This is a small, friendly pub. I ate stew and had a beer and it was €11. The server spoke English and was very nice. I would return.

Time by time I have my lunch in Karjala bar. I can say that it is one of the best places in old town where to have you lunch. It is cheap and very delicious (food is really fresh), cannot understand why it is not...crowded with people in lunch time.More

Visited Karjala again a couple of times recently. It has the same virtues and is one of my favourite places to eat in Riga. It is unpretentious and seems very Finnish (and popular with the Finnish community in the city). In one visit on a...weekend evening, small groups of young people in group costumes were stopping in to enjoy some party games but nothing out of hand. The food is delicious and very tasty. The Finnish Polar Monkey beers are also excellent. Staff are friendly. We left just after the karaoke started - that is clearly an established event for which the bar regulars have prepared in advance so that could be a highlight of your visit...or not...but fun anyway!More

At the time the bar and the terrace were almost empty, so it was a really nice place to hang out and drink few beers. Service was very friendly.

Delicious pepper steak and selection of Finnish drinks, and top of all was the hosted karaoke evening. Friendly staff. Worth visiting definitely.

Surprising place in Old city of Riga. My friend invited us to celebrate her birthday in this place - it was surprise, I didnt knew, that its place like that exist - nice food, lot of different dishes, done for special order, excellent service and...party with karaoke on the top of it. Homely, like in Finland.More

Interesting bar with Finnish ice hockey team paraphernalia as decor. When asked, the waitress didn't know anything about the team. Local bar menu.
