Description: The signature traits of KID* are freshness and lightness. Both in terms of the menu and the Nordic-style interior – clean and simple, yet elegant. Adherence to excellent service and affordable prices are values that we see as absolute requirements for the running of a good restaurant.At the heart of KID* restaurants is a light salad bar – an open buffet of seasonal, mostly locally-sourced produce and ingredients that never lack in variety. Our head chef has worked at Copenhagen's prestigious Noma – deemed the best restaurant in the world now for three years running, as can be clearly seen in our menu, where we've assembled the best dishes from diverse cuisine's throughout Europe.On weekdays, KID* restaurants are open from 08:00, and on Fridays and Saturdays, we close only when the last guest leaves. This explains why we're a favorite of early risers, people on business lunches, families with children and, of course, late-night diners.Open since 2008, KID* is the kind of restaurant that guidebooks tend to label as a “Great Find” – a place frequented by the locals, but where an out-of-town visitor can get a feel for the city's atmosphere and undercurrents. We help keep this vibe alive by lining the walls of our restaurants with the latest works done by local artists.

“Great place to chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

KID restaurant is a wonderful fusion of tasty food, great service and are really pleasant relaxing atmosphere. We have dined here a number of times and have found it to be consistently good. The outside decking area is beautiful as is the art they have displayed. It is a real gem for a meal or even just a coffee and dessert.

“Friendly, reasonable, good selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

To us New Yorkers, this felt like a great, funky Williamsburg (Bklyn) place: art hanging on the galleries, unfussy cooking that tasted good and home made, a hospitable welcome. Variety of vegetable selections, salads, and other choices that were extremely well priced. Wish we'd found more places like this in the Baltics!

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had a delicious meal at KID Bar & Restaurant on the corner of Gertrudes iela in Riga. We had duck breast and cat fish as our main dishes plus a cheese plate for "dessert". The portions are not big, but very tasty. The restaurant is trendy and the staff is nice and observant with a good knowledge of English.
We went back to this restaurant for our final meal in Riga...

“Great dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

After checking out Tripadvisor before going to Riga, we went to some of the top-5 restaurants. The last night we wanted to have dinner close to our hotel, and that's how we found KID. The food was really tasty and the prices were low (mains between 3,5-8 LVL). Service was nice and friendly and food was served really fast. Nice feature was the salad bar, but we didn't try it.

Recommanded!
