Always a right place to go if you do not have anything in particular on your mind: food is great, selection of wines is impressive, service is OK. Always a busy place, so make sure you have your booking done prior your visit. Always very full, so makes you feel a bit like on Barcelona's la bocaria, which is a... More

This busy wine bar and shop is located in a corner on the ground floor of the Gallerija shopping center. It has a massive wall of wine bottles and several little tables attractively scattered about. On our visit, a rainy Saturday afternoon, the two waittreses scuttled about non-stop trying to serve the guests and to sell goods to customers, and... More

Place offers very nice romantic interior and wide range of good wines. Food and snacks are good too, but restaurant size portions. I would recommend this place everyone for romantic occasions. Unfortunately staff is not really friendly and you may expect long waiting times. No proper parking available as almost everywhere in Riga.

The place i visited may not be the main restaurant/wine tasting place, the address.on the website is different to where we were. It is on the grand floor of a shopping mall by a supermarket. we have stopped by everytime. The German riseling we had was much better (shall i say ) than the outside 200 meters wine tasting place...

The first visit started and ended up with disappointment with staff attitude. Acting superior and in a hurry when it comes to order. First asking what to drink before we sat at the table and then 20 minutes waiting until they came with drinks. Small portions and quite expensive. Not to mention that we were reminded to leave in 20... More

Great atmosphere and a fine collection of wines from all over the world. Food was pretty good, but the wine choices were excellent - from all regions of the world and good wines too! If I get to Riga again, I will definitely spend time enjoying the wine and food.

Been there a couple of times, with colleagues (usually here was starting Friday night)... Not so spacious but this is actually not a place for a fully seated dinner. Decent assortment of wines, good cocktails, friendly staff around the bar. Here you are taking hits on foot! When the boat starts rocking, change place...

We were walking outside on a Friday afternoon, when we just saw this place. It was our anniversary and we longed for a glas of champagne, so we went in. It was love at first sight. Great wines, good food and warm service. We will return the next time we are in Riga.

This lively place is very welcoming, extensive offering of wine and food all of top quality. The atmosphere is joyful, not too noisy. Service is happy and efficient. And you can buy some wine or spirits with a 5% discount after dinner!

Every time I come to Riga, this is where I go. Casual and friendly and gradually better and better food. But the focus is on wine, and you can get a lot of good wines per glass. The attached shop contains 800 different wines, and any wine you select from the shop you can have with dinner, at a surcharge... More
