If I get something I am not happy with (which is very rarely) I inform the staff and it is rectified straight away. I can not believe some of the reviews I am reading.....people are so Quick to criticize, but not so... More

Have been here a couple of times for breakfast and both times were extremely disappointing. Overpriced meals for what you get. Service very ordinary and the meals took forever to get and when we did get them they were cold. The positive is that it has an amazing view.

This place is OK. We had breakfast here. We were early and the place was not busy but service was slow and not that great. I think when you pay what seems like full service Prices you should get full service. The food was OK not great and portion size seemed a bit small. The view was very nice across... More

Thank you G O for your review. We are so sorry your service was slow and have investigated with our staff why this happened. Our portion sizes are usually huge, quite often can't be all eaten by some, so I am not sure what happened on your visit. However rest assured we have spoken to everyone about this to ensure...

The view here is lovely, very close to the water. The food on the other hand was average and an item was forgotten from both of our dishes. When we brought this to the waitstaffs attention we barely got an apology. It wasn't cheap either. My favourite thing was the fresh squeezed oj.

Thank you EliB007 for your review and please accept our apologies. We do have a new cook on board with us and this may be the reason why something was missed on your meals, but no excuse that you didn't receive an apology. We are very disappointed to hear about this and have spoken to the waitress concerned. Our prices... More

Only two good things I can say about Salt, firstly the waiting staff were lovely, secondly the fresh orange juice and coffee was great! All down hill from there. People who walked in after us got served ahead of us, after waiting 40 minutes I would have expected a close to perfect breakfast, in stead I had burnt hot cakes... More

Really liked the menu, has a great range of foods. Views from the tables are nice. Meals are average to nice, some portions are very large. Prices are a bit on the steep side for style of dining and food however you do get a big meal. General customer service was below expectation for prices of meals and some staff... More
