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.

Cosy restaurant with nice terrace. White decor that gives a home feeling. Although plenty of tables outside were and stayed empty ("reserved"), we had to sit inside. Starter with aubergine was very promising. Dumplings good, beef stroganoff was acceptable but really nothing special. Presentation on the plate was basic. Polite service but missing some friendlyness. Overrated.

Great restaurant which I always look forward to come back to. It always feels like I am visiting an old friend. Dishes taste like homemade with very generous portions. Very inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended if you like traditional Slavic food.

Authentic Russian restaurant that seems to be popular with the locals. Main courses were very good. Good size servings.

Great Latvian dining experience. Cozy restaurant also used by locals. The pierogis were excellent. The caviar was also very good and affordable. The great place to try a wide range of Latvian cuisine.

Lovely homely restaurant. It's like a private residence. Staff are lovely. Beware of the venison stew. I found lead shot in mine. Not what I was expecting. I hope my teeth weren't damaged.

First time in a Russian restaurant. Trusted the recommendations of the helpful waitress. Very satisfying meal, tastefully prepared dishes and not heavy. Home made drinks were top notch. Highly recommend.

Amazing food, beautifully presented in lovely surroundings. Great service too. Had the added bonus of traditional songs being sung by a choir who were eating there too. Would definitely recommend.

First time and 100% satisfaction. The place is easy to find. Very polite, proffessional service. Multilanguage. Clean and cozy interior. Food was very good, old school and tasty. Served on time. We tried herrings, dumplings, beouf Stroganow and pancakes with roe. Prices are adequate. Number 1 in Riga, to us. We will back for sure.

After a disappointing first night of food in Riga, Uncle Vanyas was a revelation. I ordered the dumplings and Turkey Kiev and every bite was incredible. My mum had the beef cheek which was equally as delicious. Everything from the decor to the music and the waiting staff was perfect. Highly recommended

We walked in to have a dinner on a Wednesday evening. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The place had a character and old Russian music was playing in the background. Complementary vodka shots were offered. The ordered food was brought out very quickly and was of a good quality. The dishes listed on the menu are tailored to reflect the taste of Russia. It is an experience worth having.
