I dined with two visitors from the USA. We all tried different dishes and all were excellent. The Oysters were the best I have had anywhere. Service was good and knowledgeable on a bust Thursday evening. The ambience dining outside on the banks of the Ross Rivew ( more a creek),right in town was great. Highly recommended.

Friday night can be busy at most good restaurants and this was no exception. There was a group of 70 sat inside and I would say 30 or so outside where we preferred to sit. Everybody for a 730 sitting and we did not even know they were there. The service, menu, attentiveness, quality of product and timing was faultless.... More

My partner says he is not a gnocchi fan but the conversation stops and he emits sounds more familiar in the bedroom as we savour this dish. Not enough space here to properly praise the bugs, arancini, trout and haloumi dishes which were all outstanding. Now he is wriggling in his sest over the okra. Every didh has a surprise... More

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.
