Great Place for a Sunday Brunch!

Been here a few times and the food there just keeps making me to go back. The beef burger looks small but trust me it will fill you up. The thick and juicy pattie had me struggling to finish it. As for the big breakfast, I mean a lot of places do the same thing with it but I must... read more

I visited Salt today with my partner and 2 family members. Two of us had the eggs Benedict one had the mushrooms and the other had the salt breakfast.....everyone of us was completely happy with the food. The service was great and the staff friendly and efficient. The decor is lovely and is a nice warm and inviting dining area.... More

Had my graduation dinner there on Saturday, and want to again thank the lovely Meredith and her colleagues for a wonderful evening. We had actually booked Scotia months ahead but with its closure, Salt was a relatively late replacement. As a restaurant come bar and café, I thought that the evening would be ok but not necessarily great. However, I... More

We had a work dinner at Salt and it was outstanding. The three course meal on offer as a set menu was some of the best food I have ever eaten and atmosphere we created as the night wore on was energetic and upbeat. The staff were great and kept drinks flowing all night. All the food came out hot... More

On our last visit (today) to salt we enjoyed an early afternoon lunch, with the Blue Cod and chips being the first choice for... More

We visit here often, a great place to catch up with friends for brunch, lunch or dinner. A cosy place for Friday night drinks. Friendly and efficient service. Keep it up!

Once again I went out to dinner with my boyfriend. We had the best entree (Karaage chicken) that we've ever had. He then got a beautiful steak and I got the battered blue cod. Both cooked perfectly, and to top it off a delicious banoffee brownie! Amazing food and even great service. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be returning.

We came as a group of 10 to enjoy a birthday brunch. We were lucky to make a last minute booking on the day. A great variety of meals ordered and all looked delightful. The eggs bene which I can never go past was lovely and it was accompanied by a lovely glass of cider. We spent quite some time... More

Walked in this arvo to 3 staff (chatting) and 3 customers. Picked a table and waited for some acknowledgment by staff. After 5 minutes we found a wine list then waited another 10 minutes while 3 staff continued to chat nearby. Not a hello or eye contact let alone the opportunity to place an order. Went next door to Starfish... More

We came here for dinner with the family. The service was fantastic, and our table was by the fire so was nice and warm. Our meals were delicious, we will be back!
