The food is fantastic....the complementary spinach panacotta had me wanting to lick my jar (yes that is what it came in!) and the meal....just superb...if you live in or are visiting New Plymouth you really need to sample the Salt menu!!! Am looking for excuses to have to go back!!

After being turned away at only 8pm from Arborio I was welcomed into Salt and given great service. The menu choices are limited but the quality is fantastic. Prices pushing the limits but still worth it.

I hadn't been to Salt in 5 years and loved it back then. As I was in town I thought I would go back and it did not fail to impress. Great menu and the chef also has a flair for design with his creations. I'm here from Melbourne and this restaurant rivals any of the top spots I've dined... More

The restaurant is located on the first floor of the Waterfront Hotel (easy access from the street), overlooking the coastal walkway and the open sea behind. The service was excellent, not intrusive, the setting first class and the whole restaurant had an ambience that improved the experience. The food was off a relatively small mains menu (all $33) and was... More

Menu bit shorter than it used to be (post fire?) but good range but everything on it excellent. Great views over the walkway, sea. Nice verandah when weather allows. Prices 15-24 for most mains - went midday. Service just right.

On a warm day, the Salt Restaurant balcony is one of the best places in New Plymouth to dine... Highly recommended for their vista, food, and service.
