Cosy, comfortable, lovely staff and affordable prices. Gourmet food - not at its best - but certainly good enough. I would go again.

Started off with a free taste of the pumpkin soup which was good! The fried rye bread and cheese sauce is a must. Enjoyed the chicken fillet with mashed potato and hazelnut sauce. Food was good but a bit expensive.

We loved the interior, the female waiter which was friendly, attentive and with good humour. Food very nice - try the salade nicoise. We loved this and had a perfect lunch at Salve. Location in the old town also excellent.
