Service was bellow average. Food tasted ok but nothing more than that. They didn't even bother to call us a cab after a pretty expensive and tipped dinner even though we asked. Only positive was the interior.

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

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.

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.
