The biggest Lido is on Krasta Iela (Street). It is located at number 76. You may find the most variant of meal here. This Lido has activity garden and delicatessen also. You may buy bacon or some other stuff and take them to your home.

Tastes worth to try

I lose myself everytime i get in Lido. They have several types of potatoes. My favorite ones are the round ones which are on the photo. I add mushroom sauce on them most of the time. There are some other sauces also. You may try depending on your taste.


They have 2-3 types of rice meals. Mostly with vegetables or meat. I like their bbq meals also. There are pork, chicken, fish options too.

You may try fresh fruit juices as drink. They have fruit juice coctails which tastes really good. But there is also beer option which you can try Latvian beers.


Sweet end


If you are a type of person who can not finish their meals without desserts then Lido is right place for you. They have different type of desserts which i guess you haven’t experienced before. One of their traditional dessert is the one which they make with rye bread. It must be the one which is on the right at the photo. It is a bit different dessert. Everyone may not like it but worth to try!
