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.

“Brilliant experience in Riga”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

I had a dinner at Salve. The first impression is the interior of the restaurant which is very traditional and relaxing. The waitress is very friendly and speaks good English. The food is nice, and the price is reasonable. What is more, the big surprise that I had from this visit is the lovely photo which the waitress took and sent to me via epost the next day. Thanks!

I recommend this restaurant for the visit to Riga!

“Best dumpling so far”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Went to Salve for lunch, having recognised the name from searching TA earlier.
Service was mixed..... We asked for a table by the window to be told it was booked. Not a smile or another word from the grumpy lady that showed us to a table, but the window table was still free when we'd left! Young waiter spoke good English and was more helpful.
Homemade dumplings were the best I've had outside of Poland and better than those we tried in Lihtuania! The rest of the meal was good, but nothing special! Wine was decent and not too expensive.
Higher end Latvian cuisine, worth the extra over the normal stodgy dishes!

“Lovely atmosphere and food”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We were a party of eight. From the fish cakes to the sausages, everything was delicious, as was the traditional starter of herring with beetroot stack, sprinkled with hard boiled egg. and the pumpkin soup.
Our charming waitress "Kate" was helpful and knowledgeable.
The prices were commensurate with the setting, and situation - near St. Peter's Church ( and the Information Centre).

The restaurant is located in a successful place. Great Latvian cuisine, service and decor. Not very cheap compared with other places. Nevertheless, I highly recommend!!!
