If you are looking for a restraint to impress your guests with fine dining, then A touch Of Salt is the place to spoil them. A menu with a lot of variety and top table service will ensure that you will experience a night out to remember.

Lovely food, nice atmosphere. Reasonably priced, service a little slow, but it was a busy night. No rush was pushed at us to move along even though it was getting late. Would return again.
