Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I almost never submit reviews for places I have been, but Duvel's Gastro Pub in Old Town Riga is an exception. If you like Belgian beer, this is a must-must-visit location. The list of available Belgian beers, both draft and bottled, is the best I...have seen anywhere. It is truly impressive and that alone is worth the visit. But the food is also excellent, having had a serving of pork ribs and my wife a steak salad. Both were tasty and plentiful. We were also made to feel very welcome by the server Andrew, who clearly cared that we enjoyed our meal but, even more importantly, that I myself did not overlook some of the more unusual and delectable Belgian beer offerings. He went out of his way to make the evening a memorable one. If you are looking for high quality food, savory Belgian beer, and great service this is your place.More

We went to have a dinner at gastropub inspired by the good reviews on tripadvisor. We are not any kind of high standard ”food critics” nor do we have high expectations of pub food, but gastropub still managed to disappoint us. We ordered burgers; the...meat inside was some kind of ”industrial meat”, definetly pre made in a factory and not 100% meat. It tasted like some kind of fastfood steak that you would have if you buy a microvawe hamburger from the grocery store. The frenchfries of the meal were the cheapest frozen fries you can have from the store. At least in that point when we had the chek, we regretted that we didn’t go to McDonalds, Hesburger, burgerking etc. 2 burgers (my spouse sadly took the burger with double meat, thinking he’s gonna get real beef burger steak) and 2 sodas were total 35,80€. Even 250ml coca-cola cost 2,5€, without ice. I highly recommend you to avoid this place. For us this changed the whole vibe of the trip, and were left with the feeling of untrust towards the restaurant menus.More

We were here with 4 persons after eeading nice reviews from tripadvisor. We shared some tapas-platter as a started which was good. They also have a wide, good beerlist where to find a proper one for everyone… for maincourse the kids had a hamburger which...they liked. I took a ribeye steak. I ordered the steak raw-medium but it was almost well-done. It was not dry and taste was good, vut I mentioned about it to our waiter who said they are sorry and asked some service-chief to check it. Chief was quite arrogant with suoer bad customer service attitude and claiming that steak is medium minus… that took the feeling away from nice dinner. Our normal waiter was really good and service orientated which saved a lot. Ib the end I got tasty belgium waffel for free as dessert for steak being something else than ordered and nice Riga Balsams after that (to save this review). Nice place!More

Overall liked it, service was polite and fast, speaking good English, good pub atmosphere, although they were out of some beers and some dishes. The onion rings and the burger could have more taste, but overall okay. Tiger prawns tempura is a good choice for...starter snack.More

Had tried to make a reservation at a similar restaurant before arriving in Riga but didn’t hear anything back. Went to said restaurant and was told they were fully booked and to try this place. Went to the restaurant and asked if they had a...table for 6 for the following night but they were immediately they were cold and off before realising we weren’t a British stag party and then were slightly more welcoming. Turned up on the night and the staff were again cold and rude before realising we had a table booked, first drinks took an age to turn up, the waiter couldn’t follow simple orders (table of 6, 2 wanted a starter each, 4 wanted to have 2 starters to share) to the point we had to repeat the order 4 times as in his words “ we don’t make sense”. Starters were good, next drink order took 20 mins to come, then for mains, 5 meals came together, the 6th (a burger) didn’t arrive until most of the party had finished the meal around 15 mins later - the others couldn’t wait as the meals were luke warm to start with. We had to ask where this meal was 3 times only to be told “2 mins” every time we managed to get their attention. In total a simple 2 course meal took 2.5 hours, and was the most expensive meal we had in Riga. The quality of the food was good (4/5 - just not hot enough But had the same issue at other places in Riga) the service was 1/5).More

If you visit Riga strongly consider this place.The interior and outside terrace of the tavern is a feast for eyes.We ordered burger,fish and chips,mussels.Liked extra potatoes for mussels.There were not many people in the pub,so we did not wait very long for the dishes,but I...guess that on Friday evening there can be some delays.Not sure.The service was excellent,Vitalīj made us feel very comfortable and we didn’t want to leave.More
