Mid week brunch for 3. We arrived just on opening and the welcome was warm and inviting. Between the three of us we ordered 2x eggs Benedict and a mushrooms with 2x coffee and hot chocolate. The 16 year old food critic in our group was impressed by the hollandaise - he's had some disappointments in the past. He wasn't... More

The squid and pork steamed buns (starters) were superb and the menu had lots of options! The serving size of the ribs was huge (my uncle, a big man, had the 500g option which is... More

After celebrating my dad's 70th on the Saturday night a few of us came to Salt for breakfast. We were well looked after by the staff and had a great feed to help the hangovers. Staff were brilliant with our large group of family and friends

Visiting Dunedin for the long weekend and arrived here for brunch on the Monday public holiday. A popular sport which was very busy. We had no problem getting a table though and the service was very good. A great menu with much to choose from the Salt Breakfast was spot on and the salt and pepper squid with sweet chilli... More

Large group of us dined at Salt.We all had a pleasant time.Staff were courteous , attentive & obliging. Meals were tasty but sadly lacking in quantity of vegetables. In this day & age we are encouraged to have 5plus a day so it should come with the meal & not have to order it as an extra or side dish.

My wife and I ate here after meeting some of the other Autumn Colours car rally participants for drinks here. I had the leek and potato soup starter (rather average), the steak for main course (delicious and nicely-cooked) and a rather odd version of Eton Mess for dessert. My wife had the venison and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hearty southern portions... More
