Great food, great service

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.

When ever we visit a place for the first time, we always make an effort to try the local food. We found a few places advertising a local menu but chose Salve for the simple reason that it looked nice, and it's central location made it easy to find again. Another reason was the tasting menu, which we chose. It... More

My boyfriend and I were interested in trying Latvian cuisine during our stay in Riga in February 2015 and had a wonderful time at Salve. The wine list was diverse and reasonably priced. The food was absolutely delicious and we were not disappointed by anything, everything was a treat. The staff were fantastic and made excellent recommendations. Couldn't say a... More

What initially appeared to be an attractively designed and perfectly located place to have a meal turned out to be a disaster. Both meals were appalling to the extent that neither of us could eat more than a few mouthfuls. The chicken was rubbery, processed and tasted unusual. The pork was similar in texture but just about tolerable. The potatoes... More

My girlfriend and I ate at this restaurant on December 30th 2014, the staff were really friendly and the food was very good too. I would recommend going to this restaurant to eat as it is literally next door to The House of the Blackheads so it's ideal whilst sightseeing, plus there's nothing really bad I can say about it....

The staff are friendly. U can call them by pushing a call button on the table. The food is genuine Latvian cuisine, downright rural but well prepared and served in big portions. The beer is good and the wine list is well diversified. We went back a second time and were not disappointed. the restaurant is right next to the... More

This is a really good restaurant it you want to try some local cuisine. Looks pricey but it's quite normal. Probably a little bit more than what the tourist traps charge but better for the interesting experience. Highly recommend it.

There's a lot to like about this restaurant. Its in a prime position (literally within a few paces of House of the Blackheads) & is attractive, welcoming & cosy. Staff are very friendly & attentive without being too intrusive & in the case of our waiter speak excellent english. The cuisine is Latvian, of very good quality & well presented.... More
