We came here for some small bites in the evening. We ended up having tapas and wine. Both were excellent and we defenitely got our money's worth.

Frequent events are held here (live bands etc.) at this plaza away from traffic, tabled and serviced by Garage wine bar. Good teas, wines and snacks while you enjoy the sun on the cobblestones. Bergs Bazaar shops are right nearby, as is Bergs Hotel.

We found this wine bar just by chance one evening after dinner while wandering about; it is tucked inside a courtyard along a hotel and a few restaraunts. The interiors are dark but interesting, and there is a separate room which would suitable for small private groups. They have a good selection of wines and the service was attentive. If... More

This place is great for a night out with friends or a romantic date. Their olives are to die for and wine is always excellent. Really good service. A sophisticated place with relaxing music.

I really like this place: staff is as friendly as it gets in Latvia, large variety of wines, awesome tapas. The menu changes every day. Great choice for any meal or event, one of my all time favourites.

Hard to find this on Trip Advisor as the name is incorrect. This is a great wine bar in the old market district. We had so much fun trying the different tapas and wines. All the tables are old used farm tables and there's a space for larger parties. Go early - this place fills up. They also sell wine.

We had a very nice meal for two at Garage having a number of the tapas dishes which were very interesting, well presented and full of flavour. The quality and range of the tapas here is very impressive and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting Riga. Although the food was 5/5 i have only given the review 4/5 as... More

Wow - we are so glad we went here! We shared an amazing cheese plate, accompanied by some excellent valpolicella wine. The restaurant import some wines themselves = good value for money. The main course, duck breast served with potato and truffle mash, was absolutely delicious! The rhubarb tart we had for dessert was also very good! Simple but elegant... More

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).
