Get down the stairs and you will be in the Ala (Cave). Enormous value for money, good food, good beer, and really authentic. I've been there for lunch, may be crowded in the evening as it is a place also for locals. You should not miss this place.

If you're into local or craft beers, this place is a must. Dozens of them to choose from (many on tap) in a great underground atmosphere with live music. The beers a excellent value too. Very cheap compared to most places in Riga and especially the rest of Europe. Good, fast drink service and very friendly staff. Don't miss it.

Went here for lunch on a weekday. It has a good selection of Latvian dishes, both mine and my girlfriends were very delicious. Meals were large and the price was quite reasonable. Not busy when we went. It's quite a large place in a themed basement. Lots of varieties of beers and drinks, wish I could have tried more. I... More

Going down the steps into this underground cavern is a bit scary but SO worth it. The food was delicious. The portions were certainly man size. Value for money was excellent. Beer range was amazing. The whole place had atmosphere. Top of my list of restaurants to return to in Riga

typical eastern european tavern located underground with classic furniture and surroundings. The service was fast and friendly but if you go there a bit late you may not find all the dishes of the menu. Huge portions, typical eadtern european cuisine, fat, meaty and full of various goodies (cheese, bacon, peas, carrots and sourcrout). The final surprise wad the bill.... More

Smiltenes, Smiltenes.. Where art thou Smiltenes? I wish I could find that wonderful wine here in India. After looking for this place for around an hour, we finally stumbled upon it and happily glided down the stairs. The staff was so friendly and hospitable and the decor of the restaurant was mesmerizing. I LOVED the food. Me being an extremely... More

I'm so glad my friends and I stopped here for dinner. I ordered the potato pancakes and a skillet dish that was kind of a stew covered in goat cheese. Both of these were amazing, and the bill was extremely reasonable--I think it was around 8 euro for everything. The atmosphere was quite relaxed, but those with a hearing problem... More
