    It was absolutely lovely. Great food, friendly staff. Just fabulous. May be just a bit loud with the tables close to each other but that's minor.

    It was perfect. This was my second time visiting Salut! . The restaurant is just superb. It small, but thats definitely a plus. You can see the cook cook his food with passion. And everything is so tasty. Also the presentation of the food is, as we would say nowadays, instagram worthy. I live all the way in the south but travel 55min anytime to have dinner at Salut!

    Good dinner - with some dishes better (ox cheek) than others (mackerel) - and nice atmosphere
    Service was attentive but could have been more professional (didn't serve the ladies first, didn't place the cutlery correctly, didn't get us to taste the wine before serving it...) - nothing terrible, but worth improving

    Amazing restaurant. Starter was gorgeous to look at and the best beetroot I've had! Main of bass with squid ink was elegant and substantial at the same time. Flavours here are bold combinations that work fantastically. Plates are a work of art but don't feel over produced. The atmosphere here is brilliant too, with an open kitchen and friendly chefs grafting away.

    You have to look at the food then look again at the price to make sure you're not reading it wrong. The prices, hovering just above gastro pub prices, are ridiculous. For how intimidatingly professional the plates are, how artfully presented, and the quality of ingredients, they could charge a third again on top of these prices. They would not look out of place at The Berkeley - seriously.

    On top of all of this swankiness, all staff were brilliant - really friendly and informal which added to the whole layout there.

    Stop reading this now and just go and book a table there.

    Nice ambience but overpriced for what it is , good potion size not too big but some dishes lacking seasoning a bit

  • ((((( 16 April 2017 by Ian Newth from London

    Food excellent.
    Service a little slow at first, as the restaurant seemed to fill in around 10 minutes (we had an early booking at 18.45) - but overall very good.
    Slight hiccough with payment system on leaving - we waited 15 minutes to pay the bill. Perhaps they should have offered a drink as compensation.
    They do give you 2 hours per sitting, which is just about enough if you have 3 courses.
