Dottir restaurant was founded and is operated by Robert Fritzen, who has had business and personal ties to Iceland since 1991, when he assisted in the opening and running of the first Icelandic restaurant in Prague – Reykjavik in Karlova Street. Since then he has helped its Icelandic owners to develop businesses in the Czech Republic across various sectors for almost 25 years.

The Reykjavik restaurant was sold in 2011 and since then Robert has been captivated with the idea of opening a restaurant of his own. His aim is to offer a different type of foreign cuisine to those that people in Prague are accustomed to, with meals made from fresh, top-quality ingredients.

As Robert himself says: “everything here comes from the heart.” And that’s why, since April 2018, you have been able to taste right here in Vinohrady the traditional Scandinavian dishes and drinks that Robert learnt from his Icelandic friends. Such are the origins of our refreshing cinnamon water, homemade recipes and our specialty: the creamy Icelandic fish soup.



We are particularly careful when choosing our suppliers. It is vital for us to work only with fresh ingredients that come from from suppliers whom we can trust.

Along with fish and a chat with friends, one can never have too much wine. Since there are no vineyards in Iceland yet, we are pleased to offer a selection of wines from Czech and Italian cellars. You can find our wine offers on the drinks menu and our staff will be happy to assist you.
