Came here with a local friend and had some local food - absolutely fantastic, although a bit above average price well worth it! The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is great. Will be back next time in Riga for sure.

The tasting menu is spendy, but worth it, particularly as I knew very little about the local cuisine but was very curious. The "Ready to order" and "bring the bill" buttons on the tables were a nice touch- particularly as I knew very little Latvian...More

Costs a bit more than other restaurants in the area, but in return, you get great service and even greater food. We ordered soup for entrees and fish for main course and didn't regret either one.

"Salve" - a restaurant that represents Riga city cuisine There's no better way to express the uniqueness of the people, its habits and tastes than through national cuisine. Restaurant Salve offers a taste of traditional Latvian cuisine in an elegant city manner. Restaurant Salve, which is located in the historic Blue Guard House which is part of the complex of the House of Blackheads on the Town Hall Square - the heart of Old Riga - is the right place to look for exquisite cuisine and enjoy the specialties of the capital. We offer to appraise the elegant and at the same time cozy atmosphere of the restaurant with a fine Dutch style interior to all citizens of Riga and its guests. Internationally trained chefs and waiters guarantee exquisite food flavor and high service standards. In Latin, "Salve" means - "Welcome!" Which excellently reflects the essence of the restaurant, as each guest is gladly welcome there.
