Came here in September 2023- was good. Went again today-very disappointing. Could have accepted the oily calamari, but undercooked fish, borderline fresh/old fish served to pregnant customer…need I say more. Unfortunately not keeping up the previously high standards.

Was very disappointed. They let me bring my small dog with and we sat on the terracce outside. It was early evening and the restaurant was not busy at all. It was very hot and I asked out waitress for a small bowl with some...water for our dog. She responded with a blunt “no” !! If you do not even want to offer water to dogs then change your dog policy ! I will not be backMore

Our starters were exceptional and tasted like we should order more, but we restrained ourselves! The kingklip and calamari was delicious and I always appreciate the side of vegetables served here, you just don’t get anything like it at other restaurants. You’d need a reservation...or expect to be disappointed.More

PROS Central, easily accessible, and ample parking across the street. A large variety to choose from on the menu. Adequate and proper seating. We did enjoy the fresh vegetables served with one of the dishes we ordered. The food was good but not exceptional. CONS...Menu not easy on the eyes-especially when you're not that young anymore. In certain sections, tables are very close to each other. Listening to someone else's life- stories next to you all evening doesn't make for a relaxed evening out with your partner.More

Saltwater grill serves great seafood and their sushi is top notch but sadly their service is lacking. We have on more than one occassion visited this restuarant and waited ages to be offered something to drink and even longer to order food.

Excellent food and extremely well presented. It's not cheap but it's still very good value for money. Service was very good and staff and management very pleasant. The prawns were excellent as was the line fish of the day. Both cooked to perfection. The owner...small complaint is something out of the control of the restaurant but it was an idiot revving his motor bike across the road. It could be noisy because of traffic.More

We visited this restaurant recently and had a very pleasant meal indeed. The service was excellent and the choice of wines good. Better still, we could not get an Uber taxi home so a member of staff gave us a lift back.

My husband ordered the baby kingklip and calamari. He said it was astoundingly good. It was especially good to have delicious vegetables on the menu as a side dish. I enjoyed their menu and would like to return to keep trying a different meal every...time. Booking ahead is probably wise.More

I visit SWG at least once a month. Food is fresh and excellent. Service is good. All good. Worth a visit! Maybe just have a chat with Checkers and ask that the motorcycles drive past Pick and Pay as the noise "distracts" when you sit...outside.More

At the door, we were greeted by Carol. What can I say? This lady needs a badge for top-notch service. I phoned, booked and took my daughter there for her birthday. Carol checked in whenever she thought at exactly the right time. We were introduced...to all the fish and sizes before ordering. I would not call this an expensive restaurant. My daughter and my friend shared a platter for 2 that could feed 4. I eat lots, enjoy food and could not even finish my hake and did not touch the chips. The salad must have been one of the highlights as it was beautifully presented. They knew it was my daughter's birthday and she got a pannacotta for free. Thank you, Ryan, and Carol for your EXCELLENT service. We will be back!More

We use to be regular customers of Salt Restaurant in Durbanville and after the last 2 bad experiences we have decided not to go back. The fish were covered with half a plate of rice and the chips tasted oily and was a oily brownish...colour. I had prawns and was not offered any wet wipes. I had to use my own wipes from my handbag. What a disappointment!More

2 Thumbs up for Saltwater Grill Durbanville The experience was top-notch. The food, the service - absolutely the very best. And to see the owner's interaction with his staff and clients -WOW!
