Traditional cellar restaurant, bar and club in Rigas Old Town. Mostly frequented by students. Good menue with typical latvian dishes. Big choice of beers. Nearly every day there are special music activities or performances, scheduled or spontanous. It may happen, that one person stands up, plays the piano, and the whole venue is singing along. Clear evidence for the often quoted influence of music on latvian history and culture.

This is a fantastic bar in Riga. We visited in January and this was the only place that was always lively - even on a Monday night! The bar staff were excellent, spoke very good English, and really made us feel welcome. The food menu is small but really good. We ate there 2 nights and couldn't fault it at all! On our first night (Saturday) we had 2 starters, 2 mains and about 5 drinks each and the whole bill came to £25! There are local bands there at the weekend which draws an excellent crowd - you can't help but enjoy the music even if you don't understand Latvian! Don't miss out on a fantastic evening if in Riga - you won't regret it!

Great beers - about 15 on tap, all cheap and tasty (only got through half of them!)
Food is generous and something different which is always what you want in a new city.
Potato cakes great as were the pork chops. Not the best food ever, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Very reasonable - starter and main course each plus 3 pints each, 21 Lats.
It was packed for a Monday night, good mixture of locals and people who had obviously either been recommended the place or seen reviews online.
I would definitely return!

I highly recommend this place. I went there with my wife for dinner, a few drinks and to enjoy the live music that was playing that night. The atmosphere is great - an authentic old Riga cellar, with arched brick ceiling, candlelight, friendly staff that were most helpful, old Latvian artefacts decoratively scattered around and a different feel in every room. We were impressed by the food - authentic Latvian dishes elegantly presented with a modern day touch. Delicious and great value. The beer selection is the best I have seen anywhere in Riga. Many beers on tap are from small breweries and the barman was happy to explain where they are from, what style they are, etc. They had a local band playing live music and we got some information from the bar about other concerts and events they have coming up - so we are definitely going again. All up, a great find - highly recommended.
