I was here as part of a Baltic tour with the meal included so I don't know the value for money status. But I really enjoyed the local cuisine, beetroot and potato soup, and fish with baked potatoes.

Really good position. We were looking for local food, and we found it. Good service, great food. Try the pork knuckle!! It's huge and tasty!! I don't know if it's typical in Latvia, but they served, when we requested, bread and frozen butter. Weird

"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.
