“Friendly staff and good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This bar/restaurant is located in the old town but in one of the quieter parts. It has got to be the cleanest bar I have ever visited. As the name suggests, the theme is a Garage; this includes car and motorcycle seats and other decorations relating to the auto-mobile theme. Beer is very good (they probably clean the pipes more often than most) and food tasty and good quality. The only slight downside was the music volume did get a bit louder later so it got a bit harder to talk, however that didn't stop us from going again the next night!

“Something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

It so so lucky to find place like this, eventhough I'm not sure we will remeber where to find it next time. First, the atmosphere - you come in and see, that people feel good here. good sign to see locals sitting at the bar. Second, food was absolutely fantastic and thanks waitress for suggestions! And WC, which looks like giant fridge or phone box - awesome!

“Good Food, Quiet Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is located on a quiet street near the Swedish Gate. We had lunch and it was very good. We both had the Pork Tenderloin with Potato and it was delicious. The prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly.

“Looks like trap for tourists”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Visited this place with family and was disappointed.
They have good home page but reality is "bit" different. Attention of waitress was lost after we made our order. We try to order additional drink but it was not easy (husband went to find waitress as she was too busy to serv us).
Place is noisy.
Dishes were with "idea to be cool". Weren't. Meat was with pieces of cartilages and stiff.
Coffee was more or less but can say that this place doesn't fit to price.

“Evening Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Myself and my wife visited the restaurant two nights running last week. On both occasions, the food and service were very good. The house wine was good both red and white. Nice to sit on the outdoor terrace near the Swedish Gate.
