Lido is a great concept. The restaurant offers cheap Baltic-style food, but not with a cheap taste. The dishes are good quality and taste wonderful. Don't expect a long romantic dinner or lunch. The place is usually very busy and most visitors just grab a quick meal in between shopping or sightseeing. If you want to taste Latvian kitchen and... More

Went in for dinner, to this excellent self service restaurant. Be sure to keep hot food plates seperate from cold salad plates, as they charge by the plate! Load up a salad plate for very small fee!

A very nice cafe/bar located just in the heart of old Riga where you can try some local specialities and taste different kind of beers. Vegetarian friendly. The best tables are by the window!

This place is my favorite restaurant in the world. Self serve, just walk up with your plate and the friendly staff will give you what you want. A great way to sample many different dishes. The price is not cheap and you pay for each item you get but it is so worth it. Warm friendly atmosphere inside.

Lido is a buffet but it's not an all-you-can-eat. Having said that, the food is reasonably priced and very enticing, I wanted to try everything! Great variety of choice and great Latvian food. Would recommend.

Small self-service restaurant and vine/beer bar. Offers very good traditional Latvian food and it was really good for us to get some warmness and energy in November evening.

We stumbled across Alus Seta and came in through the rear entrance which doesn't really give much indication of what the place is (unlike the front and where we left by). Cafeteria food that you queue up for which might not sound too good but the food was of good quality and reasonable price. As some others have said if... 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.
