Review of Riits

Riits
Ranked #8 of 1,158 Restaurants in Riga
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$29
Description: However we are not only proud of living in Latvia as well as the products that are produced by local farmers, also about sharing it with people. That is the reasons why we opened Riits - the place where we can cook delicious dishes of organic products that are brought daily by farmers from all over the country. The restaurant Riits is located in the central part of the city, and has become a favorite place for breakfast and lunch among locals. We are inviting our guests every day from 9:00, and offer breakfast with omelettes made from bio-eggs and organic cereal that are cooked in a special coal stove. Lunch and dinner will be served a la carte until late evening. The success of Riits is a combination of organic products from local farmers, open kitchen and the bright, warm space. The interior design of the restaurant has been developed by the famous designer Anda Ozolina. The interior solution, as well as the restaurant menu embody the idea of a classical trip to the village. Riits has a comfortable atmosphere with muffled music, warm homemade dishes of the produce from local farmers and friendly staff, who welcome guests for a gastronomic trip across Latvia. Vegan, vegetarian, fish and meat dishes are cooked in the open restaurant’s kitchen from seasonal and mainly local products brought from the peasant farms. Pork from Smiltene household, fresh eggs from Iecava, dairy products from Saldus farmers. There are few signature dishes from Riits like quail soup, pork and morning omelettes. The gastronomic trip across Latvia and its fields is not over in the kitchen - in the bar Riits guests are always invited to enjoy hot drinks made from rhubarb, quince and gooseberries, as well as cocktails with beet and honey-thyme liquors. You are welcome every day from 9:00 to 23:00 at Dzirnavu Street 72. Bicycle parking will be placed by the restaurant soon.

We arrived really late just about an hour before it was meant to close. Luckily kitchen was still open so we had a soup, salad and the lamp. Everything was super tasty and for a fair price, the staff was really welcoming, we liked the music abd the place in general looks cozy. Would recommend this place in a heart beat to whoever asks me!

We were lucky to get a table without a reservation and the restaurant was everything we expected. The service was friendly and food was fantastic! The athmosphere was warm and inviting with a modern twist - just like the food. We would have missed this experience if it hadn't been for the cancellation, definitely a table reservation is a must!

Me and my husband went to this lovely restaurant for dinner when we stayed in Riga and we were both really impressed. The restaurant had a great ambience and the service was excellent. The food was superb and very reasonably priced. We can strongly recommend Riits!

Small place with great interest in local produce and with a menu based on simplicity and focus on the raw material. A big and spacious plus to the moonshine.

AVOID TO VISIT !!! Terrible place with unpolited staff. The waitress served disgustingly. There are a lot of better places to eat and rest in Riga. Don’t waste your time in that hole of unpolited and uneducated staff....
