“Great Latvia food, quick and great value”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Our Latvian friend took us to this local favourite and we loved it so much we went back on two more occasions. There is so much food on offer, we never ate the same thing twice. It's also a good choice for vegetarians as the salads and hot veggie dishes were really tasty! My favourite dishes were the chicken & rice, pumpkin seed salad, garlic bread (made with the local brown bread), cheese pancakes and bread soup (dessert). There is also another smaller location in the Old Town which serves the same dishes.

“Delicious local food for little money”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This restaurant provides a self-service buffet with far too many options to try in a single visit. Drinks, starters, soups, salads, sauces, mains, deserts, pancakes, ... everything is there (only not very much choice for vegetarians). Mostly fresh prepared in front of your eyes. Everything I tasted was really delicious and the portions are generous (to use an understatement). And that for very little money.
No wonder that a lot of local people eat here too (I was tipped by a local).

Very nice! I had some eating times there. Nice atmosphere and good menu. Prices is quit democratic, but always wish to be less. Drinks and foods are very delishious, fresh and nice. Personal is kind, no dislikes. Located in good place in Riga. Many Latvian national food, fish dishes on menu., deserrts are very nice and delicious.

“stunning value and quality for the price”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Our tour guide told us about this place and having tried it we went back. We are now in Tallinn and we have found one in the Solaris Centre and we are going there tomorrow.

Self service tasty food from a three course meal to a bowl of soup. No hassle. Portion sizes are enormous and for veg are clearly meant to be shared. There doesn't appear to be any wine but kvaas and beer are available on aserve yourself basis.

“Nice food nice prices”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Nice part of Lido chain in Riga, quite close to the old town, but bigger then the Old Town Lido restaurant. Very nice latvian food for reasonable prices, self service.
Staff is dressed in Latvian dresses, mostly they are kind, but still can improve :-).
