The internet portal The European 50 Best Restaurants has ranked restaurant BERGS in 21st place for the year 2011. This impressive climb of 19 places from the previous year is testament to the fact that BERGS, with its refined cuisine, amiable service and elegantly restrained interior, has achieved a stable and growing reputation of trustworthiness and recognition among its clients. BERGS was the only restaurant from Latvia on the internationally recognized list of the 100 highest quality restaurants from 24 countries. The top spot on the list went to the Michelin 2-starred restaurant Noma in Denmark, where BERGS' head chef Kaspars Jansons has also had the opportunity to work. Second place was given to the world-famous Mugaritz in the North of Spain, while third place went to the UK's The Fat Duck.
On its homepage, www.theeuropean50best.com collects reviews on where to eat from thousands of clients throughout the year. After visiting a restaurant, the site's creators themselves decide whether or not to include it in the top of their list. Inclusion to the TOP 100 is judged by the quality of the ingredients in the food, the level of ability in preparing and putting together a flavorful meal, creativity, adherence to culinary standards, presentation and service.
