Ordinary Place with OK Seafood

Saltwater fits well with most of the rest of the restaurants and cafes in Kiama - it's a casual, business-like high turnover place on the main shopping strip, selling good fish and chips and a mix of alternate seafood and extras to takeaway or sit in. "In" means the brightly lit sales area or some... read more

I often eat at Saltwater and always get a great meal. The staff at Saltwater are always friendly and efficient. The seafood is always fresh as are the salads. I like that you are given the choice in how your fish is cooked. As a regular I also enjoy dropping in for a coffee and a mars bar slice which... More

Went in today and ordered the grilled dory with chips, and the today's special (grilled fish). The portions were smaller than I expected, the utensils were dirty and overpriced for the portion size. Lesson learned. Next time I will go somewhere else.

We called into Saltwater Café for breakfast to commence a Shoalhaven Coast wine tasting trip we'd planned with friends. The food and beverage offerings were plentiful, but the prices for some of the meals were on the high side. I ordered the breakfast consisting of eggs, bacon and toast. It was nicely presented, and delicious, but the bacon contained too... More

The seafood platter was very fresh and the salad was tasty. There were probably a few too many chips but there was a reasonable mix of fresh and fried food. The service was friendly and prompt. Overall a pleasant dining experience.

My partner and I ventured here for some take away chicken burgers and thickshakes. Our burgers were not very nice and the bread rolls were tiny and seemed to have been soaked in oil. The chips were not edible and the potato scallops were even worse. Our chips and scallops had no salt on them. We paid over $50 for... More
