We booked at Salt for a casual mid week catch up and where blown away by the new degustation menu. After ensuring we had no allergies or special dietary requirements the staff starting bringing out the "surprise" courses. The friendly and helpful staff explained even they don't know until the start of their shift what will be on the daily... More

Best restuarant in New Plymouth!, Top notch fine dining. Whenver I visit family we go here for celebrations and always eat far too much, never any room for dessert but always manage to fit some in!

We had a lovely meal, we had not booked, so arrived on a busy Friday night, but they managed to fit a group of four in. We chose the taster five course meal, which was a set menu, with a option of wine with each course at a extra cost. Very realistically priced, each course was artistically presented and tasted...

This Waterfront Hotel restaurant is located near the coastal walk which offers lovely views of the sea. We went for late dinner and were well attended to by a very lovely lady. We loved everything that we ordered namely the seafood platter, the braised lamb, market fish (blue cod) and the dessert platter. What a lovely way to end our... More

Beautiful location. Service was average and Slow. Food was ok - scallops on platter were amazing but the rest was all right. We thought the Lunch menu was pricey. Were disappointed with this visit.

Hello Lois, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you felt the lunch service was slow. This is something we have been working on, as people only have a small amount of time for lunch usually. We will take the positives and work on the rest. I disagree about the pricing being high , but that's just my opinion.... More

Ate there last night. Our waitress was very professional and helpful. The food was amazing. The pork belly was so tender it melted in your mouth. The eye fillet was sensational and cooked perfectly. Would definitely come back and highly recommend!
