A Lovely, but Lonely Lunch

We purchased a voucher online, not quite knowing what to expect. Our expectations took a dive at first sight, because the outside dining section looks rather tired and in need of a little TLC. However the inside dining area looks clean and inviting. We chose to sit outside, to look at the... read more

Being tourists, we didn't realise this venue had 'mid week' deals. Our timing was perfect and not only was the meal discounted, but it was of a very high standard and the portions were very good. The service was excellent with staff being polite and helpful. We certainly recommend this restaurant.

Closed up and closed down. Under previous management (Sally) this was a good quality venue. Sad to watch it deteriorate over the last two years. The recent review postings on TripAdvisor say it all. The view is still great, the premises are up for lease, the holiday season is around the corner....any budding risk taking restaurateurs out there?!

We thought Saltwater was closed when we arrived for breakfast at 9.30! Chairs and tables were still stacked. Tables not set. Had a booking so got our own chairs and sat at table. After 15 mins served by a friendly but inexperienced waitress. Coffee cold, food lacking in flavour and presentation. Restaurant very run down, worn furniture, rusty fans and... More

Bought a groupon breakfast voucher for 4 cost $37. Ordered Eggs Benedict, you know the usual one with poached eggs. A poached egg by definition has a runny yolk. The chef's (and I use the term loosely) first two attempts gave us rock hard eggs. Look at the photo of attempt number three! How any reasonable person could send this... More

I would like to start by saying thank you to the chef. Your food was fabulous. My partner and I tried four items from the breakfast menu and were impressed by the portions, flavour and fresh ingredients each time. Secondly the coffee's are great. BUT... why oh why are you taking such a great little place and running it in... More

Recently we had breakfast at the restaurant. It was well cooked and presented. The bacon was crispy and the eggs cooked to our liking. Thanks to the chef Reuben. The wait staff, Vanessa who hails from Canada and Anja from Germany were pleasant and efficient. It was an excellent way to start the day. We recommend a visit. We will... More

We had a voucher we purchased on line. Food was very good and the restaurant was virtually on the beach. Good value for money

Had breakfast here with the family; the food was pretty good (nice scones, muesli and breakfast wraps) but the coffee was a bit lacking in flavour (thought I was back in the UK!) Nice location right on Kings beach.

I dined here on a groupon voucher, I am an avid user of these as it let's me experience places I would otherwise not go to. Sadly I wish I hadn't in this case. Firstly if a restaurant is using groupon it should be to encourage repeat business, neither the food, atmosphere or service would entice me to go back.... More
