Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

3.5/10 Food 3/10 underwhelming, not very tasty. Service 5/10 friendly server, didn’t interact with anyone, not showed to table or welcomed. Location, easy to find, nice enough interior. Value 4/10 not that cheap all things considered, self service, mediocre food. Don’t understand the hype for...this place. Some locals there, maybe a matter of taste but seemed bland and not as cheap as first thought. €30 for two people with dessert.More

Great value. Lots of options (hot and cold, for meat-eaters and non-carnivores, alike). Beer on draught. Convenient. Casual. Family-friendly (there are high-chairs). Very reasonable prices for quality and quantity of food.

I've been here for the first time, because it was recommended to me. Very good, tasty food for a great price. Chef, who was serving food was very polite and he explained everything to me, even he was speaking a little bit of polish. Soup...was very familiar to Ukrainian's solyanka. Beer was fantastic!!!More

Went to the Lido with my 7 yo daughter as I was keen to try some traditional Latvian food but she wasn’t as keen, so seemed a good way to compromise. The choice of food was good, and h the chef was helpful in guiding...us through the food - I asked him to give me what he considered the most typical Latvian meal, and was served up Saurekraut with a braised beef in a creamy white wine and raisin sauce - I also grabbed separately a pancake filled with mince meat - my daughter had a seasoned chicken fillet with some herby potatoes All the food was great, I really liked what the chef had chosen for me - with a couple of drinks our total was about €14 We went back for a helping of pudding, and I chose what looked similar to kremsnita that I had tried in Slovenia, but actually when I ate it was not that similar - on translation of the receipt it turned out to be Eggnog cake - I would definitely recommend it - certainly at less than €2 for a decent sized wedge! As an extra bit of experience the decor is pretty quirky and cool My first Latvian Lido experience - and I would definitely go back here if I’m in Riga again!More

We always visit this Lido when eating out. Much cosier and a friendlier atmosphere than the other busy central restaurants. Yuris the chef always makes it special and ensures his guests get what they want and are happy. Super place.

I was recommended to come here for modern versions of traditional Latvian food. It’s a self serve cafeteria with surprising quality. The place was filled with locals which is always a good sign. I got a salad made from beet root, some roasted vegetables and...some chicken and potatoes in a mushroom sauce. I really liked it and felt like I was getting a real Latvian experience.More

All guides stated that Lido is a place to tick on the list when visiting Riga, hence we have attended. It is a bit odd self service place where is took us a moment to figure out how this whole concept works. Some of the...items you on a tray yourself and some are handed by the chefs. Food is decent and if you know what you fancy you can get a cheap and tasty meal but we went a bit overboard as we wanted to try many things. One tip from me though - the draught beer taps are not really beers but local low alcohol concoctions. A bit odd tasting but local vibe was achievedMore

The branch of Lido on Dzirnavu iela is larger than some of the others with two main rooms leading from the street and a half timbered one are the back. As with other branches it operates as a self-service cafeteria style. My choice here was...a ‘pikant’ kefir (with mint and dill), a selection of side salads sold by the kilogram, and what turned out to sweet and sour chicken breast – in the rather dim light I had thought the tiny cubes of pineapple were pumpkin or swede, a marrow fritter and a small maize roll, all for €7,20, representing excellent value for someone hungry after a hard day’s sightseeing the many art nouveau buildings in this part of Riga.More
