We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at a Touch of Salt this week. The service was timely, attentive and very courteous. The food was delicious, and serving sizes just right. Menu selection was good also, you could try something unusual or play it safe. Every course was very enjoyable right through to the coffee. Would recommend for people looking for... More

Both entrée and main meal was of a poor quality. The oysters we amongst the worst I have eaten in 30 years and the steak was not much better, Staff are fantastic and all things other than what arrived from the kitchen as of the highest quality. Think twice before you dine

This was a great restaurant with fantastic service. We sat outside near the water which was lovely and quiet. My daughter is a vegetarian and they cater to that with lots of options on the main menu and also with a seperate vegetarian menu. I ordered the pork cutlets which was really good, cooked to perfection and full of flavour.... More

Great vegetarian tasting menu - reasonably priced too. Thanks again for having a separate vegetarian menu, which is actually good! And a vegetarian tasting 6 course menu too, it was very tasty and diverse.

This place is a hidden gem! The staff are very professional and friendly, the food is amazing. If you are looking for somewhere to take your significant other this is the place. I love the fact you can have an intimate dinner or the option to go alfresco outside. I can't speak highly enough about this resturant it deserves all... More
