Bistro By The Sea

The location is excellent with a view of the beach & ocean. The food is good but sometimes takes a little long to be served.

Sadly, Saltbush will be closing it's doors on Saturday 15th June, 2015. Hopefully new owners will make something of this magnificent location right on the Esplanade at Aldinga Beach. Thanks for the 'fab' pizzas.

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
