Salt Restaurant – Kalk Bay

Newly opened Salt – Kalk Bay has the Cape Town foodie scene abuzz and it’s for all the right reasons. Owner and chef Nic Macloed manages to source the freshest ingredients and serve’s it in the best possible way.


With chalkboard menus and café styled seating the Restaurant is sure to soon be the hip and happening spot on the Kalk Bay Strip. Nic is very clear in is concept and what he is trying to achieve with his small plates.

We arrived for an early dinner just as they bought a yellowtail off the boats at Kalk Bay harbour, fresher you will not find. 

We ordered an array of small plates and everything was yummy and fresh and the coffee was really good too.
