Plethora of options on the menu, good wine selection. Generous portion sizes with the option of a take home doggy bag. Friendly staff and average prices. The takeaway pizzas are delicious too! Thank you

My family and I have visited Salinas many times over the past 7 or so years and have always had an enjoyable dining experience. The host and waitresses are attentive and very welcoming. I like the choice of small, more intimate dining areas or outside under fairylights .The menu is Italian and frequently changes to allow for seasonal produce. They... More

We were staying at Caves Beach and this place was recommended. Excellent call. A great selection of Italian classics. Plenty of top shelf seafood. My only quibble is the size of the serves. Unless you are starving, stick to the entree sizes. Friendly staff, prompt service and tasty food. Happy to recommend it.

We had a wonderful dinner here with friends. Their fish special was very nice and pizzas are fantastic as well. The dessert special, made with figs was divine, yummmmm.

Food average......very expensive and always the same! Menu has not changed much since Salinas opened some 20 years ago! Yes...there is a Chefs special board....but a restaurant charging these prices should not be resting on its laurels!.....Unfortunately not much competition in the area!

There's dining space out the back of the restaurant which had great ambience, and they gave us bug spray. Seems like a close, family run business. The food was pretty normal/average tasting but the staff were so friendly, helpful and patient.

We rarely get a night away from the kids and wanted to make the most of tonight's child-free dining opportunity. We're so glad we chose Salina's, based on previous reviews. The food, service and attention to detail was splendid. The ingredients were high quality and the owner was attentive but not intrusive. We will be back.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Salina this week. Our meals were delicious and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend the sword fish with baby spinish, feta and pomegranate salad. Even though the restaurant was very busy the service was faultless. The atmosphere was great. This restaurant has never been opened for lunch. As per its website it is opened... More
