I booked this restaurant for 11 people over email from the uk and they were so helpful. When we arrived everything was ready for us. We all ordered starters and mains and lots of drinks. If you go do not order starters and main course as the food is massive so choose either or. My friend and I shared the the beer platter with cheese & meat which was amazing then for main I have the sautéed veg, salmon with cheese. The food was truly amazing and the lady serving us was fantastic. The bill came to 15 lats each which was unbelievable, it had a fantastic atmosphere and was full of locals.

Waiters can around huge stacks of beer cups. It's a miracle the cups don't fall down. Cheap enough beer, very crowded. Good traditional bread.

A simple place with well made traditional food for a good price. Great beers and nice atmosphere. The place seems to attract a lot of locals and the bar is busy selling beer. There is usually a live band, so if you want a quite dinner stay away from the chairs near the small stage. There are many cozy corners, where you can hide and drink beer with your friends. I love this place for its happy energy and simple no frills atmosphere. Ok, maybe they try a tiny bit too much to be 'authentic' but it is not over the top. Highly recommend in Riga.

I visited this place last night. From outside it didn't look up to much; stepped inside, down the stairs and found myself in this lovely cellar. I must have been the oldest person in there, lots of student types. I only popped in for one beer. On the recommendation of the very friendly barman, I took a large Madonas beer. Excellent! Tonight was a Karaoke night., but the karaoke came with a twist. Live musicians came to the table and customers were invited (coerced) into singing. After the beer this was not as difficult a task as might otherwise be imagined. I decided to stay for another beer and dinner. Food was traditional and tasty. Four large beers, a starter (grey pea dumplings I think, which i'd recommend) and two main meals; all for about £20. Coupled with the entertainment this was a good night out. Highly recommend, not just to hose on a budget.
