“Wonderful surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

My sleeping 15 month old daughter, wife and I had intended to visit the nearby Ricky's restaurant but could not get a table. Fortunately we stopped in for a meal at Rock Salt. Initial impressions were the decor was a little dated however that was where our criticisms ended. The staff were very warm and inviting and were very attentive though never intrusive throughout our dining experience. The restaurant is BYO but located next to a bottle shop with a good selection of fine wines which gave us a 10% discount as we were dining next door. The food was the absolute highlight with both my wife and I giving high praise to each course we ate. The stand out course was the Morton Bay Bug Ravioli entree which easily stands proud amongst the best dishes served from fine dining restaurants the world over. All menu items were very reasonably priced and the portion sizes were quite generous. Overall we were very happy with our dining experience and would recommend them to everyone

“Hidden treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Off the main drag, hidden away in Quamby Place, Noosa is Rocksalt. What a revelation! Intimate dining al fresco, excellent friendly staff and generous portions of delicious food. Plenty for non meat eaters expertly prepared and served with love. Brilliant.

“Nice dinner, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We ate at Rocksalt last night. There was a small confusion with our booking but was sorted out promptly. Can recommend the duck and the veal, both with a side of mash which is plenty with a shared entree of mushrooms. The servings are generous which is a nice change for a Noosa high end restaurant. The blessing here is the BYO which gives you a bigger choice of wines and no stinging wallet. We did not have desert. Can recommend, for us the setting could be nicer but nonetheless we enjoyed the food and service.
