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.

Really enjoyed our meals-excellent steak,cooked perfectly and a great lamb dish. The vegetables served with our meals were beautifully prepared and served-delicious! Would definitely go back if ever in Dunedin.

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

We had a very enjoyable time at Salt - the staff in the bar for pre dinner drinks were really good and helpful and they even found us a table for three at the restaurant we hadn't booked :( The Risotto was really really good I had mine without meat and our friend had chicken with hers. 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

I'm a little bemused at reading some of the other reviews, Salt put out great food and the staff appeared relaxed but professional. I ended up going there twice whilst in Dunedin and struck great hospitality both times

Was recently on holiday in Dunedin and found Salt online. Looked nice, so we tried it out for drinks and nibbles after a day of driving around the Otago Peninsula. We were so pleased with the atmosphere, service and food that we went back the next day for dinner. I highly recommend the Karaage Chicken starter which was DELICIOUS and... More
