“Traditional and vibrant bar-tavern”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Lovely bar-tavern in a basement of a building in Riga's old town. Low prices, good food quality and original Latvian cuisine. Full of young people, students etc. it's a great place to have a (latvian) beer, meet people, listen to music and dance in a very relaxed atmosphere. Try it if you want to mix with locals!

“Thumbs up”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Get down the stairs and you will be in the Ala (Cave).
Enormous value for money, good food, good beer, and really authentic.
I've been there for lunch, may be crowded in the evening as it is a place also for locals.
You should not miss this place.

“Didn't try the food, but the beer was superb! A must of any beer lover.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

If you're into local or craft beers, this place is a must. Dozens of them to choose from (many on tap) in a great underground atmosphere with live music.

The beers a excellent value too. Very cheap compared to most places in Riga and especially the rest of Europe.

Good, fast drink service and very friendly staff.

Don't miss it.

“Delicious and great value.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went here for lunch on a weekday. It has a good selection of Latvian dishes, both mine and my girlfriends were very delicious. Meals were large and the price was quite reasonable. Not busy when we went. It's quite a large place in a themed basement.

Lots of varieties of beers and drinks, wish I could have tried more. I would have liked to visit in the evening.

If you're looking for traditional Latvian fare, make sure you go here!
