“Fantastic For What It Is”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

I'm not one to usually enjoy large corporate places, but Stargorod gets it right from beginning to end, The services was the best I've had in Riga. Everyone was pleasant and helpful with no rolled eyes, arguments, and heavy sighs as one often gets here.

The beer was nice. Not craft beer, but a good local brew. Quite drinkable. The food was quite good, with huge portions. Three of us shared one portion of duck, which cost around 18 euro, making it very good value for money.

One of the things that really struck me was the attention to detail. Someone really but thought into the place, and it shows.

The entertainment for children was appreciated as it kept the little monsters at other tables occupied and quiet.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

My husband and I accidentaly got here during our stay in Riga. The property is situated in the historical building facing the river. We were realy amazed with everything from the start to the end. Despaite this fact that it was a Friday evening and the reastaurant was full, and we came without any booking, they found us a very cozy table. The were many waitreses in the restaurant, you needn't waiting for a long time to order, or for your dishes or payment or etc. There was a live music, and a game - every table could choose the song from the small songsbook and sang the song standing on the chairs together with the musicians. The best singers :) won the prize - a beer (I guess the programm possible only on weekends) The evening language was latvian/russian. Shoud say the live beer was prepared on they own. Menu includes czesh, german, latvian dishes. The top of the evening was a special dish - grilled pig, which had been grilled outside just in front of the restaurant. Everybody in the restaurant could order the part of it. We didn't try, because we had just finished our dinner and didn't have any space in the stomach. A piece of advice - ask the waitres if there would be any special evening dish. Our diner cost us 45 Euros ( a beer soup; a half of duck with apples; snacks for beer ; the beer 3x0,25; 1x0,5 and a cup of coffee). Not very cheap, but the meal was great and we had a realy great time here. Highly recommended for people who would like to have a good meal in a cheerful mood. P.S. the WC was perfect too :)

“Czech style pub and brewery”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

As this new place in Riga is opened near to my office, than I was visited it with my colleagues for business lunch.
The first impression is very good, at the entrance you will be greeted by friendly manager. Also, the good point is that at the entrance lobby are available wardrobe with dresser. Therefore, you can without haste take off your coat and manager will take you to table.
As I mentioned before, that we choses business lunch - set of soup, main course and pear lemonade. As this place also is a brewery, than there are enough big choice of the life beer and I also take one for taste.
The food and beer was very tasty and as a "raisin" was complement to beer - roasted sunflower seeds :).
Service also was very good, fast. Stuff is very friendly and very respondent.
Atmosphere and design is very typical to Czech or German pub - a very big space, a lot of tables and dominating rustic style used a lot of timber, antique stone tiles etc.
Our waiter was recommend to visit also a man toilet as there are can be found surprise :) . Surprise really can be found there, but it will be secret as it's can be found just at man side :). But one more surprise is that man and women toilets are connected by room, which can be locked by both sides, there are no video cameras, there are mirror and soft sofa...... Enjoy.
Generally menu for dinner is very big and looks very tasty, I definitely will come back try dinner stuff.
The business lunch + beer and coffee = 10 Eur

I will come back with review after the dinner.
