Buffet, local cuisine, choice of meat and desserts, Latvian beer available. Not so expensive. Good also for families with children. In the middle of the old town.

Our food was not as hot as we'd like but the food was OK and you pay per item whatever portion size you take, so this is good for large appetites. It is all self-service so the pace of the meal is up to you. There was a guy sitting alone at a table who looked like he could do... More

My son, soon to be daughter in law and I landed in Riga at about noon. We had arranged for Limo driver through our AirBnB contact. On the way to our apartment in old town he was telling us about things to do and places to eat. One place he highly recommended was Lidos. Viktor (our driver) said it is... More

Having retreated from the child-dominated place on the outskirts of town, I had dinner here. I'm still not sure I get the appeal of this self service restaurant model but I do get that it's good value with decent portion sizes. I'd have liked to have looked at the choices with a bit more time but as you're in a... More

Decor and music very nice and probably authentic. The sort of thing one might be looking for when visiting the Baltic states. The policy on ordering food and drink is dodgy at best but the food is really rather nice. Typical to Latvian customer service, this place is not exactly bad, but awkward. Cheap and tastes home cooked. Go try... More

We nearly didnt go in because there was no menu on the outside but that gave me reason to hope it was a little more local. Upon entering we found it to be a true local restaurant. Its good local cuisine, its a buffet style restaurant giving you plenty of choice and cheap. For about 10euros I managed to have... More

We called in here for lunch on the recommendation of our tour guide. It is a self-service style restaurant, with plenty of choices and at a great price. Opposite the food their is a bar with a selection of drinks (nice beers!) My meal and drink came to under 10 euros I would recommend and certainly pop in here again... More

The only LIDO in Riga's Old Town, Vecriga. Special beer lovers' menu and snacks. A wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks, including special LIDO beers. In summer, enjoyed delicious meals, drinks and the Old Town atmosphere on the outdoor terrace.
