We came for the Latvian degustation menu on a Tuesday evening. We were amazed by the simple but delicious food. Not to mention the good beer. The atmosphere is very cozy and the service is super friendly.

We especially liked the salmon and potato pancakes starter, and beef stroganoff. The portions are generous - so make sure you're hungry! The service was great, and our waiter spoke good English

Conveniently-located and charming location in the center of old town staffed by attentive and friendly locals. The food is actually very good. The salmon was of a particularly fine quality. Excellent option for couples, families, etc. with a warm and inviting decor.

We ate pumpkin soup, dumplings and potato pancakes and all of these were so tasty! Service was extremely fast and friendly and the service button was a great innovation. This was the second time I visited this restaurant and I would definitely go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Salve. Appetizer "Baltic trio" that consists of salmon, herring and sprays is definitely something to recommend. Salmon cupcakes with a side of potato mash was perfect. The mushroom sauce that it is served with is extremely delicious. Grilled salmon was very good, but nothing special.

Description
"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.
