“Worth it”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This place does not have posh pretentions, like other restaurants do. It has an interesting concept, where everything is prepared with garlic, even vodka. If you are a garlic fan go there. Tasty food, homey atmosphere. Recommended.

“Garlic attack!!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I was there in August 2012.
I was on a business trip and my customer invited me there... What could I say????

Resigned, I accepted and.... SURPIRSE, it is really good. And the food was really light.
I never expected to find an ice cream with garlic to be very good, but it really was.
The restaurant itself to be honest is relatively good but nothing really exciting, it worths a try though for its uniqueness.

Only downside? Guess what....

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We would strongly recommend the place to those who love garlic.. but not only that! The food is really delicious and most unexpected nice combinations of meat with chocolate sauce for example... very fresh fish, Riga balsam is used in many recepies.. which is very unusual and very tasty.. worth being tried! And our waited was so friendly and nice! Regards to all the staff of the place from Natasha and Mark!

“Try the cheesecake!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

We tried the Garlic Pub on our first night in Riga - and it didn't disappoint. Garlic flavour is subtle, but really nice, and the orange cheesecake with a hint of garlic was surprisingly good. Service was probably the most cheerful we experienced in Riga - the waitresses actually smiled!
