Bar is actually a restaurant, serving also main dishes, although from limited menu. Visited for a couples night out with my wife, we had some drinks and ate from starters menu grilled prawns and beef tartar. Prawns were great, tartar average. But the atmosphere was...More

This place is located right next to the main entrance to hotel Bergs. We went here on a Monday night, so the place wasn't overly crowded. The dishes change often, and the seasonal thing for July was mushrooms. The Chantarelle soup and different Tapas we...More

Came here for a late lunch, their lunch menu is limited either the set course or limited tapas. I went with the entire set lunch and thought it was ok. Everything from their business lunch is supposed to be fresher and menu based on what...More

Wallpaper Guide recommendation. And good design for it. The place has quality aspirations and the menu is inspired, if short. The tapas are not expensive but a little bland and lacking in flavour. What really propels me to review and downgrade is the upselling that...More

During a stay at the lovely Hotel Bergs we were lucky enough to have Garage right on our doorstep - what a stroke of luck! The menu consists of a choice of tapas (which can also be ordered as starters) and a short à la...More

The place looks very nice and seems having an interesting menu... But... We asked the waitress if they make "aperol spritz" she said "yes, of course". And the drink itself wasn't bad. At the end, she brought us the bill, which was handwritten on the...More

A place for simple but good food, with a focus on good wine pairing, best dish I had was the fois gras starter, the fish main was good but nothing special. Good wine recomendations to go along.

The service here was great! I had a cold so I could not drink wine so instead they made me warm ginger lemon drink witch was perfect! Thank you. The food I had was great as well.

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).
