I usually eat at Vermanitis, and found this place to be a roomier, cozier, place for a conversation with a friend. Same great food! Loved the rocking horses by the Christmas trees still in January.

The only fault I could maybe find was that there is simply too much choice, especially if you're visiting for the first time. Some foods weren't 100% to my liking but this would be my personal preference. The food isn't haute cuisine but it is warm, hearty, and an excellent value for your money. I'm also told it's genuine Latvian... More

Visited Lido based on locals advice and wasn't disappointed. So much to choose from me and my girlfriend tried lots of different things and enjoyed them all. All for less then €15 total with a bottle of beer each. Brilliant!

Having been on trip advisor we decided to go to one of the many local lido restaurants. From the outside it looked nice and the self service style was a nice experience. Unfortunately all of our dishes were luke warm at best and they seemed to have all been made some time beforehand. The beers on tap were cheap but... More

It is a great place to try Latvian cuisine.The food is very tasty and qualitative but be aware if you come during business lunch hours some of the food can be not so warm. Comparing to other places with Latvian cuisine it has great price/value factor. Incredible Interior decoration, friendly staff, tasty food and nice drinks. Even the food variety... More

A friend and I had dinner here one evening after some sight seeing. You walk in grab a tray and pick up what you wish to eat. We chose mixed salads, grilled pork and roasted potatoes. All very tasty along with a Latvian beer. Finished the meal with a brown bread dessert. I tried it for the first time and... More

We felt somewhat guilty eating here as it seems to be a massive chain, and the other reviews reported lots of fried, luke warm food - but we felt we should visit this institution as part of our Latvian experience having passed about three of them during our wanderings around town and seeing them all busy. Well, we were not... More

I never have been disappointed in Lido. This time we had pancakes with cheese, was very tasty. The coffee was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was clean and cosy.

The food was very good. You pick what you wanted but you beed to be careful what you pick because each thing you pick has a cost. Even ketchup or salad dressing, you needed to pay. But this place was the BEST restaurant that we ate in Riga. It is very traditional with traditional food. The problem was that we... More

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.
