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.

I used to frequent this place regularly - the food used to be good, as did the service, the location still is nice. However, the service has become lousy - I will never go here ever again. Recently I was there and was ignored on purpose by the waitress and waited twenty minutes before walking out in disgust. No way... More

We had an iced coffee and an iced chocolate on a hot day, and both were made with lots of icecream and were nice and sweet-just how I like my iced coffee.

This restaurant sits along the busy foreshore of Kings Beach. A bit exposed to passing pedestrians but great for people watching yourself. The two waitresses that looked after us during the afternoon were excellent. The food was great. I had a chicken salad, which was perfect for a warm sunny afternoon lunch. Everyone on our table was happy with their... More
