7.  Anna’s Dārzs

A cozy courtyard, fenced off by trees from a noisy road, along with lights and wicker chairs, takes you to a stylish dacha in the village from Chekhov’s stories. The food is also very tasty.

8. Terra

Place for lunch. It is very tasty here, especially delicious meat and puree. The portion is placed in a proportioned box. Free water from a decanter. Be sure to try the homemade snickers.

10. Chat

Restaurant-dining room on the top floor of Stockman. Suitable for both eating and working with a notebook, and for an inexpensive lunch. You just have to avoid rush hour when all tables are busy and too noisy.

11. Wok to walk

If you are in old Riga and want a tasty and satisfying meal (but not in Lido), then WOK is a great option. Large portions and really delicious. You can take one wok for two.

12. Arbooz

It is strictly forbidden for those on a diet. Macaroni, cupcakes and eclairs are not just desserts here, they will become the protagonists of your sweet romance. On the website there is even a schedule for when which dessert will be prepared.

13. Valtera

Feel the atmosphere of a hospitable Latvian village. The interior resembles a country estate. Only seasonal products are on the menu, and only from Latvian farms. If you want a real national authentic cuisine – you are here.

14. Melnais Kiploks

My favorite restaurant in the center of Riga. It is good even at rush hour. All tables are very private. The food is delicious. The staff is helpful.

15. Terrace D’Arte

One of the best views of the city. Especially recommended during summer when an open-air terrace is functioning. In the restaurant is a very good lunch menu. You can eat very good plates for 4-5 euros including a drink.

Adress: Dzirnavu iela 67.

Bon Appetit.
