Hands down one of the best restaurants in Riga! Gorgeous traditional Latvian food at reasonable prices. The soups are beautiful especially the sauerkraut soup served in a bread bowel and the beef stroganoff is out of this world, but the real star of the menu...More

Quality of food was really good and I particularly liked the herrings with onions. Prices are on the expensive side for Riga, but that's fine considering the central location. Very nice outdoor terrace too if you happen to be here on a warm sunny day.

"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.
