As I was travelling with a large group (58 Choristers) we had one meal at this restaurant. It was OK but I thought expensive compared with other restaurants I ate at in Riga.

After a slight surfeit of brew pubs, and a very disappointing visit to a highly rated, one I was after a rather more sophisticated meal. There was nothing to dissapoint me; the food, service, atmosphere and location were all lovely. The expresso coffee was the most delicious I have ever had. This was my 60th birthday celebration and it was... More

Tasty meals and great service. Nice location. The stuff speaks several languages freely so it is easy to talk.

I may never get a cold again. The chicken dumplings were like the best bowl of chicken noodle soup I've ever had, topped with dill, pink pepper corns and a large side of sour cream for dipping. I've been dreaming about them ever since. Not to be missed.

Salve is part of a restaurant group that also includes Piejura (almost identical menu), Province, and art nouveau restaurant Alberta 13. The location of Salve, in the middle of the old city, is convenient for tourists who make up the great majority of patrons. Unfortunately, the cooking is uninspired and rote. That works ok with some of the rustic stalwarts,... More

What an awesome restaurant! There were 7 of us ladies and we sat outside on a warm summers afternoon. It is right on the town square and there is lots to see. The waiters were very friendly and one even sang to us at the end of the meal. The food was delicious and very local which we liked. They... More

It was a pleasure sitting down on the veranda of Salve restaurant during a hot, steamy day in Riga. The staff was very corteous and even though the place was extremely busy, the service was prompt. My dish was a tasty trout on a bed of vegetables, enjoyed with a glass of white wine. The surprise at the end was... More

We went here for warm drinks and desserts on Līgo night (it was freezing cold outside!). It was quite close to closing time already, but it wasn't a problem for them to let us in, especially as we were only having dessert. The service was very friendly, the place was cosy, the desserts were super delicious! We can recommend their... More
