We ate here for lunch on one of the sunnier days we had in Riga and the shade over the tables outside was welcome. I had a smoked trout and shrimp salad and my husband had spaghetti carbonara which were both delicious.

Seems like a popular place. Quite friendly staff. Quite loud music but food was good. Plus for vegetarian food.

Stumbled onto this place on a chilly rainy evening in Riga. Drawn in by cozy awnings and heaters and great music playing. Ordered local beer on tap, chicken wings appetizer, and 2 different salads for dinner. Everything was excellent! Including our charming young waitress Nadina....Thoroughly enjoyed!!!More

Delicious, quick and friendly. Everything we needed for a late lunch/early dinner at approx 3pm. The duck was super yummy! While the food is great, what makes this place stand out is the unique interiors! Very quirky and eclectic! Worth a visit alone for that...alone. We were pleasantly surprised to find no alcohol 0.0% beer too. The chocolat fondant for dessert is a must try!More

I was very happy to notice that there was VEGAN burgers and other options! Great and responsible restaurant! Only minus that I tried to change my fries to fried veggies but that wasn't possible.

I really like this place, and always returning back when visiting to Riga. They let me enter inside with Corona pass, food was delicious again and concert in the TV was played with a excellent quality of sound.

Stumbled on this place by accident, and I'm glad we did. The lamb pelmeni was absolutely delicious, as were the meat dishes. Decently priced too. Service was a little brusque at first, but I've experienced much worse. Recommended!

Walking around Riga on Sunday looking for food. Went to 2 other places which were supposed to be open, but weren't. Walked passed Garaza and it smelled so good we decided to stop. So glad we did. It's located on a quiet, picturesque, side street....The service was excellent, and our waiter spoke very good English. The food was extremely good. My wife had the wild game burger and it was delicious. I had potato pancakes (hashbrowns) and black sausage. Also very good, but my wife clearly won. But the pièce de résistance for me at least was the whisky selection. It was outstanding. I wound up with Ardbeg Uigeadail. I asked for water on the side, and they even provided a dropper.More
