Description: The sophisticated restaurant Le Dome is truly a jewel of the Latvian cuisine. Chef Sergey Siporov continuously achieves new levels in culinary art by discovering the finest nuances of the local seafood and products from Latvian farmland. He creates refined combinations of taste, applying contemporary European culinary techniques.Le Dome menu reveals the plentiful world of fish recipes. We are sure that you will embrace the taste of plaice, sturgeon, cod, Baltic pilchard, sander and other fish from Latvian lakes and the Baltic Sea, prepared in variety of ways. Nevertheless chef Sergey Siporov is eager to reinvent the tastefulness of other seasonal products - wild game, vegetables and berries, specially prepared sauces, and he takes no compromises on the way of creating ever new courses and constantly renews the menu. The light design and pleasant atmosphere is suitable for both a successful business lunch conversation and romantic dinner. During the day the restaurant is embraced by a businesslike atmosphere, in evenings by leisurely conversations and romance, while in weekends these are gourmands that enjoy the gastronomic pleasure and appreciate real values, a qualitative and savory meal, selected wine and outstanding service. In weekend evenings one can enjoy live piano performances and such an evening is really worth to enjoy taking one's time.

I wandered in here when I got tired of looking for another restaurant, and had such a lovely meal. The restaurant ambiance is quite nice without being stuffy. The bread was wonderful, as it is all over Riga, and I had a delicious fish dish...sorry, I don't remember what kind of fish it was.
Service was excellentm and the atmosphere was nice and quiet. I definitely recommend Le Dome as a wonderful getaway from the tourist restaurants.

Located in the very heart of Riga, homely and romantic, attentive and nice service, tasty fish, tasty dessert. Quite expensive, but makes you feel that you are in an expensive place for a special event.

Dear Anna K,

We would like to express our appreciation for sharing your experience with others on Tripadvisor!

We truly value all reviews from locals, because as we know Latvians are not expressing their emotions quite often and are reticent. But for us it is very important as nowadays tourists prefer visit non-touristic places more and more.

Thank you again and we are looking forward to welcoming you back soon!

Yours sincerely,
Julia

This small but stylish restaurant is close to the Dome Cathedral. We were a bit hesitant when we saw only 2 customers inside the restaurant when we arrived. Still we decided to give it a try and we must say that we enjoyed our dining experience. The waitress is attentive and very efficient. She made some excellent recommendations. The restaurant gave us a complimentary starter. Food was excellent. To round off the dining experience, the waitress recommended the homemade ice cream. We chose these 3 flavours - black balsam, basil and rhubarb. These are very Latvian flavours and we utterly enjoyed the ice cream!

Dear, Exceeding_Joy,

Thank you for taking time to review our restaurant. We do really appreciate that you have pointed out the good service in your comment what is one of the most important criteria of good restaurant.

Our restaurant chef Maris Astics emphasizes local product taste in his seasonal menu what makes it not only interesting, but also full of gastronomical surprises what you have also experienced (like homemade ice cream with different tastes for example).

We value every opinion and thank you again for visiting us and sharing your experience with others.

Hope seeing you back some day!

Warmest regards,
Julia

Hello!
I would like to thank the team at Le Dome, which organized a fantastic dinner, a perfect meal with wine and atmosphere. Many thanks to the chef and assistants that made this a wonderful evening. Special thanks to the young man, who talked about the wines and offered service to all of us this evening. The big surprise was the rhubarb wine which I had never before tasted. Perfect evening, thank you.
Dinner was held in Miele gallery.

We ate here by staying at the Dome Hotel. The breakfasts were substantial. There was a buffet with hard cooked eggs, curd, fruit, bread, salads and all sorts of wonderful fish. Hot breakfasts include the delicious smoked salmon, roe and blini and omelets. Service is professional, prompt and friendly (with the exception of one sour young man who doesn't seem to enjoy his job). Two issues. First, the chef overcooks his omelets and puts very little of the cheese, tomato and mushrooms in them and in this place with first rate food this is a big outage. Second, we stayed four nights and had breakfast four mornings. The first we asked for nonfat milk in the latte. They had 2% milk. The second morning we expected they would have nonfat milk but had neither nonfat nor 2% milk. Isn't the staff supposed to take note of guests' preferences? Every morning thereafter we asked for reduced fat milk and were told there was none.
