Fabulous birthday meal!

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!

Perhaps one of the best Wairarapa restaurants. Set on the Main Street in Greytown, it is unmissable. When open in summer there will be diners sitting under the trees next door or on the verandah at front. Salute is one of those places a small town is very lucky to have. Since the end of the Campbell's French restaurant in... More

We had a beautiful meal here, and lovely staff. They even noticed when one of our group didn't enjoy their wine and quickly sought to rectify it. The food was amazing and we all had clean plates - worth the expensive price tag

went for dinner on the spur of the moment and we were highly delighted with the service and food. Garlic bread with a twist to start - very tasty and not over-powering, then I had the steak - perfectly cooked medium rare with tasty sauce and veg. I would certainly not hesitate to order it again! For dessert we both... More

Very happy with the wide choice of gluten free options and the fact they were happy to alter dishes to remove components if it was able to be changed to a gluten free meal by omitting part of the dish. Great customer service. The food was lovely and excellent presentation. As we were eating out with our 5 year old... More

We had two meals here on a recent visit to Greytown. Both meals were excellent. We had pizza one evening and the burger the second time. The burger was on the lunch menu only but they were happy to accommodate us and let us order it for dinner. It was great - brioche buns. One of the best burgers we've... More

We chose Salute for lunch because TripAdvisor listed them as #1. I definitely agree. I had the best arancini balls I've ever had - EVER - in this lifetime and the next. I chose the pulled pork arancini balls and a green salad with parmesan and balsamic (quite big). My son had the gourmet beef burger and my husband had... More

We visited Salute on a busy Saturday night, quite a few groups. Dean was our waiter and he did an outstanding job: professional and entertaining. We started with the ras el hanout chicken wings with buttermilk tzaziki and crispy pork belly with pomegranate, chili, lime dressing. Both tasting authentic Mediterranian. Our mains were the same: Hereford rib eye with cauliflower... More

Salute has a reputation for fine food in the Wairarapa, but don't believe what you hear - go try it!! You won't be disappointed. The Staff are friendly, polite and provide "service with a smile". The presentation of the food is top Restaurant quality and the flavor experience to die for. A must visit, for a coffee, snack or meal... More

The food is incredible, the selection outstanding. They offer great food at (not cheap) but ok prices. The pork belly is to die for, and the arancini is so soft and unctuous that you want more. Even the bread and dips are special. It is an all time favourite for all of us - four year old included.
