of 8 persons. We had a great time, the service is very good, the restaurant is nice and cozy. The food was delicious, the wine also very good. They had some good tequilas and very good vodka that I've never heard of before.
