On our visit to Salute, we found the service to be very good and food was excellent. The cost may of been a little high, due to the size of the portions.

passing through Greytown, we were recommended to go to Salute by a local. What a recommendation! Because we didn't have a booking on a Saturday evening, the front of house lady was a bit uppity with us but condescended to find us a table. From there the service by our waitress was super polite and friendly, likewise the drinks waiter.... More

The staff and management were so friendly and made us so very welcome. The food was delicious, so much so we went back the next evening. We were not disappointed. A great little restaurant and despite the huge crowd the first evening the service and food were brilliant.

Stopped in Greytown on a daytrip out of Wellington. Unexpectedly good selection of shops and restaurants. We chose Salute for lunch. Friendly and efficient service. It was busy so there was a good buzz about it. Nice selection of tapas and other mains. We opted for a salad and a wrap. Both came quickly were well presented and tasted great.... More

We stayed in Greytown for a night on our way to Hawkes Bay, and Salute looked like a high-standard restaurant to have lunch. We found the food of decent quality, but the service very unfriendly. The waitress was uninterested in us when we entered and we had to approach the bar to get menus ourselves, despite the restaurant being fairly... More

One of the best functions I have experienced on new years eve, was last night at Salute. Great company including many people we hadn't previously met, made for a wonderful way to see in the new year . Superb food and bubbles as part of a very inexpensive package all complimented by a fantastic Irish band that kept playing well... More

Had a fantastic meal for two but the restaurant is obviously a gathering place for groups of families and friends. The atmosphere is very relaxed, but the food was all of very high standard, no surprise that it has been nominated for many awards. We worked our way through a range of tasty tapas but there was plenty of choice... More

This tapas style café/restaurant in Greytown Wairarapa is a perennial gem. Food quality remains high. Staff friendly and very professional. Indoor and outdoor areas. Interesting wine list with some excellent non Wairarapa wines as well as good local selection. Well worth a visit.

We were traveling north from Wellington and the when we saw this adorable town and looked over a few menus we landed on Salute. We were immediately seated, and though it was busy, it was not jammed. It took 45 plus minutes for the garlic bread, stuffed grape leaves and my son's Delish but petite burger to arrive. Then nearly... More

The best coffee in greytown, strong and hot. This is place is popular so booking recommended. On a nice day sitting outside under the trees in the courtyard is lovely. Central location, close to the white swan hotel.
