After never eating steak, I am completely converted after having several meals at Black Salt. The staff are always attentive and friendly and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed (especially loving the new addition of a fireplace) with stunning views over the bay. The menu is delicious and full of excellent choices - especially love the scallop entree. But most... More

I was taken here by a work colleague for a quick dinner. What was surprising was the lovely food, the great views and the number of people there on a Monday night. The trout dish I had was lovely.

Although it was bitterly cold outside the restaurant was warm and inviting and the tables were very well presented. Service was good and staff were attentive albeit they were a little overworked. The food was wonderful, it was a fixed menu of five courses and... More

The food here is amazing. Well with the money. We requested a table by the window as it was my partner birthday and the view was beautiful. Both of us had the steak and it was cooked just how we asked. If you are staying at the quality hotel you must eat here!!!!
