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.

“Great location and food better than average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The place is located right at the Riga's town square - near the key sightseeing locations of the city. Interior is really pleasant and confortable with a hint of antique furniture and etc. However the food (speciality is local Latvian cuisine) was not as good as in restaurant "1221" located not far away. I mean the food was really good tasting and generally pleasant and so on, however it can't be called the top notch if you compare it with "1221" for instance.

P.S. they have really nice beer there

“Good Latvian food, perfect service for families with children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We went with our 1.5 year old daughter on Easter eve and it was a good experience. Not the most exciting food but very efficient service.
We took the 5 course set menu, and were very surprised that our daughter managed to stay in her chair the whole meal, because of the service which never kept us waiting.
The food was good and well made, prices affordable.
Nice rustique furniture.
