we came here for lunch and enjoyed the concept of choosing an item yourself and paying per item at the end. Choice was lacking in desserts for me but overall a great idea and would come back again

Our tour guide recommended that we check out Lido during our trip to the Baltic states. It was good advice! If you'd like a self-service restaurant with a huge range of inexpensive local food, give it a go.

Food is overpriced, cold, and mediocre in flavour. Vegetables were over cooked. Fried dishes tasted only of cooking oil. Beer selection was lousy. The staff were unfriendly. You have to bus your table yourself. The restaurant decor and outfits are kitsch.

Visited a Lido in Riga, so was happy to visit here too. Wide range of choices for meat eaters, but limited for vegetarians, though there are a few dishes available. Very cheap- 6€ for cauliflower cheese and tomato dish, with chips and cucumber salad.

Visited here with family twice during our stay in Tallinn. Typical, good food. Unfortunately the variety of food available was not very wide when we visited in the evening. Inexpensive restaurant, very popular with locals

Premium buffet and better price, next to the old town, and where the decoration and quality give you a perfect meal

The Lido buffet-style restaurant with its novel and distinctive concept is a dining establishment that offers an unusually wide range of food and can serve up to 300 customers at a time. The cosy and spacious self-service restaurant offers approx. 200 different selections each day at very affordable prices. On weekdays, a solid lunch runs well under 100 kroons – good news for office workers in the city centre. Besides entrées, soups and salads, Solaris also has an express restaurant serving fresh grilled food.
