Went to the Ala on the recommendation of our hotel receptionist and certainly didn't disappoint. Great selection of beers ( around €2). Subterranean setting with domed ceilings, decent food ( we had the sharing "snack" platter for five ( lots of it!). It's a great venue which got progressively busier- word gets round!!

You could quite easily miss this or be put off by the entrance but keep going! Once you get downstairs the atmosphere is great. Our waiter found us a table despite it being full and spent time with us despite being busy to advise on food plus sights to see around the city. I advise you to book in advance... More

One of the best places I have eaten. Great beer, great service, great atmosphere, great prices, extremely interesting dishes. Thanks goodness Wizz Airlines makes it easy and cheap for us to return in a jiffy without breaking the bank. We came twice within 24 hours. Happy husband and happy wife.

From the outside this place doesn't look much, but inside its like a tardis, a underground cellar with traditional music. Food lovely traditional dishes and bar snacks very reasonably priced. Large choice of drinks and wines all at good prices too. Need to book in advance if you want to eat in an evening.

We came here on a Sunday night and it was very busy. We managed to get a table without booking (luckily), and they had a great beer selection. The food was good but not out of this world. The live music was great and the staff were friendly.

Whether it's the food, the drink or the dancing you're visiting Folkklubs for you'll be in for the best treat! Try the honey beer, which is delicious and grandma's meatballs, too.

Every time I visit Riga (fortunately for me that's a lot) I will stop here. This is the place I recommend when people ask me 'where should I visit in Riga?' The food is local style with many craft beers and local wines on offer at a very reasonable price. Staff here are extremely friendly and knowledgable. Every time I... More
