Fodor's Review

Put a slightly upmarket yet still casual restaurant in a popular local hotel, with a waterside location in a holiday town, and you've got Salt, a can't-miss dining spot. There is more casual restaurant dining in the hotel's bars, but Salt is the star. The table-studded, tiered deck reaches all the way down to the palm-edged marina. The menu changes with the seasons, sometimes offering free-range pork belly with prawn dumplings, lamb backstrap, or grass-fed eye fillet with béarnaise sauce. Bar snacks include lots of fresh seafood such as Coromandel mussels. During the summer make reservations.
