Vērmanītis is Latvian cuisine restaurant located in the very center on the crossroads of Elizabetes and Terbatas. It is used be cheap as any other Lido Restaurant, but nowadays Vermanitis has prices like any place in city center.
Tokyo City is one of the best Sushi bars in Riga. It is open since Summer 2010 and still has attractive low prices. Restaurant is located in the very center, on Krisjana Barona street, in place where Palazzo Italia shop used to be. (Un)fortunately Tokyo city is also smokers-friendly place.
AmPir (Empire style) is the name of the recently opened place on Kalku iela 22. One year before an infamous and expensive Restaurant Nostalgija was located here. Unfortunately I can't tell more about this place for now. Maybe some of the visitors can? Thanks.
Čilija Pica (Chili Pizza) is the largest pizza chain in Latvia, although it is originally Lithuanian company. It is famous for relatively low prices and good quality of food. Some of Čili pizzerias are open day and night and serving alcohol, hence Čilik could be considered as part of Riga nightlife or even morning life when everybody comes here after parties to have some pizza :)
Iguana is the name of a restaurant located on Elizabetes iela, within Berga Bazars complex. The food here looks (and tastes of course) much more pleasant than the animal with the same name :) Thanks goes to Mike for showing me the place :)
Oliveoil is the name of Italian restaurant located in Old town on Jana iela. There are so many Italians and Italian places in Riga, so it could be possible that Italian could be the 3rd most popular native language of people living in Riga after Latvian and Russian of course. BTW, Halloween is coming this weekend :)
Double Coffee is a Latvian version of Starbucks. Interesting that in every country (except China) where Double Coffee has own cafe shops, Starbucks does not. First ever Double Coffee was opened in 2002 at Stabu street, nowadays it has more than cafes 20 in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and China.
Le Paon Bleu (Indian Peafowl) is the name of recently opened bohemian French restaurant in Old Town. I don't know what new restaurant owners have in mind, but the closed down restaurant Hospitalis, which was located here, went bankruptcy several months ago. Despite being very well promoted Hospitalis couldn't compete with cheaper restaurants and cafes in Old Town. Have you ever tried frogs legs? How does it taste like? :)
Hotel Bergi is closed down since 2008, but it looks like it is still open. From a distance of course. At some point Berģi was a popular destination for couples with a passionate desires. Despite its cheapness and remoteness here was a good restaurant with panoramic view. It is located just next to Sigulda Highway, hence it could easily take the title of the first Riga Motel.
T.G.I. Friday's is always called just Fridays, but most of the local people don't even know that it stands for Thank God It's Friday's, just because they simply don't go to this American restaurant. Everyday regular visitors of Fridays are Riga tourists, who pretend that they don't like McDonald's and don't know about Hesburger, which is located 1 minute walking from here.
Lidojošā varde (Flying Frog) is a nice cafe in a quiet center on the crossroads of Elizabetes and Antonijas. It is famous because of picturesque location next to Albert street and other architecture examples of Art Nouveau. Despite a little bit high prices on food, the bar is still affordable for almost everybody.
In the summer Riga looks like any other Western European city. A lot of local people go out, happy tourists are visiting town, brasserie are open in the center :) This Summer Terrace is next to one of the many Steiku Haoss restaurants in Riga.
