This is a really good restaurant it you want to try some local cuisine. Looks pricey but it's quite normal. Probably a little bit more than what the tourist traps charge but better for the interesting experience. Highly recommend it.

Great central location and friendly staff speaking excellent English and Russian, plus delicious food can be an excuse for a bit higher level of prices. Still, I would recommend this place to newcomers to Riga looking for tasty local food

"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.
