As we have a coeliac in our group, a little research for dining was required. Got this booked for 8 ladies on a Saturday night and enjoyed our meal - all freshly cooked. We all decided on the beef stroganoff as a main and thoroughly...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

Next to the House of Blackheads. Book in advance. Lovely food and fast and friendly service. Not high priced. We liked the decor and that with a push button got hold of the service.

This restaurant was such a find. We ate here twice during our weekend break. Beautiful atmospheric traditional interior, very cosy and Christmassy in December, and fantastic Latvian cuisine. Probably a bit of a tourist showpiece but great ambience and a lovely dining experience. Would recommend...More

A quiet night at the restaurant. The food was even better than expected, but the most unexpected of all was the intact service by waiter "Ilja". All the best to both the restaurant and Ilja. The world belongs to you.

"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.
