We went to Salt for my wifes birthday while we were in Whitianga for the weekend. The staff were really nice and as we got there early we had a cocktail in the bar. The meal was delicious. Not too big portions so we could manage a dessert. Yum. 

Great location with a view, good menu and the food was lovely. Service was great. Great place to meet friends for a few drinkies..... 

We had such an amazing meal at this place in the weekend ! The food was as good as anywhere we ever tried anywhere in the world and we travel lots. The waiter was exceptional in his service and of course the setting is world class ! We thought the food was worth every cent that we paid, just outstanding... 

Great service and very fresh, well presented New Zealand food in a great location. Well worth trying for dinner and enjoying the great wine list.
