It's a good place to tray some Latvian food. The service was good and the atmosphere ok. We ordered chicken breast for lunch, it was a big portion and the taste ok.

Restaurant Salve is a beautiful place. We had a six-course meal, the Latvian specialties. Very good. Great is the typical dessert with rye bread. We got a picture in our mailbox afterwards.

This is a pretty nice place where to try some traditional Latvian food. Atmosphere was pleasant though a bit noisy, service was average but acceptable since we visited it during winter holidays and the place was full. Also prices are not very high for the quality of food.

You shall certainly taste "Latvian sauerkraut soup in a bread loaf". Strongly recommend this place for dinner.

I am amazed of this restaurant. It was very delicious and very interesting food in the menu. I recommend the pork and lamb. Also there is a soup served in bread. Draft beer was perfect.

"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.
