Ironically, the one thing missing from our market fish burger was salt. It was a little bit underwhelming but the chips and rib sauce made up for it. The atmosphere was quiet with very kind/sweet service. Can't really complain too much though as we finished everything on our plates and left very happy.

Holiday Tuesday, time for lunch. There were a few seats inside thankfully out of the sun and wind. It took no time to get the order taken....... BUT ages to get the two dishes served. The pumpkin salad with feta and spinach leaves looked and tasted nice but the bottom of the dish was wet, the falafel burger with haloumi... More

The food at Salt could be so much more. At lunch tome the menu is limited and unimaginative. With a reasonable amount of competition in the area they need to make more of an effort. the Bar is probably what saves them plus outside eating areas.

Best food and service, and kids are very well catered for and made to feel welcome. Visited a few times during my stay, and the quality and quantity of food was outstanding for a reasonable price.

We found the service was good and the the 2 tyes of burgers eaten were very nice, but the ribs, although tasty, needed longer cooking so were a little tough. We enjoyed the chips but a little salad would have been nice to accompany our meals. The serve sizes were generous so quite good value for money.

Excellent place near the beach for a meal. On our recent trip to Dunedin we chose Salt for its home look inside & were not disappointed with it's excellent customer service & generous meals to top it up.The blue cod fish & chips with salad was awesome & so was the big breakfast.Downed with a Emerson London Porter it hit...
