WOW. A great meal

Just had dinner at Saltwater on Kings. WOW. Very happy with the service we received. All staff we encountered were both friendly and helpful. Choice was good and meal size was amazing. One would not walk out hungry from here. Meal was very tasty and served HOT (which to me is very important). Do... read more

I have been lucky enough to experience this fantastic restaurant on several occasions and have never left disappointed. The service is really friendly and the food is always fresh and at a really great price. Children are also made to feel welcomed this allows for a really fresh, relaxed environment. I look forward to eating here again

I was a little disgusted to see Saltwater's previous reviews on here as I am a Caloundra local and visit this restaurant on a regular basis. It's always nice to catch up with friends here for breakfast, lunch or dinner and we have never once left disappointed. The atmosphere is always relaxed and the front of house staff are continually... More

I would like to comment on the service.......but it didn't make an appearance. When dining out, I expect better food than I prepare at home. I also expect service. Why else would I dine out? The service was condescending and bad mannered. The food was terrible. The oysters, packed in ice, tasted only of ice with no taste of oyster... More

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. The worst service, waited for 20 minutes to be given water. Asked to be moved out of the rain, got a table with a filthy tablecloth. Asked for that to be changed - got one from another table which they turned upside down. Staff with Surly couldn't care less attitude.... More

Chicken cold in the middle. Must have been pre cooked and then reheated (not very well). Would expect that the chicken would be cooked at the time of ordering! Paella terrible. Wouldn't even call it Paella. Only 1 red wine on the menu available. Locals and never going there again.

As a family of 4, we are always looking for great, affordable places to eat. We dined here on a sunday night with another family of 4 and can definitely say we were all very impressed. The service from staff was pleasant and efficient and the menu offered a great variety of dishes and an excellent range of $10 kids... More
