Description: This ultra cool restaurant/wine bar has an amazing location - on the internal square in front of the uber-chic Bergs hotel. The interior design is so unique - recycled car seats and other components. In Garage they serve everything from breakfast, to lunch, to happy hour, to dinner and after-dinner drinks. Their specialty is wine with tapas (their wine list is really interesting and product of in-depth research). It is the THE trendy and stylish place for young professionals and the beautiful crowd of Riga. A must see for a sophisticated travelled (although, important bit, their prices are democratic, as the name of the restaurant says).

Although the food was very nice and it was beautifully decorated the service we received was below average and diminished the value of the whole experience.
The menu was very small and a vegetarian option was missing, but the dishes we received were very tasty.

Had a cangoroo stake. The sauce was to die for and the service was superb. Great place. Good wine selection. Left my wallet behind and was chased down the streets by a very kind waiter who gave it back to me.

This is a cosy restaurant serving Tapas and good food. The owner is very friendly and helpful, even read our mind and went through the trouble of specially setting a table outside so that we could wait for Lady Gaga while having a drink.

We went to this nice place quite late for a romantic glass of wine and were not disappointed. The service was great, vine of course - tasty and place was lit almost entirely with the help of candles.

It is not a restaurant, but there are some food choices you can have and also watch the chef prepare them in front of you.

It is also located in one of the nicest areas in Riga - Berga Bazars, with other good restaurants and shops nearby.
