If you are looking for a place to enjoy a casual lunch in kiama look no further than here. Food is fresh and delish and coffee was not too bad either was a perfect stop while in Kiama.

The food here is ok but it is a bit pricey and they slug you even further for public holidays which would be ok except they are already expensive enough for a fish and chip place. Staff are nice and deserts and coffee of a high quality.

stopped for brunch and ordered coffee and food. Coffee ok food ok the dark colours on the furniture and building gives it an old and tired look unfortunately. It's located in the main strip with all the other coffee shops.Service ok but still only your just average shopping centre cafe.

Morning couples breakfast out after dropping the daughter at school. Scrambled eggs on toast with bacon and gourmet eggs roll. Great little spot, quiet on a Friday morning. Great service. Meals a little amateur in quality but overall a comfy and nice place. Egg rating = Dang.

Wonderful seafood chowder at a reasonable price. The takeaway fish and chips is probably the best around(at its price)

We were in Kiama for a day visit from Sydney and decided to have a late lunch/ early dinner of seafood and just happened upon Saltwater. We decided to share the seafood chest for two, which was very substantial. The seafood was nicely cooked, lots of fresh salad plus lots of proper chips! The only thing we could make a... More

Eat here frequently. Always very good and lovely service too. I usually get the fish and chips and find it very light and consistent. Staff always friendly and of course the beautiful park across the street to eat your meal at.
