After the renovation the restaurant has been completely revamped, now offering a much more sophisticated setting for an unhurried breakfast, business lunch, or a relaxed candlelit atmosphere for dinner. The international menu isn’t wide or adventurous, but what they do have is prepared perfectly, combining contrasting ingredients and ideas to produce creative dishes. I tried the broth soup with home-made herbed goat-cheese ravioli and tiger prawns (3.00 €). But the poached pikeperch was nicely teamed with crispy asparagus and roasted vegetables inside a puff pastry, gently complemented by a sweet coconut sauce (6.90 €). It was surprising to see how the owners of the restaurant managed to transform this tiny space, with just nine tables, from a dining room into a club with DJs on Friday and Saturday nights. After all, Domini Canes breathes fresh breath into Riga’s dining scene, creating a nice alternative to the rather expensive Old Riga dining venues.
