The wait staff were friendly, professional & helpful. The food was amazing-the slow roasted goat is the best meal i've ever tasted-I absolutely loved it!! I highly recommend Touch Of Salt, we had a memorable night.

I was contacted days before by the restaurant to ask if they could do anything to enhance the special occasion...a first for me. On arrival the greeting was friendly but professional. The service was first class and we never had to go looking for a waiter all night. The food was exceptional any everyone, including family who had travelled from... More

We were pleased with the warm welcome we received and the subsequent service. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. Meals were delivered promptly and enjoyed by both myself and my wife.

We had such high expectations and were so looking forward to our meal here but sadly it just lacked the WOW factor. The decor and atmosphere were lovely and there was little wrong with he food but it just wasn't very exciting it we felt it should have been. I had Sand Crab which really would have been so much...

I've been a few times and the food is usually very good. It is a nice place to dine when it is not busy However it can be noisy and service is not good when busy

We arrived on time for our booking, but another couple had been seated at the table which was supposed to be ours, as a result of which we were seated at a table for four, but the additional settings were not removed. Having waited almost 20 minutes we were eventually asked if we wanted some drinks, we ordered from the... More

Three of us were here for dinner. I had the scallops which were overcooked and tough. I didn't say anything, although I should have. My partner had the prawns which he said were tasty, and our son had the gyozas which he said were not as good as a local Japanese restaurant. My main of crispy skinned salmon was delicious,... More

Upon arrival we were welcomed and felt so comfortable. Escorted to table with friendly dialog about our day and what we had been doing. Seated, water supplied immediately, and menus provided. The service throughout the night was efficient and staff were on hand to ensure all needs were met. The menu seemed to have takes on traditional dishes, but when... More

Delicious food, great wine and fabulous company. What more can you ask for? Although by the river, we went midday and enjoyed air conditioning splendour.....
