We dropped in for a beer and snack and had such a great time we stayed. The atmosphere was upbeat and bustling, our food came in large portions, beautifully cooked, and looking rustic. They carry an incredible range of top quality beers and the young lady who served us was very efficient and pleasant. Into the evening a band of... More

Greeted by a wonderful girl who served us beer. There was so much choice and all of it was good. The atmosphere was comfortable and we were treated to a run down of what beer was good dependent on your taste. Unfortunately we were unable to see the live music as we are going home too soon. It was difficult... More

Our taxi driver from the airport recommended this place to us & we are so glad he did, it was superb for atmosphere, food & beer, a real gem of a place & not just for teens or twenty somethings, it has something to offer everyone. We called here four times during our short stay in Riga & every time... More

We went here to eat before we left for the airport. If we had gone here earlier, we would have eaten here every single day. The food they serve is excellent and comes in big portions, the prices are very low (8,50€ for the 1kg pork hock). It was afternoon and the restaurant was more than half full, the girl... More

Normally I'v would'nt have entry the place, but my company assured me it was a nice place. When entry, there is ...nothing! But going downstrairs , you find yourself in a labirinth of rooms,and at the end, the place to be, the tavern, the pub, the restaurant,the "gig" stage. Not a lot of people (at that time" but still enough... More

We went here because of other trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It's a good idea to ask your hotel to make you a reservation - we did this and got a great table a few seats back from the stage. Definitely make a reservation though because the place, even though large, filled up quickly - and not that... More

In Latvian language, Ala means "Cave". I usually drink black Balsam with Latvian and foreign friends here. Well, you can order the food as well, but I suggest drinking is much suitable for this place. In this pub, they have plenty of seats available over there (you can even move them at your convenience :)). For vintage lover, this pub... More

If you want to sample local cuisine and amazing beer this is the place for you! The food is 5 star and there is a vast array of beers and wine to accompany it. The atmosphere here is also fantastic, live music, fantastic buzz and friendly staff!

I can only agree to other reviewers that this is must place to visit in Riga. Not recommended for those who would love to experience something sophisticated. Simple but good food, huge variety of local beers and ciders, very reasonable prices and local music - this is what describes this place the most. Cheerful atmosphere!
