Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place was really nice, the food was lovely. Me and my partner had soups that tasted great. Konja? I think was our server, she was very polite and helpful.

Had a lovely dinner on a chilly January evening. The crispy garlic rye bread was really good as a starter (and salad was okay too). Both main courses were very delicipus, especially the beef cheeks - as tender as they can ever get with amazing...3 different sauces! Wine selection is very limited but was okay for the price. If you are looking for an easygoing and affordable dinner place in Riga, this is your spot!More

Black Monks was always a decent restaurant, but now it has become absolutely outstanding! We heard that they have a new head chef and director, and their expertise is evident. The food has reached new heights of excellence. Each dish was a perfect blend of...flavors, beautifully presented and expertly crafted. The atmosphere was cozy yet elegant, creating a wonderful dining experience. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive, enhancing our overall enjoyment. In short, Black Monks is now a top-notch culinary destination. The food, service, and ambiance are all exceptional. Don't miss the opportunity to experience this culinary gem!More

Good food and awesome service! We had potato pan cakes with salmon and cold beet soup. Both local specialties. Both very good! What added flavor to our meal was a young waiter Marcuss. Nice, knowledgeable about the food and the Riga area. Helped us a...lot with planning our next day here. Thank you!More

Had dinner last evening at Melnie Muki. Food was excellent, service was great and pricing was very reasonable. I was with a business colleague and we dined outside, enjoying a quiet and comfortable environment, chatting and watching passers by. The inside decor is very nice...and looked like the people inside were enjoying the quiet atmosphere. We shared appetizers: potato pancakes with bacon and sour cream, and homemade rye bread with herring pate and dried tomatoes. Both were delightful. For my main I enjoyed a venison burger with horseradish sauce and my colleague was very pleased with the pork ribs as his main. For dessert we shared the blueberry tiramisu.More

Perfect Place! Nice Ambiente and a very friendly Personnel! The food is excellent and the vine as well. I had black Ravioli with Salmon inside and a nice creamy sauce with herbs - delicious! The Espresso and the Mojito we're also very nice.

After strolling through Riga and circling the inner city a few times to find a reasonable priced restaurant we ended up at Melnie Muki. We had seen the restaurant before but not many people were in ( sometimes a bad omen) but after seeing all...the other dining options (very touristic / standard /expensive) we gave it a try and we were not disappointed. One of the guests told us that the duck breast was good and it was not only good but excellent. My friend had black ravioli with salmon which was excellent too. The wine cart is a little limited but the wines were more than OK. The staff was very friendly and really doing their best (and succeeded)More

This great, quiet restaurant is near one of the main plazas. Quaint outdoor seating is available on hot days. Service was excellent and food was fantastic. I would definitely come back to this restaurant again.

Really enjoyed my visit, whilst there was a small mix up with the order it was quickly rectified and the waitress was incredibly kind and very happy to make recommendations on things to see in local area. The food was very good quality, and whilst...a smaller portion was certainly worth the price.More
