I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of my walking tour guide and was not disappointed. Firstly, the name is misleading, it's not a pub, it's a restaurant. 'Pub' would have put me off visiting without the recommendation. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and...More

Nice little place in the old town. We only had lunch but it was good value. House wine was reasonably priced and fairly decent. Some Latvian friends took us there and went back continuously throughout their trip to Riga.

The food is good but waiting for it may annoy the heck out of you. Otherwise, the idea of adding garlic to everything is pretty cool.

The pub itself is small but nice. The main was good but did not have as much garlic as one would have guessed. But all the missing garlic is added to the dessert- one of the worst experiences of my life. I have had garlic...More
