We all arrived tied and hungry and left in perfect condition for our next adventure! The meal was superb, the Cuisine outstanding and great service and the Children really enjoyed their meals. So if you are visiting Greytown a visit here is recommended

We went through most of the menu of this tapas style restaurant. Food was generally extremely good and owner came out and checked on us himself. Expensive, but worth it. Great wine from both the local area as well as beyond.

We had dinner here and enjoyed a few tapas dishes. There was an accent on middle eastern and perhaps Spanish flavours. Service was prompt and courteous, though it was a quiet mid-week night when we were there, so hard to tell what it would be...More

Recommended by friends, we visited this restaurant during a long weekend in the Wairarapa. We were keen to score Tapas, which are excellent. Lovely dishes, definitely worth a try. Pretty good value for money. Make reservations, they’re busy in weekends.

We visited Salute in July 2017. I believe it was the first night for the new owners. The tapas plates were really tasty. It’s not the cheapest place in town, but the food is worthy of the prices. We will certainly be back next time...More
