No frills but if you want a drink without paying inflated prices round the corner at other high end places then this is the place. Would recommend this establishment to any other... More

I wanted to have a quick dinner near my hotel. I also wanted to try the Latvian National Dish, grey peas and bacon. I ordered a beer, and saw the peas and ham were on the menu. They were served in a bowl with a glass of kefir/buttermilk. It was a great dish. So good I bought a kilo of... More

This restaurant offers food at a decent price. The food was good and felt authentic latvian. The service didn't feel that organised, but that is probably part of how it should feel in that local bar. We had seats outside and with good weather we enjoyed food and beer.

Stopped here to have a drink. Prices are very low, as it's a local sports bar. Locals come here to watch sports and have a beer. The waiter wasn't used to tourists coming for fancy drinks, one of the locals told me. So we just asked him to mix a drink of his choice. It was so good that we... More

we found this bar in a courtyard not far from St Peters church. It was full of locals enjoying their beer at very reasonable prices

The bartender is kind and helpful, can suggest you the beer you would like. there is is a wide choice of good local beers. We sat outside to have a short beer break from walking, but we were still within city fuss, people were passing by. There was nice atmosphere.

Located right in the heart of old town. Great beer and simple but tasty food can make your stay in Riga memorable. Great atmosphere. Very good hospitality by local people. Thank you very much to the owner of this place. I will be happy to visit Riga again and pop in for a pint.
