Good burger!

I came in to Salt to try the beef burger for lunch. Nice quality beef patty with veggies on top and lovely sauces. I ordered salad instead of Chips and it was good size and fresh. The service was friendly and fast.

We came here for dinner with the family. The service was fantastic, and our table was by the fire so was nice and warm. Our meals were delicious, we will be back!

Salt is a nice place although some of the staff can be a little hostile but understandable because it can be very busy in salt. We had to wait almost an hour to be served lunch but we were warned of the fact before being seated. I ordered the beef burger which was overpriced and the meat patty was over... More

I returned to Salt in March 2015 for a meal with colleagues. We arrived early and were seated near the 'fire' which was pleasant as it was a cold day. Our meals were great - I had fish followed by a dessert of Eton Mess which was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was friendly. I have already... More

Food is pub fare, nothing too fancy. Quite a small restaurant, good for kids. Has a bar area with sports on the telly if you want to just pop in for a drink. Service was okay, everyone was friendly. Food was good.

Great little cafe by the seaside, third visit there, always a must when in Dunedin, well priced, breakfast for four with two takeaway coffees for $95, not a lot left on the plates and good coffee.

Less than 75m from St Clair surf beach and within walking distance of the surf club and patrolled swimming and surfing areas, Salt is a great spot for coffee and snacks. Also serves alcoholic beverages and cooked fare including lunch and dinner. Good service, although this becomes a little stretched when busy...perhaps one more front-of-house staff member required? Always good... More

While the bar area is noisy,especially with sports on the TV, the adjacent restaurant is fine. We had dinner on a Friday night and it was busy, however the staff were excellent and service expeditious. Good selection on the menu - we both had fish main course. Food was fresh,tasty and nicely presented. Prices were competitive. We would definitely go... More
