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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It's nice place to visit if you want to find out something new about Finnish culture, see some rare ice hockey jerseys. Also there is karaoke parties at fridays.

I had a late dinner which was unplanned, but when told they made Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes with brown sauce and Lingonberry jam - I was sold! It was a delight, rich a portion, and at fair price! Looked good on the plate, as served.

Nice service, good beer, the selection could be wider. On the menu there were plenty of classic Finnish delicacies. Although a bar, it seems to be family- and pet-friendly.

Having a partner with food allergies is always hard to find somewhere especially late in the day. The bartender was super friendly. Spoke great English and made sure my wife had everything that she needed in terms of food she could eat. Great range of...local and international beers. Well worth a visit!More

Very good place to full your stomach and recharge after exploring Riga. Asked to upgrade stew with potato slices instead of mashed potatoes. Stew was 9/10, more vegetables would be perfect. Labietis beer - FTW! Thank you.

This is a small, friendly pub. I ate stew and had a beer and it was €11. The server spoke English and was very nice. I would return.

Time by time I have my lunch in Karjala bar. I can say that it is one of the best places in old town where to have you lunch. It is cheap and very delicious (food is really fresh), cannot understand why it is not...crowded with people in lunch time.More

Visited Karjala again a couple of times recently. It has the same virtues and is one of my favourite places to eat in Riga. It is unpretentious and seems very Finnish (and popular with the Finnish community in the city). In one visit on a...weekend evening, small groups of young people in group costumes were stopping in to enjoy some party games but nothing out of hand. The food is delicious and very tasty. The Finnish Polar Monkey beers are also excellent. Staff are friendly. We left just after the karaoke started - that is clearly an established event for which the bar regulars have prepared in advance so that could be a highlight of your visit...or not...but fun anyway!More

At the time the bar and the terrace were almost empty, so it was a really nice place to hang out and drink few beers. Service was very friendly.
