The "modern dining" is spot on.

We were a little rushed because our one year old was a little unsettled, but the dining experience here was top class.

We were a little rushed because our one year old was a little unsettled, but the dining experience here was top class. Our mains were roast chicken and slow cooked lamb shoulder - sounds pretty straightforward, but the care in the choice of other components of each dish and in the preparation made both dishes special. Both mains were innovative... More

We dined here for a birthday celebration, and the food was just magnificent. Spot on, modern Australian dining at it's best. We liked it better than Aria! Highly recommend the beef fillet and the lamb, and they have a heavenly chocolate sphere dessert which was such a fantastic foodie experience. You won't be disappointed!

We have just got back to our accomodation after our meal at Rock Salt, from the moment we walked in we had a lovely warm welcome, from the Starter to the Dessert everything including the wine was superb. It was a good atmosphere, we really enjoyed it, this meal will make our stay in the Gold Coast a memorable one,... More

Fantastic service, glasses kept full, and food that is more like art. Probably my favourite place in Broadbeach, highly recommendable. It's wonderful for a special occasion because from the moment you walk in, you're made to feel special, you're so well looked after, and what's served is really excellent. I could go on and on but it would be best... More

Just had the 6 course degustation for dinner that was offered for Valentine's Day. The food tasted terrific but unfortunately there was so little of it that by the end of the dinner I was still hungry to the point that I had to go get some food elsewhere. I would say I eat just a moderate amount of food... More

We had very special friends from South Australia visiting us and wanted to take them to our favourite top food restaurant on the Gold Coast where we have eaten many times over the years and been most impressed.. Firstly we are greeted by a very young Chinese girl to take our order. Not a problem with that other than the... More

Reservations are necessary during peak holiday periods. Welcome on arrival is friendly, and you need to be prepared to be seated at a kerbside table being a casual dining venue. The menu is adequate and entree favourites were sharing serves of oysters, both natural and Kilpatrick. The Kilpatrick were prepared and presented to perfection. Very popular with all the guests...

We went to Rock Salt for lunch and the menu is pretty gourmet. A lot of the items were new / foreign to me. We opted for the share special for 2 people. I was expecting a glorified roast but it was much better than that! The meat was perfect, sliced, tender and juicy. The green beans and potatoes were... More

We like this restaurant as it is a little more intimate than others. Food is good overall although small portions. Would put it in my top 10!

We had NYE dinner at 8pm , which was a set menu, thinking it would be a leisurely dinning experience with no pressure on leaving. The menu was 5 courses and within 20 minutes we had just finished the 3rd course. I had to ask the waitress to give us a bit of a spell for the next 2 courses,... More
