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.

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 courses and drinks each so this may reflect the standard.

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 not good considering the size of the meal. Would not come back here.

Fine dining at a moderate price - that´s what it is! Don´t miss out on seafood, we had three starters to share and were more than satisfied. Tuna, herring and salmon, accompanied by fresh bread and sauces, plus a glass of wine provide for a light and enjoyable dinner in the old town. One thing I wouldn't recommend is dessert, Riga is definitely not the capital of sweets, but the rest of the menu makes up for it.

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 wonderful but I just thought the vibe was a bit more casual. Make a reservation it can get busy.
