Always a pleasure

We treat ourselves to dinner or lunch at Salute several times a year (we dont live in the Wairarapa). The food is always top quality and really yummy and the staff are great. Fantastic.

We didn't have any expectations about this restaurant but had only heard the odd nice comment every now and then. When we visited it was a Friday night.So prime time to head out for a meal. We were seated at a very small table for two, ordered a pinot noir only the have the wrong one bought to the table.... More

Great food. Salute have a primarily tapas menu (but pizzas and mains are also available). The food was superb. Each of our 5 tapas plates were great and we could only rank them through comparison with each other! The pork belly with their own dressing was a particular treat - as was the fondue special. Staff were friendly. Don't let... More

The restaurant was full, but we managed to get a couples table in the front corner. The service was efficient and quiet. We imagined the food would taste good, but not this good! The proprtions were perfect, and the flavours were well balanced. We drove here from Palmerston North just to experience the food we had read about in various... More

We visited Salute on a recent weekend in the late afternoon when it was relatively quiet. Right from the start we noticed the first staff person serving us didn't look happy to be there and that we were more of an inconvenience than a customer to be served well. The responses to questions on the menu were very abrupt with... More

Greytown is small. The Wairarapa is sparsely populated. Yet there is a restaurant there that would be considered top end in any big city in the world. Having just enjoyed tapas at Movida in Melbourne, Salute had some competition in my mind. And while it is not Movida, at its best it is great. There are some so-so things on... More

Four of us shared three pizzas for lunch, and a bowl of fries. All food was very good and tasty. Cajun chicken is the best pizza. Very attentive staff and pleasant surroundings.

Have been there for Wednesday Tapas night on several occassions. One cannot fault the quality or service but the noise level can get a bit high which may annoy some people. I felt that the variety of dishes provided had dropped a little relative to the set price per person but all in all its still a great restaurant. Having... More

What a lovely meal! The waiter was attentive, the atmosphere great and the food was sensational. This was our first time dining here and definitely won't be our last. 11/10!
