“Great food in a prime location”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

The food here was fresh and really well prepared. Veggies were a bit short but they happily gave us more on request. We were there at night but you can see that the sea-views in the daytime must be spectacular.

“Beauuuuuutiful!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We visited this superbly well positioned restaurant for an evening meal. The view was great for sun downers but must be magnificent during the day. Beautiful deck was well done and a great pub at the top of the building was the source of a lot of fun.

Food was fantastic when we were there. Massimo, the owner, likes to get the catch of the day and well worth going with the special of the day - we did not go wrong. Deserts were also excellent.

“Great seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

This offers great value for money considering its fantastic location overlooking the vast stretch of Wilderness beach. Fish was extremely fresh and there was a lot to choose from as well as various meat options (the rib portion was very generous!) In my opinion Salinas would benefit from an interior refurbishment as the beige tilled floor and furniture felt as though I was eating in a rather bland modern apartment that had been converted into a restaurant. Service was great and helpful regarding recommendations.

“Great Sea a Food Beautiful view..”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

It's my first trip on the garden route, a spur of a moment decision to stop over for a bite and what a right decision it has been. The food is so fresh you can even smell the sea in it. The staff very cordial and warm, I would think in summer the deck would be beautiful as it is winter now. Do stop buy you will get your money's worth.

“My Favourite Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The winter weather favour meat dishes, but at Salinas, the fish is still my favourite. Just ask your waitron or Massimo, the owner, what they suggest. Irrespective of your choice, the fish will be firm, fresh and served with thick potato wedges and veggies to delight a discerning palate. The carefully selected wines gives a quality choice to compliment a relaxing and tasteful gourmet experience. Not cheap, but if you expect a quality meal with a quality view, Salinas is worth a try!
