Salina's is situated on Wilderness main beach - lovely sea and mountain views. It is a relaxed spot and stunning for slowly seeing the sun set - sipping a chilled class of wine or a cocktail. The seafood is very good and the curries exceptional. My son had a great steak as well...

We were walking on the beach and decided to stop for a drink. We decided also to go for the tapas plater which was very good. The service was good and quick

Our host at Oceans Wilderness suggested Salinas and made a reservation for us - they get busy so it's best to. Having read some of the negative reviews we were pleasantly surprised and went back a second night. Friendly staff and minimal waiting time despite them being full. I would skip the "curry" selection as it wasn't authentic, however the... More

We visit Wilderness often and Salinas is one of our favourite places to eat.Staff are always friendly and Massimo is always welcoming and easy to pick up the conversation where you left it last time. Food is always top notch and is highly rated no matter what you order. Scenery is an added bonus

Our host at Cinnamon guestlodge recommended at made the booking for us as it it said it is the best seafood in the garden route. The food was good, but they lacked in service, which is a pity in such a beautiful location, maybe they just had an off day.

I visited the restaurant for dinner, just as the sun was setting - it was a last minute decision so I didn't have reservations, but luckily they weren't full. It was so beautiful, with the beach as a background. I had the pork neck steak (if I remember correctly), and it was delicious! The service was great too.

Kerala vegetable curry was super tasty. Better than the seafood and that was amazing! So many options for seating where you can enjoy the food and even a pirate ship outside for the kids.

Situated at the Touw's river mouth in the Wilderness, facing west with sea and lagoon views serving island style cuisine. Sunsets on the upper deck with a cocktail, add a whole new dimension to the end of a beautiful day and start of a great evening.
