Restaurant Elements part of the Tallink hotel in Riga
Fusion between European and Baltic kitchen with strong personal influence of the head chef (Svetlana?!)
What did I eat?
Pan fried scallops and Suckling pig chop (see description down below) both great dishes!
A bottle of Riesling with the name Geil (what means horny in my language), it could not be bad…… 😉
Good / Bad points:
+ what a warm restaurant, perfect interior, good lighting, eye for detail
+ For Baltic area a very challenging and European / Scandinavian menu, a lot that I like!
+ well trained staff, they know what they do here!
– ???? no real bad points here
Food: 8.9 – Nice presentation and good filled plates. Surprising combinations, but also too much flavors. I prefer odd combinations but having 7 different tastes on 1 dish sometimes missed the harmony. Very good, but less would be more here at some times.
Coziness: 9.1 – The perfect chairs for a night out, warm lighting and attention for detail. However you do still see that you are in a hotel.
Staff: 9 – close to perfection, having wine knowledge, menu and ingredient knowledge, just a few years and they are worth a full 10
price – 9.1 Once again honest prices, for this meal and this service, they earned a great tip.
Overall: 9 out of 10
