A group of us dined here recently. We all enjoyed our meal. Food was well presented and delicious.only drawback was vegetables are not included in the main and come as an extra at $7 a bowl for 1 type of veg. A bit expensive if you want 2 veg! A bonus was we were given a complimentary starter. Very tiny... More

The young chef measures up to create both a presentation and a combination of flavours that are second to none. The chicken pate is very very special. Unique in both presentation and taste. The setting is perfect with a beautiful view of the Taranaki coast line which is, in itself breath taking. Try to wash it down with Carrick Unravelled... More

It was a lovely meal. I had the fish of the day, snapper, with a side of beans, which was very nice, but was enough for the four of us, think I may have been told how much there would be, I thought if you ordered a side dish it was a serving for one? But overall a great meal... More

The best spot to have a relaxing drink and watch the sunset from their deck, in New Plymouth. Panoramic views of coastline, with attentive service and lovely menu. They change their menu regularly, and there is always lots of yummy seasonal choices .

I visited Salt for dinner last night and had the pleasure of experiencing their new Winter menu which I understand has been developed by their new head chef from the UK. What a remarkable experience the whole evening was. We had entree, main and shared the desert platter and there are no faults. The meals were “fun” and really clever.... More
