We were recommended to come here by Tourist information- we certainly weren't disappointed- need to book seat though- hidden out of the main area- felt safe walking there- absolute gem of a restaurant- catering for all and reasonable price too!

Amazing place with a great atmosphere, being in a basement cavern we were shocked at the size of the place. The entertainment was amazing, traditional and up beat. Spent 4 hours, we had 2 courses each, few beers and beer tasting platter and it all came to €45... so very cheap and huge traditional portions. We went on a Friday... More

Don't think this is just a folk club. It's a bar that most evenings has some folk music on (we went on a Monday and no live music that night). It's a cellar bar with a great atmosphere and good pub food. Beer costs 2 - 3 Euros, compared with some bars charging 5. Only complaint was they have a... More

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
