We were in line for the ferry and didn't have a lot of time to spare. Because the restaurant is right beside the ferry, they understand that speed is important. Had smoked salmon eggs benny. The best Hollandaise sauce EVER! We made the ferry :)

Salad was very fresh and dressed beautifully. Seafood was lovely and caught in the area, paired with local wines what can I say...

My husband and I came here and had lunch while we were driving around. It was fantastic! We had come here about 7 years ago, when we first were living together, and were delighted it was still there. Food was fantastic, and so was the service!

We had our first meal at Rock Salt on our honeymoon and enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much that we brought our friends back for our one year anniversary trip to Salt Spring. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the food, the view and the great service. We loved the fun local beers as well. Keep up the good work!

From the outside it just looks like a funky fun place but the view from the outdoor dining room is spectacular and the food was so much better than expected. Calamari was in the lightest batter I've every encountered, curries were very well done and service was quite efficient. The place is a GREAT find!

The Rock Salt Restaurant is so understated that we passed it by our first day on Salt Spring Island thinking it was just a take out bakery style café. However, after taking a look at its menu in a binder of restaurant information at our B&B, we were impressed with the variety and decided to make the drive from Mount... More

The food is pretty tasty. My husband really enjoyed his meal. My meal was pretty good. My only complaint was there was a lot of salt on my yam fries. I loved the fact that there was really chicken on my club, not deli meat turkey. The size of our meals where pretty generous too. The service was pretty good... More

The food is excellent, organic and generous portions. We often call in and pick up to eat at home but the location to eat there is beautiful. Highly recommend!
