Good atmosphere, low prices, tasty food. A place where the locals hang out, and you really get the Latvian feeling. Delicous garlic bread but don`t take it as a starter for one person; it`s more than enough for 3 persons!! The waiter should have warned us; we ordered 7 plates and ate 3 of them

First - Tripadvisor's map has this restaurant in the wrong place. Look up the street name, don't use the map. Beyond that - A great find. Cheap beer, cheap food, good (if sometimes loud) atmosphere. It was a bit difficult getting the attention of a server at the start, but once on the radar, we had no further problems with... More

We headed here on the recommendation of a friend who found out about the place from a local. We eventually found the restaurant entrance (there's a school which a street runs right through - I've attached a photo to help!). As others have said, they can cater for large groups and despite no booking, they were able to seat us... More

We booked for a table of 10 but ended up having additional friends attend the dinner. They managed to fit us in and the staff were very helpful. The food all arrived at the same time, and the meals were large and very cheap. It was great value for money. We really enjoyed the dancing after. A brilliant night out!... More

Excellent location for live music food and drink. Plenty of good local beers to choose from, the staff were very helpful in advising what to have. The food is top class, generous portions and very good. Lovely ambiance about the place and its all very affordable. Highly recommended for a night out in Riga.

We sought out this underground restaurant on the recommendation of a local who knows we enjoy all kinds of music. "Ala"'is set up for folk performers in their large dining room and all unoccupied tables were reserved when we arrived around 7:30 pm. We found a table near the bar and as we were enjoying a couple of local beers... More

Set in the basement of a very large old building this restaurant, bar and night club offers every thing: low cost very traditional food with at least 27 local beers on tap and complete with local artists at the weekends. You can enjoy a very good night out with out breaking the bank. This is not your ordinarry basement it... More

Great place, atmospheric with a local feel. Generous portions of tasty unpretentious food. Service friendly and efficient. Good value for money. Highly recommended for an escape from the tourist traps.

We were put onto this by someone on our tour who had been to riga before. It's a hidden gem. You go down the stairs into what seems like a cavernous beer hall. Ordered a honey beer and was stunned at it's sweetness and smoothness. Might not be to everyones tasted but I loved it and gulped down 3 steins... More

Lovely bar-tavern in a basement of a building in Riga's old town. Low prices, good food quality and original Latvian cuisine. Full of young people, students etc. it's a great place to have a (latvian) beer, meet people, listen to music and dance in a very relaxed atmosphere. Try it if you want to mix with locals!
