Healthy and very local experience!

Food was fresh, we got some cucumbers with sour cream and honey, render with cranberries, salmon cremy coup and beers, all was nice and portions were big.

We enjoyed the food which was plentiful and well prepared. The menu offered a good range of dishes, not all of them traditional restaurant meals. as a starter, there was a small salad buffet. We were there for late lunch, and the place was packed with pensioners enjoying the fare, and nobody was in a hurry, so the atmosphere was... More

Dinner here with local business colleagues resulted in me eating a huge portion of crispy fried herrings and a mound of buttery and heavenly mashed potato. Add a good beer and what more could you wish for? Good simple food with great service.

We visited Salve upon recommendation from friends who regularly visit Finland and often end up eating in this cosy restaurant near the port. Staff was friendly and service was swift and efficient. The dishes we had picked were hearty local fare, suited to the temperatures that were hovering just above freezing point. I picked a patty made of elk mince... More

Old style baltic herrings are one of my favorite choice. Home made mashed potatoes with a lot of butter keeps you on the road. Simple portion but so delicious. Salve is an old sailors restaurant and a nice cool place for people who are not looking any fine dining lunch or dinner and like to have good local food.

Obviously, this place is not a well kept secret anymore. If you come here without a reservation you´ll have to come early. Also, expect at least three quarters of the patrons to be tourists. Having said that, the place does deserve it´s popularity. It´s cozy, original and its roots as a sailors pub are authentic. There is even some seating... More

Nice place, service is great and the food is just what you would expect from a place that is self-proclaimed a "typical sailors' joint": fat, salty and certainly tasty! I totally recommend it.
