Go here!!! I was looking for a restaurant that serves real Latvian food and where Latvian people go, and this is it. They have a great selection of food and beer, and definitely an authentic Latvian experience. Also, super friendly service and the menu is in English.

We came the night before but it was really busy, so we made a reservation for the night after. Good beer, good food, very good prices, waiter was very friendly, and the live music was nice.

This restaurant was excellent - busy, cool atmosphere with daily live music, friendly staff, wide selection of food and drinks and super affordable prices! I first saw this place on trip advisor and had planned it into our schedule to visit, but then we asked a lady working at one of the local stores where she would recommend going and... More

Huge selection of beers, various beer snacks and also main dishes. most of them are traditional Latvian. The whole athmosphere is very relaxing and Latvian. Located in the old Riga, but the prices are fairly low. 3L (even more in the pitcher) of beer for 13 euros is a must! Come here if you want to experience autentic(ish) Latvian pub.

I thought this place would be hokey, but it was great! I am an American Latvian and was thrilled to see the enthusiasm the young people had for participating in the traditional dancing on the Wednesday "dance night". The food was really good and inexpensive. The word "ala" means cave, and don't be turned off by the not so nice... More

We had a great dinner in this big restaurant with our 3 years old baby, with a lot of tables and a stunning old style atmosphere! Dishes was very good, we had the beer plate (composed by cheese, hams and the best warm bread we had all long our holidays) and then the salmon main course! Everything was perfect, we... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It's cheap and not a tourist trap compared to the restaurants in the squares. The only downside is the service isn't as good since the place is very busy. Make sure you get there before 7pm get a table.

Just amazing. Good beer accompanied by just as good food. Meatballs were great, appetizires tasty and rich. There's a probability you would not walk in on a whim, the entrance is longish, but at the end there is a cellar room that looks amazing!

We have had lunch today and the result has been excellent! When you entered to the restaurant you are not conscious of the fantastic atmosphere that is breathen inside. Food is excellent and not expensive: 1 starter + 2 main dishes + 2 beers= 23€ I would recommend with any doubt to go and have a meal or a drink... More
