Cosy cellar for good food and beer

Nice selection of traditional Latvian food and also local beer all very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was good. Came for dinner and the food was really good - there's really no point having a starter when mains are so meaty! Would defo come here again!

Decided to eat here on the first night after reading good reviews. Nice restaurant set in a cellar. Cosy feel which after walking around in the cold for a few hours was lovely. Very quiet when we went and the service was very laid back to say the least. Food was traditional Latvian with a decent selection on the menu.... More

Nice restaurant in the basement with a good atmosphere. The food was brilliant with good spices and colors. A bit sad that the meat was served with standard pommes frites. Really a place that I reccomend.

AFter wandering around the city center, we worked up an appetite. A coworker recommended Alus aresenals, so that's where we went. They weren't too busy and we had our choice of tables. Some areas were too dark to even see the menu. They were out of a few beers and entrees that we requested. The meals we chose were tasty,... More

The restorāns is in a pretty convenient location in Centrs, not far from Town Hall Square. Alus Arsenāls means "beer arsenal" & the layout certainly had the appearance of a beer cellar - located in the basement with wall recesses with faux beer barrels protruding from them; an arched ceiling tapered on either side giving a slightly cramped feeling (alternately...

We stopped by the patio for a drink and snacks on a lovely summer day. They have a very comfortable outdoor section with a good location to watch the people, admire the buildings, enjoy the plentiful flowers and look at the multiple, quirky sculptures sprinkled throughout the square. It would have been very difficult not to have a good time.... More

Terrible service, waited about 30 mins before our order was taken and then almost an hour before we received our food and drinks. The main meal was simply awful and honestly tasted like sweaty feet.

I have never eaten anywhere as bad as this before. The service was slow and we were left for a long time before our order was taken. The food was inedible and the chicken and potato pancakes was the absolute pits.
