As much as we love cooking at home, sometimes it is better to choose a nice restaurant where you can enjoy steak, which is prepared by qualified chefs who know the best techniques for seasoning, grilling and achieving the desired level of doneness.

A visit to a steakhouse can offer a unique and enjoyable dining experience for several reasons. Primarily, of course premium quality meat that can rarely be found in regular grocery stores. The steak is cooked at the right temperature and for a certain period, which is difficult to do yourself at home. And after all, eating outside is still a pleasant socializing process.

In order not to get confused in the large selection of steakhouses, the Tablein restaurant guide recommends 9 restaurants in Riga and 1 just outside the capital, where quality and atmosphere goes hand in hand. Here, steak preparation is at a truly high level.
