We loved the food and so did our children - who are fussy horrible eaters. Our waiter ran himself silly getting everyone sorted - and it was great value for money. Go go go!!

The food and service was 5/5 - excellent place to have proper fish and chips. Only reason I didn't give a 5 was the window was open and a band started playing outside the window expecting money - I asked a staff member to move...More

Mr TooTrue, Thank you for your honest feedback. We are trying our best to keep the outside band groups away from our customers but unfortunately we cannot be there 24/7. We as owners share your comment - them being a nuisance.

We had the fried hake which was fresh, with a very tasty and light breading. The service was quick and very friendly. The prices were great and the food delicious. Highly recommend stopping for lunch or dinner

This place can get packed with people on a Sunday. Take some time with you when you order and relax. We had some good calamari and the children love the outside area

Good evening Ray, I'm so sorry to learn of your negative food experience at Salty's. Pity you haven't complained to the manager on duty on the day. They have instructions to replace an unsatisfied meal or even allow the customer to speak to the owner...More
