Description: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED FROM YOUR LOCAL CONTEMPORARY BISTRO AND CAFE. Full of originality and imagination with execution to match! Delivered in simple relaxed surroundings. Described as an upmarket Bistro style restaurant and cafe during the day, they hope to bring and share an imaginative, contemporary and elegant dining experience to their local beach side suburb of Castor Bay.We are great believers of using quality produce that is in season and sourced locally.

“Excellent local restaurant”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

SALT is open Tuesday thru Sunday for dinner and for Brunch/Lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. we visited with 2 friends for dinner on a Friday. The service was good, the staff pleasant and the food delicious. The restaurant itself is not large and I would imagine that bookings would be advisable for dinner, certainly on Friday and Saturday. We had an enjoyable time.
There's a limited amount of outdoor seating which appeared well used by those enjoying a drink after work.

“All you could wish for on the Shore”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Great food good value, the service could be slightly more professional (it's not bad, maybe just a bit of training) and the decor a little non descript. Make no mistake this is a top rater and as good as most of the top raters in Auckland and Wellington.

“First time”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for a coffee / lunch one day and found it very pleasurable . With some friends we booked dinner. All our meals were very well presented and cooked perfectly. The size of the meals were just on the small side with the cerviche too small for the price.
The service could not be faulted.

“Small restaurant with excellent food”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Salt is a small restaurant with adjoining cafe in Castor Bay on Auckland's North Shore. Food is excellent but pricey for this area of town. The chef was previously at the famous Huka Lodge resort. Booking essential and it is noisy!! Very interesting choice on the menu. Lovely little beach (Castor Bay) close by if you go in daytime.

“Little Local Gem”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Finally we have a local restaurant that serves 5 star food without the 5 star price! We dined here a couple of months ago and the food was fantastic. It's a pretty small restaurant and seems to be busy so you really need to make a booking. The service was excellent and compared to other restaurants offering similar quality meals, this is much more reasonably priced. Will defininitely go there again.
They also have a little cafe next door called Little Salt which does great coffees, lunches and takeaways.
