Description: At Saltshaker Café and Restaurant we cater for breakfast/lunch and dinner dining in our restaurant ... .To compliment our offerings, enjoy your meal or drinks on the deck overlooking the bay towards Freycinet and The Hazards.On a calm sunny day, watch the fisherman launch and retrieve their boats - a popular and sometimes a very entertaining experience.On a full moon night, the reflections on the water are stunning.Both the Restaurant and Café are fully licensed so enjoy a selection from our beverage or wine list while you take in the view.If you're planning to enjoy our dining experience, be sure to reserve a table. we have now expanded our deck to take another level, offering seating outside for around 60 people. we also specialise in gourmet and regular pizza's open till late for take aways, or during meal times. If nothing else, be sure to do some "Decktime" at Saltshaker .... you won't be disappointed.

“A pricey fish and chips”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Most food here comes out of a packet of some sort and the smell of fat will hit you on walking in. That might all be ok if we weren't in the heart of eat seafood country and it also might be ok if the food was great but sadly it's pretty average.

“Nice country restaurant”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

There's actually quite a range of restos in Swansea. My wife was on a seafood binge though, so it was here or the take-out up the road.

Salt Shaker turned out to be a happy choice, once we moved to a table at a distance distance from some local Foghorn Leghorn and his equally raucous sister.

She had a salad, I had salt-and-pepper octopus, both of which were generous and tasty. We both had - well, fish and chips, I guess - pink ling in a light tempura batter: delicious. Service is happy and very prompt

No hesitation in recommending recommend Salt Shaker.

“Excellent food and view.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We managed to get a table early which was just as well as it soon filled up. The food was very tasty and well presented and came so promptly we were impressed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Can recommend the Asian beef and the kalamari.
