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

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.

I've never had a bad experience at Rocksalt but there have over the years been some issues. Upping the standard of food, service and atmosphere obviously must be a never ending challenge in a town where your staff are always eyeing off the fabled "Island job" where ther seems to be a money tree, but Rocksalt persists and at present...

Good food, extensive menu, very nice Tapas platters, fairly good value for money, service at times can be average, but probably because of high turnover of staff in Gladstone.

Such a nice place to eat, the food is to die for, the service is fantastic, the only downside is it is a little pricey but in saying that you are paying for quality food, as it's a beautiful meal. We regularly eat there despite the cost.

Delicious food but you may not get a table cloth if you dine at lunch time. Camping tables when paying $30/dish is a bit average.
