Beautiful food and gorgeous view

One of the best hotel restaurants I've been to. Beautiful views of the water by day, nice relaxed atmosphere at night. The food is the performer though. Always delightful.

Group of 6 had a lovely meal. All were very well presented, salt & pepper squid risotto highly recommended. Pork belly was great. All meals were interesting and great value.

You'll find it hard to find a restaurant with views as good as here on a sunny day. Great city location and the restaurant is always clean with a varying menu. The only downside for me was where we were seated. The restaurant was busy as it was lunchtime so the only table for two free faced outside. The view... More

The food was outstanding, I had the John Dory fish main which was perfectly cooked as was the lamb back strap main which my partner ordered. The dessert sharing plate was fantastic.

We were the only people in the place for brunch on a Sunday morning. Others were there but already had their meals. The staff were friendly but not that efficient, it took 20 minutes for our coffees and 10 minutes longer for our meals. The they forgot the side order so another wait for that. Shame really as the food... More

Our meal was well presented and delicious. As it was summer we requested a table on the balcony. It is on the main road so if you feel the traffic noise would bother you, request an indoor table. The view is great, being waterfront. Our server was most attentive which made our dining experience even better.

I have travelled all over the world, and have to say the meal we had tonight came in my top 5! It was superb! I had the scallops and then the duck. They were so good, I couldn't even bring myself to have dessert, which is unheard of for me! Excellent service too. A really wonderful experience. Thank you Salt.
