For the second year in a row, Latvian restaurants have been included in the restaurant guide called “White Guide 2018”, which is popular in the Nordic countries and gradually gains popularity in the Baltic States.

This autumn, Baltic restaurants have become an integral part of the restaurant guide issued in the Nordic countries and are gathered on the website of the guide in “White Guide Baltic” section.

We are especially proud and share our joy with Riga restaurant “Vincents”, which was recognized as the best in the Baltic States last year, while this year experts have put in the second position.

Speaking in the symbolic guide opening event in Tallinn, Harri Hanson, representative of the publishers, stressed that this is the right moment to visit Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia to enjoy outstanding food. Baltic restaurants have achieved excellent level and won’t disappoint even the most sophisticated gourmands.
Harri Hanson added that, apart from cuisine, trip to the Baltic States will give a number of other striking impressions.
Unlike in the last year’s edition, when “White Guide Nordic” with the Baltic States included was available in printed format, guide of 2018 will be available only electronically – on the homepage and in the mobile phone application. This is allegedly reaction to the modern age, when majority of the society prefer web sources.
