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).

“Great wine, service and atmosphere - great value”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We had a very enjoyable evening at Garage. The wine selection was excellent and although the food chic was more limited it was really nice tapas. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Definitely worth a visit (rather than the snooty Bergs restaurant next door).
We had a selection of tapas (I think it was 12 small dishes) and they were all lovely.

“Stylish wine bar in the romantic Berga Bazars block”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

A popular place to hang out with your friends- stylish interior, great service and wine list. Food is very good but only as a compliment to the atmosphere and wine. Garage is located conveniently in the romantic and luxurious Berga Bazars in the very city center.

“Great tapas, great service”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Went here for tapas, and you only had to select the bunber of dishes, not the contents. We got 25 dishes between the four of us, and it was all very tasty. The service was excellent. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic, fun, delicious.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Well worth the trip a few steps off the main street. We had a pleasant greeting and personal attention from Klauss. Tapas were freshly prepared. Salad & lamb were perfectly seasoned. Definitely order dessert. The music playing in the background was a great mix of rock, alternative, & acoustic, which made it a great atmosphere for us. We enjoyed talking with Klauss. We enjoyed the Latvian beer & a merlot. Overall just a really great night out.
