Nice Breakfast

Gladstone doesn't have a lot to offer in the way of Cafe culture or breakfast options (outside of McDonalds or the Coffee Club) however Rocksalt is definitely worth a shot. Enjoyed a lovely omlette with ham, mushroom and caramelized onion. And the Cafe Latte was good enough to pass the taste test... read more

Whether it's an afternoon coffee, a healthy breakfast, tapas for lunch or a delicious dinner, Rocksalt covers it all. It's one of the more expensive restaurants in town, but you get the quality you pay for and it's still within reason for today's prices. The staff are lovely, and always take the time to have a chat as is the... More

Lovely food, good value. Service was excellent. Slightly crowded though, not really the atmosphere for a first date.

For a special outing can't go past their meal packages ie entree /main, main/dessert, you will leave happy and satisfied.

Went there for a week day dinner with colleagues. Nice warm and windy night (we were on the terrace and salad leaves were flying around :-)...). Depending on where you sit, view over the bay can be quite nice. Food was really good (not fully impressed by the South African spiced lamb - lamb was good and well coked, but... More

I expected quite a lot from this restaurant after reading several previous reviews but the experience did not live up to expectations. From the instant we arrived the excessive noise made the experience really unpleasant and there weren't even many customers to account for the noise. Obviously an acoustic problem that needs to be addressed. We asked to be seated... More

As a family we are here for both dinner and breakfast the following morning, so can't be bad ! Service was good, but our dinner took close to 50 mins to arrive, a bit on the slow side I feel. Given the place was full on a Monday night I guess that's a good sign though. The Barramundi was excellent... More

This is a good place for a large party but not for a romantic meal. The tapas were quite good, but the rest of our meal was quite ordinary. I prefer Scotties or Ribs and Rumps.

Located centrally within the CBD of Gladstone, this little place is a gem. They have won many awards for their variety of food, quality, presentation, and service. This place would match or rival places I've eaten in Sydney, London or Hong Kong.Don't stay in Gladstone without trying.
