We take great pride of our northern origins and invite every guest to celebrate the flavors of this region with us by enjoying the freshest, highest quality local produce – cold water seafood and bounty of the forest, fruit, vegetables and other seasonal ingredients carefully selected from independent local farmers, fishermen and hunters.

In Barents, sustainability transcends a mere word; it pays homage to tradition. We draw inspiration from past generations, finding harmony with nature in every dish, whether during times of plenty or scarcity.

Welcome to Barents restaurant!




Settle into the sleek, airy dining room and let the Barents team spoil you!
The tasting menu is a rich, flavourful journey filled with stories, ideas, and inspirations drawn from Northern nature and culture.
The à la carte menu boasts inventive dishes catering to omnivores and vegetarians.
Both menus are seasonally attuned with the freshest cold-water seafood and local vegetables.

Cocktail & Seafood Bar

Subtle elegance and a steady glance out to sea give Barents Cocktail & Seafood Bar its old-world European charm.

From well-crafted classics to signature cocktails with a uniquely Nordic twist – we invite you to enjoy a pre-theatre or post-dinner cocktail, or just come to celebrate in style. All our fusions, syrups and bitters are made in close collaboration with Barents chefs.

Chef's table

Sizzling food, fast-cutting knives, and clouds of steam rising from pots and pans, while the team of chefs work in a hasty harmony – all elements come together in a symphony of fine cuisine. There are just six front-row seats to this chef-orchestrated show, set in front of the 2000-year-old black oak counter, the only thing separating you from the open kitchen and its maestro, Head Chef Dzintars Kristovskis. Dzintars' jocular personality is an intrinsic part of the experience. 

Barents restaurant is a place to celebrate special life events. Therefore we kindly ask our guests to follow smart or smart casual dress code.
Children who are familiar with restaurant etiquette are welcome to Barents. Please note that we do not serve separate children menu.
