We celebrated a friend's birthday at the Rock Salt. The food was wonderful and the staff went all out to make it a great time for all. Thanks Jesse for singing Happy Birthday.

Perfect if you are waiting for the Fulford ferry or have just gotten off, or if you happen to live on the island just get down there.! The food was fantastic and the service awesome, thanks Jesse! Grab take out coffee and baked goods while waiting for the ferry or indulge in scrumptious full meals if you have a bit... More

My, but did we enjoy our breakfast here! We sat by the window and had a great view of the harbor. Food is made with care and was delicious. Quirky place with nice art. Check out their customer reply wall, some funny gems.

Very nice place at Fulford Harbour. Tasty coffee and really delicious pastries!!! A busy place while ferries are arriving and departing. Friendly staff and a good view on the harbour, so you won't miss your ferry...

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
