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 Sergei Siporov, who was trained in Michelin-starred restaurants outside of Latvia. 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.

Being a Relais Chateau property, we had certain expectations. We were not disappointed. The dining room is intimate, but nicely lit so you don't have to use your phone to read the menu. Service was first rate - knowledgeable without being condescending. But, the best part was the delicious preparation of all the fish/seafood we had. We started with a few tapas to wet our appetites - Pickled Herring, Charcoal potatoes w/ caviar, and Crispy Baltic Herring. Then moved onto Appetizers - the Foie Gras Brulee was sensational (I would fly back to Riga - just to eat this!). Main courses included soft shell crab and the Alder Smoked Sturgeon (which comes to the table presented under a glass dome of smoke). We were full, but the desserts sounded too good and given how much we had already enjoyed the meal, we didn't want to miss tasting the dessert options. The Sea-Buckthorn Cream was a new taste for us and we loved it - a cross between citrus and passion fruit. Overall, excellent value for the money and such an enjoyable evening. Don't miss this when in Riga!

Coming from London, I’d consider myself rather spoilt when it comes to high-end dining. But our dinner at Le Dome left absolutely nothing to be desired. High quality ingredients treated with respect and left to speak for themselves, a season menu with a great wine selection to match. The complimentary bread was to die for! The head chef worked at Le Manoir under Raymond Blanc and you can tell immediately by the style of the food and the flawless execution. Worth coming to Riga for!

Had a great family lunch. Very intimate place with limited number of seatings so booking in advance is highly recommended. Food was excellent. Very good seafood/fish selection though we also tried the deer and it was one of the most tender we ever had. Very nice creativity / details of presentation overall. Desserts were also very tasty. Wide wine selection with decently price offering. Will definitely come back.

We were restaurant hopping and had our main course at Le Dome. The risotto was exceptional. The sturgeon was expertly cooked and smoked.

It was strange that we had to fetch our own coats from the wardrobe by the entrance and then opened the door ourselves with no staff to see us out. Yes they were laying table cloths but how could his happen in such a high class restaurant?

We spent two weeks outside Riga around New Year holidays and drove to the city almost every days to walk around, shop and have lunch. Le Dome had high ratings and good reviews and we tried it for lunch. Very hospitable place, quick service and very skillful preparation of fish dishes, which is a specialty of the region. Most fish in the restaurant was from the Baltic Sea and incredibly fresh. We will definitely be back.
