It is very cosy place and I like staff that works there. They are very sweet and helpful. The food is tasty and freshly cocked. There are a lot of people and it makes a good flow of food and you could be sure that it is fresh. Near the entrance you could use disinfection for the hands and basin... More

After a long day city sightseeing with Riga Card, we come to Lido restaurant for dinner this evening. There is plenty of foods to choose from, mainly Latvian style cooking I supposed. I have chosen beef with wine and my wife chose spare ribs. There are plenty of vegetables to choose as well. Food portion here is generous and the... More

While walking the famous upscale Art Nouveau Elizabeth St. we bumped to this place and saw many people, mostly locals. It had a nice rustic ambiance, so decided to give it a try. What a Bingo!! It's a self service restaurant, and the food is displayed in front of you, so you can see what you're about to eat. The... More

When you visit Latvia, this is a must, we have had three meals there and was not dissapointed. This place is unbelievably cheap, the food fresh and tasty. You can have a four course meal including a drink for under €10. The pork scewer is fantastic, the meat is so tender you can cut it with a butter knive.

Actually I really liked this place for several reasons, at first, it's not far from the city centre so you are able to have a lunch there and return to sighseeing, the second is that this restaurant is pretty big so you can find place to seat almost all the time. And also I prefered this place to the same... More

Lido offers food that is traditional to Latvia and the Baltic states. There is a huge variety to choose from so it can be hard to pick quickly. The quality of the food is pretty good (though because it is a buffet style restaurant, it's not always super fresh/warm) and the prices are super cheap.

First; be aware that you may have to stand in a queue: This is very (or the most) popular restaurant in Riga. Only problem is, that because you collect the items; salad, drinks, sideorders.... one by one, so it takes time. But I may say, it's worth it. Selection is quite good and also a little bit variable every day.... More
