Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner
Latvian cuisine in the heart of Riga. Medieval atmosphere: Latvians considered classic mills to be a symbol of strength and life, so the bistro features a number of streams replicating the pleasant murmuring around a mill. Children's play area and rocking horses in one room. Located between Barona and Terbatas street.
US$3 - US$11

We walked around several Lidos till we found this one that had free tables; it’s much bigger than it looks from the outside. Food was really good, and reasonably priced with lots of choice. Contrary to other reviews I’ve read I thought the service was...More

Approx 1/3rd of choice and the food we chose was lukewarm at best. My rice and vegetable was extremely bland. Disappointing

A self-catering restaurant, where you can see the cooks preparing the dishes. Various food, looking delicious - of course, I wasn't able to taste all of them. We where there around 2 P.M. and there were some customers but not the crowd you would expect...More

I might have had a better experience here. This is cafeteria/canteen style where you approach various food counters with a tray and choose what you like, then pay at the end before sitting down to eat. At first glance there were a lot of options...More

This is a self service restaurant with a huge collection of dishes all taste like home cooking. Above all, the price is very modest. Excellent value for price. To us, the ability to see the selection before choosing a dish is very appealing. The food...More

We were 4 adults and 4 children. The selection of food is typical for Lido - Latvian cuisine. Fresh, clean, friendly. Not fine cuisine, just a good place to have a dinner in the middle of the day. Highly recommended!
