Went on sat evening wth my hubby. He has made the reservation. We had nice evening. The menu was good and you can find food for your taste. Maybe the portions are a little big too big. You wont be hungry after eating here. Even If you share dessert it’s enough. Would go again

I went to Salve because I wanted to eat Scandinavian food while visiting Helsinki. Salve is a mid-priced, family-friendly restaurant - reminds me of Beefeater or Harvester in the UK, including with unlimited salad bar! But the portions were generous, and the service friendly, so it felt like good value. I had the meatballs, which were huge and served on a mountain of mash. I enjoyed the meal, though if you wanted to eat similar food but having a 'nicer' meal out, and higher quality, I would recommend Sea Horse, also in Helsinki.

I visited this well-known and much loved traditional Helsinki restaurant last weekend. I had a fish dish with gorgeous wild mushrooms sauce and mashed potatoes. It was delicious! They do a great variety of dishes, drinks and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. I will be visiting again!

Salve is a traditional seaman tavern, established in 1897. In 2016 it was forced to move a new location.

However they managed to keep the old atmosphere and also the menu is the same, including the classic dish fried Baltic herring. The portions are huge.

We started with herring to share, like eating large whitebait, lovely. Then we had meatballs, elk burger (no bun) and seafood potatoe hash. All food and staff were excellent
