For two decades, corny, kitschy Latvian theme chain Lido has tried to be all things to all people, and succeeded magnificently.
Mosey into the faux rustic interiors complete with folk maiden waitresses and canned country music for bumper helpings of meat, fish, pancakes, potatoes, creamy desserts - and a salad bar just in case.
There are several locations in central Riga and the airport, but for the full treatment, head to the enormous Lido Recreation Centre in the eastern suburbs. This mecca of bistros, rides and live country music will satisfy the most demanding offspring. The eatery in the basement has a selection of delicacies from Latvia's four regions.
