Very small Riga airport compare with other European airport. We travel from Berlin three days ago to Riga, surprisingly there is no passport control at all. This morning we enter the departure gate there is no passport control either. I suppose passport are required before boarding. Quite a few duty free shops around and coffee bar and restaurant. Clean and... More

Riga airport has this very good buffet restaurant. The Latvians seem to have a very good and healthy diet reflected in the offering here. Better than eating on the plane. Food is fresh and good to eat. Use up your Euros here before coming back to UK.

This is a place which sells food. That's it. It is not a place which seems to care about food nor serving it well. Not cheap either. Good when you are hungry and there is no other option.

The Buffet caffe in Riga Airport was ok, but I strongly recommend it only for people who are in hurry, because that is one of the most expensive places in that airport. Food and drinks are ok, but nothing more.

Slow service which I can see there it's normal for rush hours it could be better but it's good enough to have a snack or some food before your flight

This place is a disaster. Last time I used it, I opted for Valmiermuiža beer (bottled), but is was warm. Also, some people grow roots there, they sit at empty tables (perhaps have had one coffee many hours ago), sleep even, those who would like to eat or drink something have no place (I saw a young family with children...

Forced to travel to Riga when my Copenhagen - Berlin flight was cancelled, hunger and thirst made me buy a baguette and a cup of self-serve 'coffee' from this establishment. Inedible and alarmingly had a use-by date of 14 days hence ! Obviously travellers like me have little choice, but be warned.

I had a salmon baguette for 5 euros which was horrible - old, dry, almost nothing inside only onion. And moreover, staff is very rude! Avoid spending your precious money here.

I was forced to eat here twice due to late-night transfers. The service is poor, the food is terrible, and everything is overpriced. +++ Buy a beer and people-watch (but costs €7 if I remember correctly) --- Everything else! Conclusion: Eat here only if you are desperate, as it's probably only a little better than food on AirBaltic.
