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 is easy to find something to fill hungry bellies. The restaurant is cafeteria style, with lots of options. I had the perch and it was fantastic. If you like pickles, I encourage you to try their style. I eat at Lido's every time I...am in Riga.More

Cheap place to eat. Food is ok for the money. Fish is never tasty. The country with the sea cost. In terms of cleaning it is ok.

Good and typical food. To understand how much the food cost, it's not complet understandable and a little expensive to other restaurants for local people.

Visited for an evening meal with 5 friends. It's a self-service buffet where you collect the dishes you fancy then pay and find a table. The food was very reasonably priced and was also pretty delicious without being anything too fancy. It was perfect for...what my group wanted, which was a quick and easy meal before we went drinking.More

I was very disappointed due to the service. After all payments, waiter asked for the covid pass certificate from me and my wife. One certificate was ok, another he couldn't scan. For this reason it was rejected to use table inside. I showed the waiter...certificates, that covid was positive before one month and all covid passport certificates were issued according to these results... The waiter's reaction according this was zero. We are foreign people, we don't know about the rules inside and we are using certificates which were issued in Lithuania.... Such a big restaurant, but no back inspection of QR codes. It is very shame... After a question do you have any free space in the terrase...answer was I don't know... Finally one chef went to the terrase and found free table for us(thanks for him). What can I say about terrase: everywhere are notes...please keep two meters distance. Few tables are with the distance less than one, without any protection(please see photo). There are no napkins on the table... No space to walk...More

As the title says this is an excellent buffet-style restaurant with a very wide variety of options. I always go to Lido a couple of times when staying in Latvia. There is a lot of different options, the food tastes good and the prices are...quite low.More

Great place to try some of the local food in a setting that is real. Very busy at lunch and the staff moved people through the process quickly. Not being a Latvian speaker it was great to see some of the different dishes (verses a...menu and Google Translates) and try the local food. This may be a budget option, but was one of the most enjoyable meals I had in Riga. The windows displays were well decorated for the autumn season as you entered the cafeteria. Food was fresh and a very large selection to suit almost everyone!More

Loved it. Good food. I ordered grilled chicken and fried potatoes with mushroom sauce. I don’t recommend draft beer, I didn’t like it.
