Great location on the waterfront. Very good and prompt service. Plenty of space between tables. Good range of food and wines. Prices were reasonable.

The seafood chowder was excellent and ranked with the best my wife and I had ever tasted. As the chowder was a generous serving we only ordered entrees as a main course. The entrees (steamed mussels and scallops with pork), on top of the chowder, were more than sufficient to fill the stomach.

I have dined at this establishment previously and have always found it to be of the utmost high standard. Recently, we bumped into a friend and just wanted a coffee and a warm place to sit. Every coffee shop closed but the Salt Bar and Restaurant had just opened. Even though we only wanted coffees and fries, it was not problem. Friendly quick service and a nice warm room for a chat. Thanks guys, we hadn't seen each other for 10 years but were able to spend half an hour catching up with each other.

The meal was reasonable but overpriced - would expect a slightly more tasty and flavoursome meal for the price.

Fantastic service and food.
I had the Hapuka and my partner eye fillet steak - both above average in presentation and flavour. Finished by sharing Death by Chocolate which was devine.

Quiet, warm, fast service and great food on a Monday night was a great place to start a business week in a picturesque town.
