Stopped in for a cheeky lunch with friends (plus 2 year old) whilst visiting other parts of the wairarapa. Very glad we did! I am a huge halloumi fan and could not get enough of this dish! The texture was perfect and delightfully charred and drizzled with perfect tang. Also we nearly didn't order the crispy lamb which would have... More

We recently dined here for the second time for lunch. We weren't disappointed. We were a large group and left the food up to the staff. The sharing plates were just delicious. Was very nice trying different foods. Amazing flavours and well presented. Service was great too. Hope we get to come back again sometime soon.

Hubby and I turned up at an awkward time when they were between their lunch and dinner menus so were offered a smaller 'in between' menu. But this was actually pretty good with enough variety to chose from...and the drinks/wine list was great. We had a pizza with fries and salad (rocket and parmesan) and the food was great. It's...

Excellent food and atmosphere. Serving staff not overly friendly and helpful gave you the impression they wanted to get you in and out quickly

Charming restaurant - we felt good from the moment we arrived the service was very prompt and friendly. The food a wee bit different and amazing flavours and well presented. The staff were helpful in suggesting what to have and how much to order for our group of eleven people. This was a return visit and we will revisit.

We really enjoyed our stop off for lunch here on the way from Napier to Wellington. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was brilliant. They really looked after us. I would recommend eating here to anyone.

We were looking around for somewhere to have lunch at Greytown. Found Salute on the TA app. I'm not overly keen on tapas food but this food was just divine, freshly cooked, innovative in it's flavouring and a real unexpected treat. Even the garlic bread was wonderful, a pizza type bread with herbs and garlic. My husband loved the lamb... More

Dined one evening at Salute during a visit to Greytown. It has a pleasant ambience and offers seating for dining both indoors or outside in a courtyard. There is an innovative range of entrees, mains and desserts. This establishment excels in the selection of tapas offered. We enjoyed the diverse flavours and nourishing dishes. Staff provided friendly service. The prices... More

Even though Salute's interior looked like Mabel had designed it in 2005 going for the ultra modern look, the food was delicious. The asparagus and the chorizo slaw was bloody good. The lamb and the pork belly, while tasty, could have used more sauce. Decent deserts too. Good effort and could hold its own in the Wellington scene.

We went for lunch at Salute with a couple of friends. Great service, great atmosphere, delicious tapas. It did feel on the expensive side, but wasn't outrageously so. Would definitely go again!
