Family and spending time together are our team’s biggest values. We express them in every detail, including round tables for friendly conversations, an inviting mood, a menu for the entire family, and a playground for our youngest visitors. Our team includes a few families as well, such as our head chef Antons Konstantinovs and his wife, pastry chef Jeļena Konstantinova.
Space and interior design
The interior of the restaurant is in an Art Deco style, and was designed by artist Agija Jansone. The terrace offers a magical view of Lake Baltezers, for a one-of-a-kind enchanting atmosphere. Beautiful sunsets create unusual interplays of colour in every season. In summer, you can enjoy your meal on our spacious terrace, which is one of the points of pride in our restaurant.
A meal at our restaurant is a true journey through the universe of flavour, paired with outstanding service and an atmosphere of elegance. In two words, this adventure could be referred to as flavour eclecticism. Our head chef Antons Konstantinovs put the restaurant’s menu together combining traditional flavours with new and creative ways to cook food. He is particularly adept at feeling the fine details of different flavours and their combinations, and he wants to share this experience with every guest of our restaurant, through its menu. Our affable team and wine recommendations by our sommelier will help you on your tour into the universe of flavour.
Our sommelier will select the best wine for your meal
Every wine has its own story. Each wine has been cultivated by the winemaker from the planting of the vines to the pouring of the wine into the glass. Every detail matters, from harvesting and processing grapes, to storage, the selection of bottles, filling, and label design. In order for you to enjoy wine in the way intended by the sommelier, we store it at just the right temperature, serve it in just the right glasses, to accompany just the right meal.
The Baltic Wine List Awards
The wine list prepared by our sommelier saw success in the 2020 Riga Wine & Champagne festival, and was found to be among the 17 best wine lists in Latvia. Wine lists from a total of 90 restaurants and bars had been submitted for the competition.
Our wine list includes some of the classics one can enjoy today. Wine-making regions in France and Italy make up the majority of the selection, with Argentinian and Chilean wines for some diversity in our wine list.
Baltvilla Restaurant has a few rooms and a spacious terrace for you to spend time with your family and friends, for a daily meal or special celebration. Find out more about event options at Baltvilla Hotel and Restaurant!
