We enjoyed a delicious meal overlooking the ocean on an evening that produced a spectacular Aldinga Beach sunset. Friendly and obliging service and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Went there with my family and a couple of friends. On arrival, spoke to staff and was told to "Grab a table outside, someone will be with you soon". Went out and sat at the only available table, which was a table for 10. Had to go and get a menu, which we then started having a read of. A... More

From entering a restaurant you generally get the feel of what you can expect. The inside of what was once a reasonably tidy place is now not pretty (and I'm being polite). Second hand sofas, tired chairs not tired enough to be cool. Staff didn't appear to be trained in anything. Owner has a permanent frown on his face and... More

There were plenty of cars and there's really no other place along Aldinga Esplanade for a coffee and brunch, so we stopped in. One gentleman was in the middle of clearing tables, greeted us politely and offered us a table. Then another gentleman offered us menus and took our drinks order. Both of them were in their "house casuals", and... More

I pick up my daughter from netball practice & get back to Aldinga about 7.30pm. Too late to cook dinner, so go to Saltbush Grill for the BEST 9inch $10 pizza ever. Order a glass of wine while I'm waiting & pizza is ready before my glass is empty. Had seafood pizza tonight. The prawns on it were enormous. None... More

We attended saltbush Bistro on a cold Sunday evening with some trepidation having browsed previous reviews. Mine host greated us warmly and offered complimentary Lebanese garlic bread which was very tasty and arrived in 20 minutes. We elected to dine inside the cosy restaurant even though the outside deck looked tempting with an attractive open wood fire. A selection of... More

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
