Alus Arsenal , a nice bar and food selection

Called in for lunch and a drink and pleasantly surprised by the selection of beers, most hand pumped, wines and food. We opted for shrimp with cheese cooked and served in a saucepan. Very tasty and good value, with great service.

We just wanted to eat something today and we accidentally took that restaurant. I was very surprised about their. It was so juicy and fresh. It is very difficult to find it so tasty outside the USA.

Atmospheric restaurant in a cellar. Good range of local dishes accompanied with a good selection of beers at very reasonable prices. Excellent sausages and black puddings. Baltic sardines for starters and the ubiquitous garlic bread to go with your beer.

We came for Sunday lunch at about 2 and it was very quiet. The choice of food was good, my husband ordered the ribs which were very substantial and I ordered the chicken and cheese casserole with crisps and 3 different dips which was light and did not fill me up. My husband struggled to drink anymore beer for a... More

Went here on a Saturday evening and they gave us a table that was already reserved for another party. We had drinks shortly after and the waitress warned us that food would be a little slow as there was a party of 30 there. Regardless we were still eating within 30 minutes of placing our order. Food was quite good.... More

Well, we went to the restaurant on a feeling that it should be kind of restaurant with tasty local beers and delicious local food - according to Tripadvisor as well. We got non of that. Beer tasted like made on own bathroom and the ribs were flavoured with a boiled water. So nothing very delicious. We really don't recommend this... More

This restaurant could be a very nice place: located in the Old Town, nice design, good menu, tasty food and very good local beer, but bad service just kills good impression. From time to time all staff simply disappeared somewhere in service rooms for a long time. We’ve got impression that we disturb them from doing something real important, and... More
