Called in a couple of times during my visit to Riga, only had a drink (good pint) didn't sample the food so will not comment. The service was friendly and quick great location for people-watching and sports available inside. Not cheap but not expensive either.

I always call into Paddy Whelan's when visiting Riga during the Summer and Winter. They have a great selection of beers and good pub food, which is reasonably priced. You can sit out in the rear courtyard or the front terrace during the Summer months....More

Paddy Whelan's - the first Irish pub in the Baltic's! Since 1995 we have been offering more than 50 beloved local and global beers and ciders, including the classic Irish Guinness, our own Užava, Brenguļi, Valmiermuiža and other beers, and many more. We also offer a wide range of foods, and because we never want to limit our taste buds, we have traditional Irish dishes, popular burgers and sandwiches, breakfast and lunch offers, popular Latvian foods for our local fans, and our pride and joy - homemade Indian foods at affordable prices! We are still one of the most popular venues in Rīga for live sports broadcasts, leisurely evenings, and a chance to meet local Latvians, local foreigners and guests of the city who have stopped by for a pint of beer, a glass of whiskey and a tasty meal. We are a member of the Latvian Association of Hotels and Restaurants, and we are delighted to help out in improving the hospitality environment in Rīga and throughout Latvia. No matter from where you come and no matter what you do on a daily basis, Paddy Whelan's will always welcome you. Come on in, have a seat, and enjoy a glass of beer. Maybe two.
