Description: Our cosy yet chic Dome Fish Restaurant has established its reputation with delicious fish cuisine. The fish we serve here is delivered mostly by small local fisheries and even fishermen themselves. Thus, once a week there's a special delivery from Pāvilosta – a small fishing town on the western coast some 200 km from Riga. In addition to the fish dishes, the menu at Dome offers a selection of fine meat and vegetable dishes that are lovingly and imaginatively prepared by our chef Kristaps Silis who was trained at the world’s most famous restaurant “NOMA” in Copenhagen, as well as with the Tom Aikens restaurant in London. One of the secrets to a delicious and healthy meal is the fact that most of the ingredients have been harvested locally, which guarantees their freshness. In the warmer months of the year - April to October - we offer seating on our rooftop terrace where exciting dishes are prepared by our chefs right before your eyes on the special GreenEgg grill.

..And if you like a mild and sterile atmosphere. I'm pretty sure my waitress was also not a fan at all of foreigners but the service was still textbook on point. The food though. I'll head back any time I'm in Riga for more of their amazing food over a number of the more well known restaurants. Standouts were the tuna tartar cones shown in a number of the photos and a pumpkin soup.

Dear Stephanie P,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience about your visit to our restaurant on Tripadvisor. It is very important for us to know, how do guests feel about the service and food they had.

We are glad that we were able to meet your expectations and the best compliment for our chef is to read that people come back and say that the food was and is amazing. This is what he works for!

Come back soon!
Best regards,
Julia

Really perfect place to celebrate some event. As a bit expensive, but quite high level internally, food quality and taste variety offered.
Rather cosy place no need to rush.

Liked very much!

Unfortunately we cannot judge the quality of the food. We made a reservation for the Rīga Foodweek and they gladly took the reservation. They even confirmed via email that the first dish could be served in a vegetarian way. They seated us at a nice table and offered the normal menue. After asking for the foodweek special the waitress just answered they offer it only during daytime in an unfriedly way. We then mentioned the email and there was neither an apology nor flexibility. We then decided to leave. In a high class restaurant you expect a better customer service with more friendly, better trained staff that has the openness to find a solution.
Overall a very disappointing experience!

Dear catarininha86,

I am writing a reply only now, as we were making a proper investigation, in order to understand, who was the responsible person for the situation happened and to make necessary steps in order to avoid situation like yours happen again.

Please also allow me this opportunity to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your visit. You willingness to share your thoughts is appreciated.
Our restaurant is committed to providing our guests with the highest quality services. We sincerely regret we fell short of our goal in this instance. Two staff members did not communicate on time, what caused this failure from our side.

Your comments are important to the success of our organization, as we rely on you, our guest, to tell us how we are doing and how we can better meet your needs.

I do really hope that you'll give our restaurant another chance and will try our food next time you are in Riga.

Best regards,
Julia

Even though the people attending the restaurant are very serious, the food is marvelous. The specialty is fish from Latvia, we had eel, it was my first time, although I can tell you probably will never eat it again the flavor was very good. The attention, the wine, everything is very nice. It's located in the first floor of a hotel in downtown Riga. For those who want to try new type of fish that mainly is from Latvia you should come here. Restaurant is quiet, little amount of tables (probably less than 10).
