“A great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

It had been a while since we had eaten here so it was great to go back for lunch and find Salute busy and as good as we remembered. We shared Kahawhai and bacalao fritters, falafels and a Morrocan soup. However we couldn't bring ourselves to share the " lemon fritters with pomegranate molasses and ice cream" - this is a long term favorite and has been on the Salute menu for 12 years as regular clientele won't let them take this dessert off the menu!!! So we had our own servings of "lemon fritters" and they were scrumptious. We can recommend a long lunch sharing tapas at Salute.

“Great Tapas and fantastic for vegetarian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

This place has great Western cuisine with a mix of Mediterranean touch. The chef really does the tapas well. Loved the mushroom dish and kumara falafels. Definitely one of the highlight restaurants of our NZ trip. Would love to go back.

“Past reviews did it justice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Most reviewers were impressed with the feel of the place and we were too. It has a nice atmosphere.

We followed others in going for several selection of tapas plates which we shared.

The waiter was helpful and were pleased with the selections.

The peppadews - tiny small chilli stuffed with various items made a nice start but would do little to curb one's hunger.

The bacalau fish fritters with aoil was also very nice.

The roasted garlic mushroom dish was interesting but the quince jam made it sweeter than perhaps it needed to be.

The small onion and anchovy pizza was exactly as you would expect, but we rated the haloumi gnocchi just an okay.

Wine was available by the glass and we enjoyed a glass each.

The bill was NZ$ 84 which was okay given the above, but not sure about the "great value for money" comment in other reviews.

Even so, we would certainly go back but try some different dishes

“Yummmmmmm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

What an enjoyable lunch! Shared breads and dips, greek salad and pumpkin and pistachio falafels. Perfect amount for two girls. Washed down with a great pinot gris. Thought was great value for money and thoroughly enjoyable.
