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.

“Bad service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Group Dinner OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

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.

“Belated Birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 everything I wanted.

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