“Great food, family friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Just back from the beach, Salt Bar & bistro is family friendly with a kids playground (similar to what you'd find at McDonalds). Wide range of options & huge meals. The food is good quality. Just be prepared to line up as it's very popular with locals & tourists.

Shared the hot and cold seafood platter for two. Absolutely delicious and good value. Lovely to sit on the deck and enjoy the view.

“Sunday Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a lovely family dinner here last Sunday and was pleasantly surprised. Four of us ordered the fish special and each plate was completely cleared at the end. The meal proportion was quite large too! Even the platters looked amazing, again what a wonderful family experience.

“Most horrifying experience on kingscliff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Went there for their weekly special as advertised in our hotel. Then we got informed that it is expired and the stuff proudly told us it is not their responsibility for the advertisement in a very snobby way.
We then ordered a steak for medium rare ( and something else). Thn steak turned out to be well done and super dry...

We will never go back again.
