It is a charming place with the best cuisine in town. Every politician figure and celebrity clearly is heading here once in Town. The food is exquisite.

Book now if you want a special dinner in Riga! The food is expensive but worth it for a special evening. We choose a la carte as the tasting menu wouldn't work for us unfortunately (one doesn't eat meat, one doesn't eat fish) but we were not disappointed. Staff is knowledgeable and service was impeccable, from the minute we walked... More

This has to be one of our top restaurant experiences ever. You need to book (you can do it online easily, and they text/call you nearer the time to confirm). Service is superb, from the moment your coats are taken away the whole visit is an experience. Of course it doesn't come cheap, but at the end we felt it... More

The service was very good - I'd say 5 star and it's their strongest point. The food was good, but that's it. Just good and not great as the place has set itself a very high bar and the expectations were higher. Although the wine suggested with various dishes was very good indeed. Sea ​​urchin was nice, but the first... More

This is just the best fine dining experience. Not just in Riga, but conquering many others in countries around Latvia. It is not just amazing, creative, delectable food - it is knowledge, innovation, combination. It is staff, ingredients and quality. Have been a customer at Vincent's over many years and look forward to each gastronomic journey here. Eat well!

However... I find almost every restaurant I eat in here lacking taste. Service would have been excellent if it wasn't for the waitress speaking too fast without managing her English properly. Registered half of what she said. Food came out really quick and they also had in between servings on the house.Lamb was good but I've definitely have had better.... More

Professional service and good food, many interesting experiments like making a hole in ice ball to see and get a pre starter. The food is good, for an international restaurant but not top class. A bit expensive so if value for Money is good, I am not so sure. I really like when you visit the restroom and your napkin... More

Its no doubt the best restaurant, but we keep it only for very special occasions. It has very unique atmosphere, but its not very cosy and cute- its quite serious, elegant and maybe even cold. Anyways, it is most special restaurant in Riga (and most expensive as well)!
