This is a cafeteria type of restaurant that allows you to pick your meal. The meal was very good and the cost was excellent. We plan on returning for breakfast tomorrow.

Buffet style with lots and lots and lots of choices - at cheap prices considering how much food they give you. Apart from the slippery trays ... Latvian food is good and wholesome and the potatoes are so sweet and always cooked to perfection.

We went for lunch at Lidos. It was an excellent choise regarding the food. Lido has a large variaty of both food, drinks and desserts. It was all delicious! The only down side was the exceptionally rude staff. The system at Lido's is a bit tricky, before you get it. Instead of helping us out, two of the staff members... More

Pretty good option if you are on a budget. There are lots of choices and it's like one of those buffet style where you will pay only for the ones you selected. For me quality is hit or miss.

This was a great find for cheap, local food when I first arrived in Riga. Plenty of choice (although not all descriptions were in English), and incredibly good value. I intend on trying another similar place for lunch whilst in Riga. Ideal option for keeping to a travelling budget.

LIDO Ģertrūdes iela 54 Pleasant family dinner. A good choice of dishes for all tastes, which quickly disappear in the mouths of visitors. Dessert also liked, although to be honest, it was superfluous.

We usually order too much & cant finish it. Food is very tasty, traditional, as in a... More

We came to the famous Lido restaurant because we got the recommendation from several local people. Actually is where people from Riga usually go to eat so it was worth to try it. The food was ok -I mean, i payed 8€ for a dish full of food, and so my friend did-, but is very grassy, food is deep... More
