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.

After a disappointing previous evening in a (supposely) posh beach restaurant (see other review) dining at the Fish restaurant of the Dome hotel was a pleasant (re)-encounter with good Latvian cuisine.

The restaurant is tiny and a bit dark and could benefit from some more sophisticated decoration given its Relais & Chateau status but the service is very good and the staff very friendly.

We sought advise to get the best of local cuisine as starters and main courses. Overall we were not disappointed., both taste and presentation were of very good standard. A special mentioning for the deserts and the smoked eel.

Some details could be perfectioned in most dimensions though. In service a better presentation of dishes (basically served without any description) and attention to some details (check the bread basket, small miniardises at the end) could make it to top grading. In terms of cuisine i would suggest to be a bit more daring when it comes to local specialties in particular. Finally the bill, not cheap but not excessive either, €180 in three with a good wine and full menus.

We were staying at the hotel and looking at the menu and breakfast decided to have dinner as well.
. We preferred to eat in the street terrace and not on the roof terrace, which is more for grill.

All dishes were extremely good. The one I remember were the asparagus, the appetizers a Tuna tartare and a smoked fish the grilled turbot and the r vegetarian ravioli with truffles.

We had a reservation for two, when we arrived at the time (19:30) they did not found our reservation (but we had a e-mail confirmation), after 15 minutes of confusion they understood that they had mixed the dates and overbooked. We had to leave and didn´t had a dinner, totally ruined our night.

For such ahigh class restauant it claims to be, a butter knife on the bread dish would be appropriate, and while the clay tableware is stylish, it is impossuble tk abide by etiquette rules concerning sikverware with such dishes. Since this restaurant claims to be high class with correspndjng price dange, they should think about all those details. The food was very good, however, all 3 courses of it.
