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.

This restaurant only has two choices of beer. Dark and Light. The dark was delicious, flavorful, and not at all bitter. The highlight of our meal was definitely the dumplings which are handmade and perfectly chewy. They are served in a most delicious broth with...More

We ordered chicken and pork fillet with mashed potatoes. Meat was very nicely cooked and well seasoned. The price was a bit too salty for meal (which both included fillets, two tomato slices, sauce and a herb as a decoration), but at least it was...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.
