I've been to many restaurants in Dunedin, and this was by far the best meal I've had. I ordered the Blue Cod and it was incredible. The portions were outstanding and the salad and chips were perfect. I am also a lover of aioli and tartare sauce, both of which were the best I have ever had, not too garlicy... More

It has become a habit for my friends and I to frequently eat here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. It hasn't failed us yet! Bacon and eggs, eggs benedict, bacon butties. Yum. And we reckon you get a good cup of coffee here.

Great service, wide and varied interesting menu. Excellent coffee. Space onside or a sheltered spot outside. Kumara cakes with salad was great, only didn't give five stars as they should have been hotter, for some reason they were warm only. Salad lovely.

Fantastic atmosphere, nice and warm. Wine well priced. Food fresh and tasty. Service friendly and prompt. Were preemptive, didn't have to chase the staff for a thing.

Met some friends here for a drink and decided after a few beers to have a meal. I'm not a big fan of pub meals but I have to say we had a good pub meal here. Menu was more interesting than most and the food was good. As for a pub, lots of fried options but we were anticipating... More

Stayed in Dunners for four days, Went to Salt twice. Meals are fabulous, whether you want a really good coffee, drinks, or a meal, this is the place to go. The bruschetta is to die for. Situated by the beach Salt has a really nice ambiance. If you're ever in Dunedin definitely put Salt at the top of your To... More

The cod that... More

We had high expectations of a beautiful coffee and dessert but left disappointed. Granted they were busy but it did take some time for our order to arrive. My husband's coffee was great, mine tasted more like a weak latte and they were both orders of flat white's. The waiter was friendly. My husband had white chocolate cheesecake that was... More
