I have eaten here on numerous occasions and only because its the only place in town which is not a pub. It has never improved and I constantly wonder why. The food for lunch is not hot except the sandwiches. The owner just does not seem to care at all. Most trade is passing through so no chance to chose... More

This is the best restaurant meal I have had in ages. It is a tapis restaurant, providing lots of variety, very creative combinations (tandoori chick with watermelon), great presentation, and the flavours and taste was incredible. The portions were ample, my husband and I shared 5 dishes and we had plenty to eat. They have an outdoor patio with all... More

Everything about our dining experience here was 11/10. I had the Crab and Pita Pocket - 40% leg rock crab seasoned with cilantro and aioli inside an organic pita with sprouts, tomatoes and peppers - $12.

It took 15 minutes to get glasses of water to our table and then another 45 minutes to get our lunch order. The food was really delicious and the patio is very nice, but the service was unacceptably slow. We weren't in a hurry, but an hour to get lunch?

The patio at the Black salt has some great views and the numerous plants give it a great vibe. Inside is very cozy and has numerous paintings. The service was top shelf,and the infused lemonade and iced tea and sangria's were amazing. The food was also incredible.......cant wait to go back!

Very nice menu with some great selections. The food was very good so where the cocktails and local beer. Service was a bit slow since they were busy with only one server on. Didn't take look for extra help to arrive and then the service got back on track.
