Breakfast - poor poor service

I liked the food but when it's served by a surly attitude it ruins the whole experience We went to the counter to pay and were greeted by the young lady with 'what do you want?' I will never go back to such an unwelcoming place.

Waiting 10 minutes on arrival to be acknowledged - had to go get own menus Ordered coffees to start - 20 mins later placed food order. Still no coffees. Ordered poached eggs with tomato and avocado and hashbrowns. 45 mins gone still no coffee, food arrives. 2 small pieces toast, a tiny "poached egg" which was actually hard boiled and... More

Had lunch here with my parents last Saturday. My pumpkin and halloumi salad is one of the best salads I've ever eaten. I like the casual feel this place had and being absolute beachfront the view was fantastic.

Waited 40 mins for 2 coffees. Breakfast order lost in the system. No real apology and still charged us for the coffees. As a local, we used to frequent this restaurent regularly, however disappointed and it appears that the new owners don't get it. Like many others we shall take our busiess next door or to Crumbz.

We've been coming here very regularly over the Christmas holidays for the last few years. Last year we popped in for coffee almost every day. The service used to be fabulous and the free bit of brownie with the coffee always kept us coming back. This year we have been in about four times and each time the service has... More

I stumbled here for a late lunch due to the nearby choices all closing or closed. I was concerned that it may not be very good value given the view and the food choices on offer. I was wrong. The serving sizes were not minimalist, they were generous and delicious. After much thought I finally settled on the Prawn and... More

Enjoyed breakfast this morning! Prompt service and great tasting food! Lots of different things on the menu like the dukkah coated eggs and creole styled eggs. The view is awesome and atmosphere casual as it's right on Kings Beach. I can't wait to try the lunch menu and very happy to be a local to try it ASAP!!! PS think... More

We wanted to change up our end of year club dinner at a new venue and Saltwater at Kings was recommended. I had never been there before but after our great night out at the restaurant I will be going back. The service was good it was really busy but the staff kept coming to see if we needed any... More

I came to this restaurant with a friend who was visiting from Brisbane and I had been here before and I had been impressed in the past, but they must have had a change of management or something because this place has gone down hill big time! We waited forever to get our meals. In fact, another couple of people... More

Great location but that is about the best Saltwater has to offer. We have tried it twice on two separate visits, the second time we left before we even ordered the service was so bad. So did two other families.
