Situated at the Touw's river mouth in the Wilderness, facing west with sea and lagoon views serving island style cuisine. Sunsets on the upper deck with a cocktail add a whole new dimension to the end of a beautiful day and start of a great evening.

We enjoyed the excellent fish Salina's serve, my birthday lunch so 5of us had a variety of fish dishes and all were very good. Service was rather slow, which is unusual but overall it is a great restaurant and would recommend it. Especially for the fish!

Salinas Beach Restaurant has a great location, excellent food and seems very well managed. What's as important is the role it plays in providing the main beach at Wilderness with relief from the isolation and monotony of residential development that for the most part precludes public access to the foreshore. Thank you Salinas for making our visit to Wilderness beach... More

Stopped here for lunch while driving up the coast. The location is excellent, elevated overlooking the beach, surfers, dolphins, etc. The food was very good and there was great cold beer, cocktails and wines. It was not overly busy, but had a good "vibe". I would recommend for anyone in the area.

We were only on the first floor but we had an excellent view. The view from the second floor would be even better. The service was good and we just had tapas for lunch. It was excellent and good value.

We visited here for lunch on our way to Mosel bay and had a delightful lunch. What a wonderful spot! The food was excellent, service excellent and price excellent! Not forgetting the views! In the UK a restaurant like this would be charging significantly more for the views. In fact we had to return on our way back to Cape... More

Food here was fantastic - best meal we've had so far in SA! Would definitely recommend the fresh kingclip and butter chicken. Our waiter (Wikus?) was just delightful and really made it for us. Only reason this didn't get 5 stars was because we happened to be there on a sports night which was quite loud and rowdy. We were... More
