This restaurant was such a find. We ate here twice during our weekend break. Beautiful atmospheric traditional interior, very cosy and Christmassy in December, and fantastic Latvian cuisine. Probably a bit of a tourist showpiece but great ambience and a lovely dining experience. Would recommend...More

A quiet night at the restaurant. The food was even better than expected, but the most unexpected of all was the intact service by waiter "Ilja". All the best to both the restaurant and Ilja. The world belongs to you.

We wanted the true Latvian food experience but unfortunately the food was not good. The Stroganoff was dry and cold, the potato pancakes with salmon had very little salmon. Desserts were fine and the best course. Service was friendly. Surroundings traditional. 30 euros for 3...More

We came here around 19-20 in the evening. It was not so many people, and we were seated quickly. But we still had to wait for our food for almost 1 hour! The portions were very small, but the food tasted nice. Price ok, but...More

We had a nice dinner at this restaurant, but I think it would make a better lunch place - it was a bit loud. The Caesar salad was just okay, the dressing wasn’t a true Caesar dressing. The food was good and the service was...More

Would highly recommend especially for a fussy eater. The only tiny criticism is finding the place as it is down a lane with no sign used Google maps to find it. The interior is olde world everything wood we sat on the benches covered in...More

By the look of the place you don't think the food is excellent. But it is! Very tasty, and good sized portions. I highly recommend this place.

"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.
