A visit to Salud is like a warm hug from a friendly Spaniard. Comforting, passionate and just that little bit sexy.
It's probably fair to suggest Salud is one of the best restaurants in Malacca, maybe even all of Malaysia, the quality of produce, and the care taken with presentation is impressive, add in some wonderful atmosphere and you're in for an evening to remember.
We were just a party of two so sat at the long bench overlooking the kitchen bar area, it makes for a night of theatre as well as giving a sneak preview of the other dishes available.
There's an impressive wine list, with a really nice house wine, red and white by the glass and bottle, if you travel anywhere in Malaysia you'll know that the wines are usually on the high side of the price spectrum, Salud's wine list is in keeping with those prices but still fair and worth splashing out on a bottle.
All in all a great night out in the centre of the town.

Was there for a special anniversary dinner and they lived up to our usual expectations.
Warm and friendly staff, excellent food, great ambience.
One the best tapas we have had in some time - very reasonable prices too.

Have to start off by saying hats off to the wonder that is the food. Did not expect to be brought back to my youth in Andalucia by a restaurant in Melaka. But Salud and its gorgeous food managed to bring me back memories of many wonderful days at my favourite tapas chiringuito in Estepona.
From simple pan con tomate, to a beautifully cooked secreto iberico, and a flamboyant fiery chorizo that has my wife giggling with anticipation, I can without a doubt recommend this place for anyone wanting a taste of Spain's heartful cuisine.
Also as a side, the owners are lovely, and very open and passionate about their work. I did not get a chance to taste the Tio Pepe he showed me he had hidden in a cupboard for special ocassions, but I hope I will get a chance in the future. Salud, you really are a gem.

The chef is Spanish, and he gets authentic cheeses and cured meats from Spain. He's also passionate about his cooking, and it shows in the end products. He uses the best available fresh local produce along with the food sourced from Spain for his delicious tapas. He used to have Spanish beer, but unfortunately no longer does. However, the Spanish gins are great!

We were warmly welcomed into SALUD and it set the tone for a wonderful experience. The service was the best we experienced in Melaka and the food was delicious. Many of the tapas portions were larger than expected.
Don't miss this gem of a restaurant.
