Great location and wonderful eats

Fulford harbours gem! This little restaurant boasts a funky Island feel, with a big city taste. The flavours of our meals were incredibly authentic. I only wish we had time to go back for a second meal.

We went here on the spare of the moment for dinner. I decided to have a burger - something I rarely eat. It was so good with all the trimmings. We sat by a window table with a great view of the water - all the more enjoyable. Friendly and efficient service.

I've waited at many a ferry terminal in my day. I recently visited Salt spring island for the first of many times and stopped in here on the way back. My friend and I both got the raspberry wheat ale (yum!) I got a veggie samosa and he got a burrito. Both were satisfying and we got a seat with... More

Right on water. One good salad & very good pulled pork sandwich. Service a little on slow side but Fulford harbour view makes wait easy. Stained glass panels add punch to décor.

A recent review described this restaurant as "funky" and that pretty well summarizes it. Its setting at Fulford Harbour is quite lovely with good views of the water and surrounding hills. Like most of the Canadian Gulf Islands, Salt Spring Island is a time warp back to the hippie era and the Rock Salt Restaurant fits in with the general... More

I went into this funky Restaurant while waiting to head home to Victoria with my wife. We sat in an ocean view seat and we were welcomed by our server Alex. I had a great gourmet burger with the "soup of the day". What a treat! The Borscht was simply spot on! The burger was delicious and my wife and... More

We got off the ferry and went straight here for breakfast. We entered by the bakery and almost left thinking there was no where left to sit. If you go around the corner it opens up into a nice large dining room with lots of tables. We all enjoyed our meals and the kids menu was great too. Only issue... More

Wasn't sure what to expect and was presently surprised! Great green curry bowl / noodles and the Friday special (Halibut on Sweet Potato) was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Very good chowder too. A very tasty meal. We went back the next night. Highly recommended.

Great location, tasty food, beautiful glasswork as part of the decor. Great option for couples or dinner out with friends but still family friendly too.

My family and I visited Salt Spring for our first time. After arriving off of the ferry we planned on dining at Rock Salt. I was immediately impressed by the atmosphere as you are captivated by its warmth, architectural design and colour. The food was sublime and full of flavor. My husband had the burger and fries which was perfect... More
