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!

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
