Located next to the sea, it has some great views and good outdoor seating. Featuring a variety of dishes, including several Finnish, we really enjoyed the atmosphere, location and the meal. We ordered the Reindeer and the Elk, and while both were exceptional it was...More

Had a late night dinner on my honeymoon. Brilliant service, exquisite (and large!) food & servings, excellent customer service — and a super traditional Finnish mood :) Warm recommendations from a couple on their honeymoon!

Very cose and some historical place on sea embankment. Big hulf-lighted hall, wooden tables. Very tasty Finnish meals, including fish, meat and desserts. Friendly stuff, fast service. Prices are a little higher than average.

We went to the Salve on a two week Business trip and went to Salve 3 times. Each time the food was terrific. But the third time was the longest I have ever been in a restaurant. It took an hour for our starter and...More

Booked during the day to guarantee we had a table. The service was beyond slow, although the staff were friendly and apologetic. Didn’t enjoy my garlic bread (fried and very hard), nor my meatballs. It was expensive for what it was and had much better...More
