We ate at many restaurants while on Salt Spring Island, and Salt by far was the best! Super great friendly staff, a nice varied menu, and both the vegetarian and carnivore in our group we're vary happy both times we ate here. Highly recommend!

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!
