Best Prime Rib I have ever had. The service and atmosphere was really quite pleasant but that meal was just a bit of Heaven.

We hate to leave Salt Spring and go home, but Rock Salt lamb burgers are a big help. We park in the ferry line up and walk over for lunch or dinner, depending on the time of our departure. Not quite regulars yet, but we've dropped by three times this year .

Whether grabbing a quick bite or languidly dining at the seaside, Rock Salt never disappoints. Great desserts, big and varied menu, and a staff that's always friendly and efficient. Pretty cute Chef too!

Excellent food and service, Mussels were plentiful with an amazing broth, and the green curry rice bowl is hearty and full of homemade flavour. Saltspring is overpriced in general for dining, but this place is 100% the best value for real food.

Hi Graham, and thanks for the kind words! We do sell a LOT of mussels, in fact this summer they were the number one selling item on the regular menu. This keeps them fresh and we get pretty good at cooking them! All of our sauces are indeed homemade, and you can really taste this in the clean flavour of... More
