Weather on October, beer and food prices.......

Hi, we're thinking of taking a few days in Riga in October this year, but would really welcome advice on what to do, where we can find good food (Indian perhaps?) and cheap beer. We're a middle aged couple so don't want the stag do approach.

Also what's the weather like at that time of year??

Any suggestions would be very welcome!!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, there is plenty of suggestions and advices in this forum.

Indian food? I think you have more and better Indian restaurants in UK.

There is Indian Raja in Skarnu iela and Spicy Affair in Antonijas iela,

but I have not tried them. Last time Indian was in Birmingham.

Try the Lido restaurants or il Patio for cheap but good food.

Or Armenia in Dzirnavu iela or Navat Club in Elizabetes iela for

more spicy and tasty food at fair prices.

Cheap beers everywhere, but both food and beer is more

expensive in Old Town than outside.

Weather can be sunny, but more likely rain and wind. I have

few photos from October 2011 here:

Many thanks - will certainly do some more research before we book, but Riga looks like it fits with our wishes.

Thanks again.

"Cheap beers everywhere, but both food and beer is more expensive in Old Town than outside."

Please tell me where I can find local beer.

What are the local microbreweries - or is all beer from global beer factories?

Thanks,

@tankard

It is more clever if you open your own thread!

You can find Latvian beers everywhere in Riga, all

pubs have a selection of them.

As you state in other post you want to try not so

turist places..you can try Folkklubs

http://www.folkklubs.lv/en

but as said you find Latvian beers in every pub,

and there is many different beers.

I only know one place with microbrewery, the Lido Atputas:

Answering the original post question on the weather - October is an autumn month, so be prepared for a rain, you would be lucky if you get sunshine. But there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing :)

If it rains, spend more time indoors. e.g. you can visit our Latvian traditional cooking class www.cookinglatvia.com
