The worst service than anywhere else. We sat for 30 minutes and the waiters walked past us but didn't notice us. It happens here all the time.

We had a lovely time and enjoyed great food for a small price. We enjoyed a local meatball dish with a nice beer and as dessert a black balsam! In the weekend there is live local music, the atmosphere is nice.

You know the saying "you get what you pay for"? This is a perfect example of it. The food costs almost nothing but it's barely edible. Everything tastes off and is overly fatty. This is not a place you go to for food. It's only...good for beers and live music but if you feel claustrophobic definitely avoid it as it is in a smelly basement with no windows or anything. Also there is no service. You have to pretty much order your stuff at the bar and then they bring it to your table... The food took over an hour to arrive and it was not even that busy.More

Ala simply delivers, every time. What I really like after all this time is their menu, the beers, and the atmosphere. Keep the good game going, guys.

The restorant is unfriendly for children. They say that children don’t have a Covid injection so its not allowed to go in with family inside.

This is a true gem of Riga! I really enjoyed the evening spent there with friends. The staff was very polite and friendly, the beer selection is great, and the food is worth tasting!

We had little time in Riga and went here because of good reviews (we wanted to have some Latvian food). The place is very busy. Menu is a bit limited but the food we ordered (we didn't go for any spectacular 1 kilo meat fishes)...was fresh and tasty. Beer was good. All in all, a decent place to quench one's hunger and thirst, but I didn't find it super-atmospheric.More

Can't wait for this place to re-open! Fantastic beans in bread, local beers and food. Medieval style basement with a wonderful atmosphere, lively and must-visit place in Riga.

This place has a great atmosphere. The beers are delicious and so is the food. It s a must go to when in Riga. Try to stop by during music night for a livelier atmosphere

Place a little bit wild and dusty. Like a real rock pub. But It is still ok for foreigners to come, drink and order some dishes. Bartenders look like the ones from fancy plaeces. If you want a little bit more convenient and... More

Hi, I think around 7.30 for 8, and I'd absolutely reccommend booking a table, it gets heaving in there. Excellent place!
