Salinas is the brain-child of three passionate foodies. Two of the partners are well-known characters on the Garden Route and own the highly-popular Pomodoro’ s restaurant in Wilderness village: Claudio and Werner. The third and managing partner, Massimo Mariotti, brings over 25 years’ experience in food & beverage, hotel management and restauranteering to the table.
Salina’s Beach Restaurant was custom-built, in a sensitive dune area without damaging the protected Milkwood trees, and staying true to the ecological sensitivity of the site. A feat not without its challenges, but a testament to the determination, commitment and passion of the Salina’s trio.
Salina’s has a passenger lift – a bonus for handicapped persons wishing to enjoy the vista of a beautiful sunset over Wilderness Beach.
Although construction only completed towards the end of 2011, Salina’s Beach Restaurant has fully settled into the neighbourhood – and is already recognised as a landmark on the Wilderness shoreline.
