The only restaurant on Christchurch’s New Brighton Pier!

Occupying an enviable spot looking out towards the Pacific Ocean, Salt on the Pier offers the perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner for two or a catch up with friends and colleagues. Dine inside, or enjoy waterfront views on the cosy outdoor deck.

On the menu, there’s tasty entrées like warm bread and dips, a classic garlic loaf and creamy seafood chowder. For your main course, tuck into Akaroa salmon with potatoes and wilted spinach or opt for the bounty of the sea and enjoy a plate of seafood served with bread and dips. Meat lovers should try the BBQ New Zealand pork ribs, the slow cooked pork belly or the delicious chicken roulade. A number of dishes are available gluten and/or dairy free.

This varied menu offers something for everyone; note that the dishes may change seasonally, so ask your friendly wait staff for this season’s most popular options.
