We ate here on a breezy but sunny February evening and decided to eat on the balcony overlooking the sea. The friendly staff even provided blankets to keep us warm. The food was very good and nicely presented, although quite expensive.

Last night we had an impromptu Dad and Son night, as the missus and the other son were elsewhere. We booked a table for two for a 6:15 kick-off and were greeted by name by a familiar waitress on arrival. We were given a choice of tables. Having just done a two week detox (see Michelle Yandle on Facebook) I... More

Have been to Salt restaurant twice in the last month, once for lunch and once for dinner. It has become the wonderful restaurant it was before my last review. The menu is exciting with great flavour combinations eg squid with roasted hazelnuts for a lunchtime dish. Their platters are generous in size and well balanced. We went in a group... More

We had a weekend lunch at this restaurant. The staff were attentive and obliging and it was no trouble that we moved from an outside table into the dining room when a cold wind blew in. While the food was tasty, the size of our two meals was very unbalanced. While I received an entree sized main (tomato salad), my... More

thank you for coming to Salt for lunch. We are delighted you had a nice experience. We are sorry you felt the meals were unbalanced. The chicken Kebabs were a special for the day so this is why that meal was larger than you might have been expecting. Appreciate your visit and feedback. best regards The Salt team. More

Came here quite a while back & with family members. The good was great & staff very friendly. We polished up all the platters clean & one family member commented just fine as less work for the dish washers.
