Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an authentic cellar club, noisy busy and great fun. The service struggled with some large groups, but it was cheerful and improved. We went hoping to hear music but it was Monday and apparently there is no music on Mondays. The food was...fine, our desert was amazing. Well worth a visitMore

This club serves great Latvian food and has some of the best food items Latvia has to offer. The garlic bread is to die for and the rye bread pudding was really good too. For mains we tried Latvian meatballs and fish of the day...which turned out to be lake trout. Both mains were served hot and fresh and our favourite Latvian side dish - stewed sauerkraut - came with the meatballs. The restaurant has a lot of drink options but we tried some lindenberry flower tea and a nice cherry kriek beer. The restaurant is located on the south side of Riga's old town and is near St. Peter's Church. The restaurant is set in an old basement and has a medieval charm to it. The restaurant has several cultural experiences throughout the week including Latvian folk dancing and live music so it is worthwhile checking their schedule in advance and making a reservation on their website. When we went it was on a later on a Tuesday and we had no issues getting a table but we were in a side room rather than the charming main area. The service is pretty quick and efficient here but you may spend more time here than intended if you plan on drinking. They have a good beer selection and deals if you buy in larger volumes so it is worthwhile to go with friends or large groups.More

The ambience, the culture, the staff, the food, and the LIVE MUSIC… what a spectacular night! Huge shoutout to our server, Diāna, who took so much time on a busy night to walk us through the local wine recommendations, checked in on us throughout our...dancing on the dance floor, and just really made it an authentic unforgettable evening!More

This was such a perfect evening! There was a really great choice of drinks and the decor and atmosphere was amazing. Halfway through the evening there was a live band which really added to the ambience. The food was incredible, especially the fried garlic break....I also really recommend the rhubarb wine and the honey and ginger beer. Definitely a must visit in Riga.More

Food, atmosphere and service were excellent, and prices really fair. Portion sizes were also very fair, did not leave there hungry. Tablebooking needed.

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!
