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.

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.

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).
