A great dining experience. From the moment you enter the staff are warm, friendly and attentive. Fabulous tasty food. The pork belly is the best we've eaten.

Return visit to Salute after an excellent meal there the last time we stayed in Greytown & were very happy that we went back. Fantastic service, food & wine. The place was packed too. This was on a Saturday night, and we only made a booking earlier that day. Did need to book for 8.15 which suited us fine, clearly... More

Great service, great food and also a very nice ambience. Salute has an interesting menu which is not expensive, I found two entrees were plenty for dinner. The service was super.

Went in a group of four for dinner. The other three got the same - fish main - $34 and rocket salad side $8. They enjoyed it but I personally didn't think that it was good value for what it was. I got the crispy lamb tapas $18 and warm pumpkin salad tapas $15 which was tasty and a reasonable... More

Travis back in the kitchen and the meal lived up to expectations. The duck Bastilla was superb - and just enough. simple presentation and very tasty. Great service - as usual and then my standard, the not to be missed lemon fritters - they are to die for! Good value meal too. We went along with a friend this time... More

Friday lunch was special and the food wonderful. I had been to Salute before during the week and was not too enthusiastic with my choice of tapas. So this was second time around and chose the Friday lunch 'special' which is two courses for $35 which included a glass of wine. I was very impressed, the selection was good. I... More

Had a light lunch here. Flatbread & dips; grilled halloumi; Pamplona chorizo. Chorizo was not hot but served with fetta, leaves, grilled peppers and rich beefheart tomatoes. Washed down with a nice chardonnay. All dishes excellent.

I like Greytown, but it has a weird artificially with mobs of puffy jacket wearing Wellingtonians (me included) coming over the hill to buy gift wares. This means that the food can be a little hit or miss. This time I wanted to make sure that we had a decent lunch, so headed straight for Salute. I'm glad we did... More

Visited twice for lunch, never disappointing. The food is awesome, salad is nice, pizza is well cooked. I love the pizza with pear on it, I'm drooling when writing this. Friendly service, good ambience. Will surely return for dinner one day.
