We stumbled on this place while checking out a cool little shop that sold hats, relaxed clothing and jewellery. It is located right at the Fulford ferry. Great food and wonderful view! We had an awesome waitress who was originally from Saskatchewan who was a delight to talk to as well! Prices $$

Went back to the Rock Salt today and enjoyed it again! Whether for takeout goodies or a full sit-down lunch, this is a fun and casual experience. Today I enjoyed fish and chips with a cranberry/soda drink. The lunch came with a ton of fries and the cod was fresh and tasty, the batter not too heavy. Service was friendly... More

My husband and I had some time to kill while we waited for the ferry, so we decided to try this restaurant close by. Because of the location to the ferry, it can be very busy, but the staff will rush your order if you need. We had a drink and ordered the calamari to share. While we where waiting... More

Our first stop upon arriving on the ferry. Couldn't wait to get back for the tuk Tuk chicken ricebowl. It did not disappoint! We enjoyed a seat out on the patio overlooking Fulford Harbour, on such a wonderful sunny day. Our waiter was wonderful...knowledgeable and outgoing. He suggested the 'Black Betty' beer on tap to my husband who really enjoyed... More

We dropped into Rock Salt Restaurant and Cafe not really expecting to order a big lunch, but the choices were so appealing to all the guests in our party, given that we represented a variety of dietary restrictions, that we went for it. The service was excellent, first of all, and the server was happy to accommodate our requests, such... More

I ate here with a party of eight. We came at the busiest time and the restaurant staff were very accommodating. All members of our party were very happy with our meals. I had hibiscus ice tea with a chicken green curry. The curry was incredibly well flavoured and superbly delicious - with lots of attention to detail - like... More

I've been to Rock Salt a number of times over the past few years and it never fails to deliver. Wether it is the Kung Pao, Salt Spring mussels or one of the juicy burgers, the food here is always lovingly prepared, well-cooked and served with a smile. You cannot go wrong eating here.

I picked up my wife at the ferry in Fulford Harbour, decided to stop for breakfast, so glad we did. We were served the most amazing breakfast by the lovely and impressive server, named Prairie. I asked if this was in fact her name and she confirmed. The meal, the server, the harbour combined to make this a most amazing... More

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 :)
