Baltic herring Wau

The Salve Restaurant in Helsinki is very well known of their Baltic Herring portion. It is very typical old Finnish home made food. This old sailor restaurant is making good food. I can recommend this to all.

Four of us had dinner at Salve one Sunday evening. The place was packed and we were glad that our hotel had made a booking for us. A side salad is included with the orders. The elk burgers and fried herrings came in large servings and were very good. The old pub atmosphere was a bonus. Well worth a visit.

Ate there twice, because it provided good quantities of well prepared food in a historic waterfront setting. This is a bit away from the tourist throng around the market square, and has a number of locals as customers. The staff is friendly and multilingual, the menu spells out the meals in enough detail to understand what you are getting. It... More

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
