I attended Saltbush Bistro with 3 others, having a balcony table with views out over the ocean. After being seated for about 10 minutes waiting we were approached by a waitress wanting our order. No offer of drinks. We finally order two fishermans baskets, a serve of salt and pepper,squid and a pizza. Some fifty minutes later the pizza arrived... More

Had to clear our own table on arrival from last people's coffee cups, waited ages to be served, went to counter to order drinks but never got served. Ended up paying and leaving.

Friendly service, great location and a complimentary garlic bread pizza on the house. Thank you - we enjoyed it very much and will recommend your place.

Food was awful, the worst parmy I've ever had & the S&P squid was tasteless. The service was poor also! Definately won't be returning!

The Saltbush Bistro is an inconspicuous, casual bistro on the Esplanade at Aldinga Beach, some kilometres from other shops and restaurants in the area, making it a convenient place to dine when holidaying in the area. There is an option for inside and outside dining; the few outside tables have a lovely view of the ocean and inside the tables... More

We are locals to the area and decided to try the salt bush as we had not been here before. The food was tasty but overpriced and serves were far too small. My 4yr old daughter finished her children's meal and was still hungry.... and she's not a big eater. Bit disappointing really. Wouldn't return to the salt bush considering... More

We have been to this excellent little bistro many times and it never fails to impress. I have never had anything there that was not super fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff are relaxed and friendly. I just love it.

We went with a group of about 30 for a celebration dinner and enjoyed our evening at Saltbush. There were menus on each table which had been printed specially (by the bistro) for the occasion. Most of us were seated at round tables which was appreciated as it’s so much easier to converse than at a large rectangular table. We... More

We have been to the Saltbush quite a few times now. (It is our most local half decent eatery) The Saltbush is located right on the Esplanade with stunning views & great sunsets. The menu has something for everyone with aussie favourites like Schnitzel & fish & chips available, however, the dinner menu is always really nice with excellent steaks,... More
