We visited Salute in July 2017. I believe it was the first night for the new owners. The tapas plates were really tasty. It’s not the cheapest place in town, but the food is worthy of the prices. We will certainly be back next time...More

After all day cycling the Rimataka incline we relaxed at Salute for an evening of tapas. Great atmosphere in a gorgeous indoor outdoor setting. Best tapas included beef cheeks, duck risotto and Moroccan lamb. Definitely worth going.
