My wife and I just arrived in Helsinki and were staying at the Raddison Blu Seaside a short walk to Salve. The reception was pleasant and we knew we were in for a treat when we realised the restaurant was filled with locals. I chose...More

Salve is an old restaurant in Helsinki. Unfortunately moved from its "original" spot across the street to a new "shopping mall". Interior and feeling of the house is definitely lost, the menu and the staff the same. Here you can have Baltic herring fried in...More

My boyfriend and I had sauteed reindeer, alk hamburger and salmon soup and everything was very good, more than expectations. Kind stuff also. Recommended!

I haven't seen the old place but the decor here was nice, had the old feel, all sorts of stuff concerning sailing and sailors. The food was excellent and pricey (standard prices in Finland). The staff was very busy, forgot us once in awhile but...More

I went to Salve on the recommendation of the hotel. It was OK, but a little disappointing. The food was somewhat bland. I had reindeer but it could have been anything. Prices are reasonable.

This restaurant was founded in 1897 but it's not even in the same building anymore. There's nothing special, location is ok, place clean and staff talks also English. Order their baltic herrings (served with mashed potatoes) or a wiener schnitzel with french fries.

We had intended to go to a restaurant nearby, Konstan Möljä, but it turned out to be closed (Midsummer's Eve holiday). We really lucked out - Salve was just down the street. We were a party of 8 and had no reservations, but they accomodated...More

This traditional & old sailor restaurant (120 years) recently moved to a new location.Of course the new premises caused some losses of athmosphere. However, still the classic seafood on the menu, the seafood 'pyttipannu' or Baltic herring (silakka) are worth tasting.
