My Top Three Best Restaurants in Riga to have a romantic date
My Top Three Best Restaurants in Riga to have a romantic date.
Update from April, 2022
Some time has passed since I wrote this blog post.
Everything flows, and everything changes.
And I've changed my opinion. And now my absolute favorite and Top 1 is Barents - the best seafood restaurant I have ever dined at.
It has an amazing atmosphere and high-quality food served there with care.
The staff truly cares about you to get an excellent experience and knows everything about their cuisine and dishes. They fade out when you do not need them and appear precisely in the moments when you need them. The sommelier is charming and attentive.
You can book a seat at the chef's table and watch how they prepare the dishes.
In my humble opinion, it definitely deserves at least one Michelin Star.
Also some men prefer to start the escort meeting with a joint dinner. It is an excellent way to know each other better before the romantic moments in the hotel room. It also helps to break the ice when a man lacks experience with escort girls. I willingly agree to start the date in a good restaurant but expect me to eat a little, as I don’t eat much before bed.
So finally, here are my Top Three favorite restaurants in Riga to start the romantic date:
It was surprisingly easy to pick the first spot in my Top Three. There are a lot of excellent Italian restaurants in Riga, but one of them is undoubted my favorite. The restaurant is named after a small Italian village and is located in The Quiet Center of Riga, in Art-Noveau type of building. The interior is impressive: high ceilings, big windows, high-quality wooden trim, and old-fashioned mirrors. It offers classic Italian cuisine, but some of the dishes are adjusted to local gastronomical traditions. No doubt, the best seafood in Riga, including octopuses, calamari, shrimps, lobsters, and also one of the best Italian wine selection I have ever met. I am bribed by the fact that they have a special gluten-free menu. And last but not least, the service is excellent. For me, it is the best place for a romantic evening. I am addicted to expensive cars, so I cannot stop myself from mentioning that Ferrari named one of their new V8 sports cars after Portofino in 2017.
#2. The Catch
The Catch Restaurant was my perfect catch. It is located in The Quiet Center of Riga and offers delicious Japanese seafood cuisine, including sushi and the finest quality fish. I've never been a sushi eater, but many people said The Catch serves probably the best sushi in Riga. So sushi lovers will especially appreciate visiting this place. Last time I chose Robata grilled octopus with kimchi glaze and smashed cucumbers, the dish was outstanding. My friend ate bluefin tuna, which was delicious and flavored; as the waiter said, this tuna was delivered by air-mail and never frozen before serving. Lately, I have started to prefer the gluten-free food that is also available here, as well as the tasty vegetarian and vegan options. Also The Catch offers cocktails of decent quality. Summarizing The Catch Restaurant is a cozy place to begin the romantic evening; however, please consider that it is pretty pricey and usually crowded because it is tiny, so it is better to make a reservation! Even if you are a demanding seafood lover with high expectations, you will not be disappointed when you come here. Take advantage of this great place to enjoy a quality dinner!
The third place was the hardest to pick. In my mind, I have the several restaurants that are very good and overall fairly equal, but finally I had picked Naples because of its excellent seafood. And actually, this place could be the second or maybe even the first in the Top, but service is just okay, and definitely could be better and more helpful. Everything else is perfect, and I would advise you to try grilled tuna salad, salmon tartar, or even grilled ribs. The restaurant is cozy inside and also offers a nice view from a sheltered terrace area right on the water. If you decide to eat inside, ask for a table near the window - the view from the panoramic windows is stunning. Really the main feature here is a pool area where you can relax during the hot summer days.
Hopefully after reading that, you feel more prepared for planning a dinner date with a girl in Riga, don’t you?
