We spent a week in Wildernes and this was the fourth restaurant for dinner. The first three were excellent, this one not in the same league by far! Firstly, our waiter was not up to standard. He would just dissapear for long periods. The other waitress serving tables around us was so busy begging tables leaving to write a review... More

Salinas is one of the more up-market restaurants in the Wilderness area The menu had something for everybody with the Calamari being a standout. You can eat inside or out depending on the weather and the view is spectacular. Wait staff were efficient but friendly. Wine & food were reasonably priced and not overly expensive.

After reading some mixed reviews of Salinas we were reluctant to try it, but decided to give it a go, and so glad we did! The waiter was very friendly, service was fairly quick and the food was excellent. Topped off with a view to die for, we really enjoyed our visit!

Greetings from Sabie! Your food and service is excellent, the view fantastic and your hospitality great. Remember " you cant please everyone all the time as long as you please most of your guests most of the time". I trust the prawn platter was a winner! Definitely see you again next year.

My wife and I had a great lunch today at salinas. I had yellowtail and she had kingclip. Both were excellent. Waldorf salad to compliment the meal and a bottle of Springfield "life from stone" to wash it down.
