We had 2 dinners at Salinas which was new to us after our previous visit to Wilderness some years ago. Salinas is right at the beach with large parking. You can be seated inside or outside as You please. Our 2nd dinner was a highlight with such good and enthousiastic service of waiter Machiel. Very much focussed in customer service... More

This place is right on the beach in Wilderness - try and get a table upstairs on the balcony so you can look out. I've eaten here twice now and the service was great both times. On our first visit they managed to find us a table even though they were fully booked and once they learned it was my... More

Great spot for the family at lunchtime. Good food. Waiters were a bit impersonal but we were served quickly and we didnt have to wait long for our food. One of the best burgers I have tasted in a while. Will definitely try their ribs next time. They are in the process of extending their outside deck area and building... More

We went there for dinner one evening prompted by the great reviews. The location right on the beach is just lovely for a romantic dinner. Food and service were so and so: i had a lovely fish curry but my partner had a burger that had seen better days. We also felt a bit pushed by the waiter to order... More

We had an early dinner at this restaurant in Wilderness. The standard of food and service was excellent and our terrace table with beach views made the whole experience a memorable one.

Stunning views from upper deck. The food was nice but I wasn't convinced that the fish was fresh. It tasted as if it had been frozen. Slightly disappointed but the views service and wine made up for it.

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.
