The very large restaurant is also noisy in the morning, when it is at its busiest (between 8am and 9am). Sensitive ears should sit near the entrance (but further from the buffet), or on the lower level (if there is room), along the bay windows that overlook the street. Bench seats covered in striped fabric, laminated tables and brightly coloured vase columns: the attractive and modern decor is all the more noticeable at lunchtime or in the evening, when the crowds of guests are less heavy. In the summer tables are set outside for smokers, who take their cups and sometimes even their plates outside of a morning. Breakfast includes smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, kidney beans, fresh fruit, bread rolls and miniature croissants, if you visit all corners of the buffet, whilst waiting to see the dishes available, since as soon as a group arrives to eat, chaos quickly ensues. A buffet is also provided in the evening, with seasonal (chanterelle salad), local (marinated herring) and international (chicken blanquette, grilled fish, Pommes Noisettes) specialities. The sushi bar at the Casino serves food 24 hours a day and can be accessed from inside the hotel.
There is also no need to leave the hotel for your evening entertainment: the lounge bar on the 26th floor offers panoramic views and a chic ambience and attracts a local clientele of working thirty-somethings. This is certainly one of the recommended night-time haunts of Riga.
