We had a good meal. Tried the sauerkraut soup with pork served in a bread roll. The waitress was amused that we tore it apart and ate it all. Why wouldn't we? We also tried their homemade chicken dumplings served with sour cream which were tasty...just the right amount without affecting space for your main... definitely seeing a trend of... More

I had a dinner at Salve. The first impression is the interior of the restaurant which is very traditional and relaxing. The waitress is very friendly and speaks good English. The food is nice, and the price is reasonable. What is more, the big surprise that I had from this visit is the lovely photo which the waitress took and... More

Went to Salve for lunch, having recognised the name from searching TA earlier. Service was mixed..... We asked for a table by the window to be told it was booked. Not a smile or another word from the grumpy lady that showed us to a table, but the window table was still free when we'd left! Young waiter spoke good... More

We were a party of eight. From the fish cakes to the sausages, everything was delicious, as was the traditional starter of herring with beetroot stack, sprinkled with hard boiled egg. and the pumpkin soup. Our charming waitress "Kate" was helpful and knowledgeable. The prices were commensurate with the setting, and situation - near St. Peter's Church ( and the... More

The restaurant is located in a successful place. Great Latvian cuisine, service and decor. Not very cheap compared with other places. Nevertheless, I highly recommend!!!

The restaraunt was very quiet, but could be the time of year, also it's more on the expensive side for Latvians and tourists, but it was our anniversary and we wanted something special, I had the trout and my husband had the duck, we were very impressed with the taste and presentation, and dessert was really nice, balsom creme brule,...

We visited Salve last weekend, the food was great, the waiter was excellent! He went the extra mile to answer our questions and make recommendations of local places to go. They have a buzzer system on the table and within seconds of pushing the buzzer the waiter was their ready to help, very attentive service without feeling crowded. My only... More

We visited here on our first night in Riga and it didn't disappoint! All the staff were lovely and friendly. I had the chicken with spinach which was tasty, nice blue cheese sauce on the side and plenty of it. I would really recommend though, as other people say, getting the pork knuckle, my boyfriend had it and it was... More
