Eating Out in Riga

Riga is replete with places to eat- places where you’ll find every cuisine from French to Chinese, complete with starched napkins and silver service. The unfortunate thing, though, is that most restaurants are relatively expensive, and you’ll end up paying more than is actually necessary. A better idea is to head for less sleek eateries- usually small cafés and fast food joints- where you’ll be able to get good food (often just as good as you would get in one of the more posh establishments), at low rates. Snack bars and fast food outlets are particularly good if money is a constraint. Riga has its fair share of bars, pubs and taverns; the cheapest are the ones in the New Town area- they’re the ones that cater to the local crowd. The pubs in the Old Town (the tourist centre of the city) are, as a rule, more expensive.

Visitors can visit the National Opera House, the Philharmonic Hall or spend their time visiting the Ethnographic open-air museum in the open air. Every year many cultural activities take place in Riga: some of the examples include the Days of Art, the assembly of Vanguard Fashion, the 'Arsenals' film festival, the Nation Folk Song and Dance Festival. Besides, the 277 amateur art groups in the city, Riga also boasts of 7 professional theatres, 12 cinemas and 4 concert halls. Riga offers plenty of entertainment for all ages and all tastes.
