A lovely location with friendly staff. Our best meal in Riga - I had the pork ribs and my husband the pork fillet with stewed cabbage as a side. Very tasty. There was lots of the menu that was tempting if we only had room!...More

Visited as a group of 18 on 3 tables and all seemed OK. Firstly they didn't have enough menus (which I hate!). Ordered drinks which all came, then ordered food and waited. Some starters appeared, some mains and then nothing for over an hour! Complaints...More

It was okay. Can't see it is 'local' at all!! Might be different in summer... winter was v dead & nothing special tbh. Not really a 'tasting' menu as we would expect.

Located directly next to The House of the Blackheads, Salve has really good comfort food. The decor is stunning but in a very casual setting. The photos show the Latvian Beef Stroganoff and the Pork Knuckle with sauerkraut. Both were very filling and delicious. There...More

"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.
