We have been visiting this restaurant for the past 7 years, on a regular basis. Unfortunately our recent experiences do not match up to our earlier ones. Popping in on a Sunday morning, recently, we ordered two coffees and two omlettes. The waitress was friendly, but her attention to us ended once the coffees were delivered. Fast forward, an hour...

We had an Our Deal voucher to eat here. Just as well. Made a booking for Sunday night. 7pm. Only about 4 other groups there of tables of 2-4, so not busy. We were shown to our table and our order subsequently taken but that is where the good service ended. Waited over 50 minutes for our main and they... More

Pretty much everything bad, unfortunately.... service: extremely slow (45 minutes wait for 2 baguettes and a kid menu that did not even come to the table at the same time!), totally casual and simply careless. Food: very limited choices for lunch, weird menu combination, low quality ingredients used (the bottom-shelf, pre-cooked baguettes from Coles are better!). price: high street ones,... More

My partner and I recently ate here, we found a voucher on deals.com.au for $45 which included 1 entrée, 2 mains, 1 dessert and 2 glasses of wine which we used, I have given top value stars for this reason. The trio of dips were great, perfect selection. To the main.... we both opted for the eye fillet which was... More

We recently celebrated a big anniversary by having dinner at Saltwater on Kings, Kings Beach Caloundra. We had a very nice meal with a 3 dip tappas entre followed by two perfectly cooked rib steak for mains. Dessert included cramel cheese cake and an ooey gooey choclate dessert. The ambience is perfect with the surf in the background and quirky... More

Dined here with another couple and were given a nice table with ocean views. As it was mid week, the restaurant was not very busy, so the waitress chatted with us and gave us tips on what to order. Our food was delicious and was delivered in a timely fashion. The drinks were reasonably priced and the beer was very... More

I live at Kings Beach & when a girlfriend visited from Brisbane last Saturday I wanted a lunch venue with a view and Saltwater was perfect - overlooking the beach with a good beachy vibe. Shame the service was so poor ( if the staff don't want to be there either pretend or work elsewhere) and the menu was pretentious... More
