They offer a delicious selection of food, including fish, meats, veggies, rice, potatoes, and a fool salad bar. You can pick your own tray, go around the various counters to be served the food of your choice. You can get your own beer and wine....Pay the cashier at the end of the carousel and then get a seat. There are tables outside, inside, and upstairs. Very cozy and enjoyable. They offer free Wi-Fi. Here you can also toast the delicious Riga Balsam.More

Great and affordable food. They have a good variety of food to choose from. Among them is Pelēkie zirņi ar speķi, the national dish of Latvia.

Huge servings and basically the food is prepared and you chose what you want on your plate. I found the staff to be friendly and the food was very tasty. A great way to try local food.

Great food for a good price in a nice contest in Riga’s downtown! Highly worthy! The food is typical and it’s like home made…as eating at Mamy’s house 😋

Good food at a reasonable price. Better than other more expensive places. Also a good place to drink a draft beer or cider.

Recommended by our walking tour guide and now recommended by us! Good quality freshly cooked Latvian dishes and served buffet style. Everything is individually priced so you only choose and pay for what you want. Lots of freshly cooked meat and fish dishes, salads, rice,...veg, noodles etc and good selection of deserts and local alcoholic/soft drinks. The beetroot soup is delicious and worth trying. Highly recommend.More

Local food in buffet style. You choose what dishes you want, different meat with your choice of potatoes or rice, vegetables and sauce. They also have very delicious desserts. Very affordable, fast delivery, kid friendly, plenty of sitting areas.

Great local food at an affordable price. There are several lido restaurants across Riga, but we visited this one multiple times during our stay. Buffet style, local food.

This is a cafeteria style restaurant where you pick out the food you want to order, pay for it, and then sit at one of the many available tables, that are either upstairs or downstairs. You have the options of trying local foods, salads, desserts,...various beverages, etc. While I was here for lunch, the same food is available for dinner. You can basically get your protein and two sides here. I had several meals here and went for salmon one day, and grilled chicken the next. The food was tasty and the portion were right sized.More

We weren’t sure where to eat but this place was busy which we took as a good sign. Turned out it was good food, fairly priced, served in a canteen style and the desserts were great!

I cannot add much more to the answers that you have received already. With the exception of the 'hot' dishes (which are served for you) you help yourself and each item is individually priced. If you were to choose tomatoes... More
