“Glad we found it, food was lush, view was excellent, would recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

I would have expected Salinas to be placed higher in these rankings, we were very pleased we found it. The starters were hearty, I had a steak which was fantastic. Food overall was excellent, service wasn't found wanting, value was great - we paid £21 all in for starters and mains (no drinks). For a casual dining place that's 'nice', this hit the spot. Bearing in mind it's not fine dining or luxury food, it gets a 'very good' rating, although not far from excellent. If you want a hearty meal or good steak in Wilderness, go here every time. We went for dinner and it was busy.

“Restuarant with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

My husband loves this place. The view is stunning. The menu is limited but different that makes it also unique. Love the Tapas. Great place to meet friends for drinks and tapas.

“Recommend it for sure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

What a lovely find! We go to Wilderness often and have our favourite spots. We noticed the stunning building with excellent view from the road and decided to give it a try for sundowners. Sundowners in the end ended nearly at 24h00 that evening! The menu is very Spanish and cost effective with a lovely range of Tapas, good dishes and a variety of fresh fish daily. Good cocktail and wine list too!

“Nice view - very slow service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

The view from Salinas was very nice; however, the service was very slow and the food was average for the price. The slow service doesn't make up for the view. I would avoid Salinas in favor of some of the places in the center of Wilderness you also see on trip Advisor.
