This place was a real find for us. We ventured into the bar area looking for somewhere to sit and eat. The waitress told us that there is a restaurant upstairs which was much more cozy. Drinks available too. The best bit is the really extensive and varied menu. Hint .. this is very close to the great bakery Rigenis.

I really like this place, even though I am not a big beer drinker. The food is great, and it looks like they made their portions smaller within past year, which is actually nice. My first visit was in a summer of 2015, and the plate size for some of their dishes was simply overwhelming. There is a good selection... More

We don't drink beer but the wine was also nice. My beef salad was not the best of my life but OK. Prices are the same as other places in the Old Town. Waiter was friendly, the service was quick. I think this Restaurant is a good option for a rest during sightseeing.

Great informal place to dine and enjoy the ambience of old Riga. It was a wet night so we sat inside at a wall table. Not at all crowded until half-way through the Euro Cup game when people were everywhere. No problems as all were well behaved and seemed to like the atmosphere; lots of couples. Food was great. We...

We wiled away a few nice hours here whilst enjoying the fantastic weather in Riga. A nice selection of beers and incredible list of whisky choices if that's your thing. Service was good and the food was superb. Great place for people watching and listening to the live music from the bar opposite. Would recommend.

For me as a full-time local of Riga, Brevings has been one of the primary go-to places in the Old Town for a few years now, basically in any season of the year. The dishes are generally well cooked, hearty, and nicely sized, not over-complicated in a good way. I think it would be fair to say that this is... More

Is a nice and cheap pub in the city center. We stayed there because it was close to our hostel. We dined there and we discovered that is full of brands of beers :)

This was an early evening in April, so by no means a busy time. The bar part of the place was somewhat busy but the restaurant - upstairs - had only one other occupied table, yet both food and drink took longer than I would have expected. That aside, the waitress was cheerful and helpful and the food was solid,... More
