    It was all okay, good food, drinkable wine, but not worth the price.

    Everything about Salut is amazing. The food super tasty. The service is fast and friendly. The alcohol is well chosen and fairly priced. The atmosphere is relaxed.....etc. You absolutely have to go visit, and I hope Lockdown 2.0 doesnt cause them too much of a problem :( Looking forward to coming back already! P.s. During Covid I would suggest that you either fill water from a central jug and don't leave it on the table, or put it on the table and don't touch it. Doing both feels unnecessary, so maybe just ask customers what they would prefer.

    The food was fantastic, as it always is. The wine list is a little steep. We'll definitely go back.

    Buzzy, cosy restaurant. My seat was in full view of the open kitchen prep, which was as enjoyable as watching an episode of Master Chef. I would request the same seat again. Food is bright, modern, delicious. Lean menu offering a small amount of choice but wide flavour variation, which is clever and which I applaud, being a sustainability expert. Mains included vegetarian, 2 fish, 2 meat, and a lot of variety on starters. Excellent mains and a superb dessert. As its about a 10 minute walk I will be returning. The only downside is that the restaurant is all hard surfaces, so its quite noisy, but it is tiny so it didn't overwhelm as a larger venue might have. Please note I've recommended it for lunch but I don't know if that service is currently offered.

    We‘ve lived less than 10 minutes away from Salut for a few years but this was our first visit and we quickly regretted not eating there sooner. The staff were attentive and thoughtful, the atmosphere was lively and the food was exceptional. The beef short rib in particular was outstanding. Rich, tender and absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning soon.
