the service at this restaurant is second to none, I eat out a lot all over the world and this restaurant would have to be up there with my top places. We were a group of 'older' patrons and the large table they had put us at was making it difficult to hear each other. On inquiring if we could... More

From the moment that I had my first drink, a Pale Lady cocktail, I was hooked. Every mouthful was delicious, the staff were fabulous. I even called a month later for the recipe for the cocktail and the bartender could not have been more helpful. It was a beautiful romantic dinner in a fabulous restaurant. I am saving my pennies...

We were a group of 7 for a family dinner and no one was disappointed. A bit on the expensive side but excellent value for money. The fantastic thing about the menu at A Touch of Salt is that you have the option of ordering an entree size main course for most of the courses - which is great when... More

My first true restaurant experience that made me feel extremely special. I have never been to a restaurant like this before. Happy, friendly and devoted staff. And the food delicious. I will definitely go again and again and again. The prices are good too.

A Touch of Salt is not a gourmet or glammy eating establishment, but it does provide a tasty and adequate repast at a quite reasonable price. The location on the river is quite attractive and the service efficient.

I highly recommend going to see this place! The staff were amazing and food was sublime! I had the duck and it fell apart in my mouth. First time I've had it and I was not disappointed!

Nothing to fault here. The ambiance is relaxed but with a sense of occasion. Staff are warm and welcoming, enhancing your dining experience. The menu is innovative and never boring. I chose the venison which just melted in my mouth and the dessert was sublime: it delighted the eye as well as the palate, and satisfied my sweet tooth without... More
