The decor was bright and modern, there was a relaxed feel and we particularly liked the menu's range of platters. The food was very fresh and we ate there during the day & also in the evening.

Love this coffee shop, fabulous coffee, delicious 'different' food on offer. We had a Sharing Platter followed by their Carrot and Banana cake - delicious.

great atmosphere with really friendly service.

We went for an evening and were really well looked after with lovely wine. We asked for the wonderful rocksalt platter to be split as we had some veggies in party and nothing was too much trouble, even got some special oatcakes for that too.

WIth lovely wine and fabulous cakes and coffee too - what's not to like?

Went into Rock Salt and Snails partly due to hearing it recommended to someone else as we were browsing in a nearby shop.
Our final destination was Braemar and with the benefit of hindsight we would have been better off in Ballater from a general perspective. Seems that the Royals of the same opinion by the warrants in the butchers and outdoor shop. Having said that you're not overwhelmed with places to eat here.
The Rock Salt and Snail ( slightly oddly named and no doubt intentionally) is a pleasant small bistro with a limited but reasonable range of panninis, salads and sandwiches. We had the Rocksalt platter to share which was very good. Food is of good quality and reasonable portion sizes. Prices not a steal but not daylight robbery! Somewhere in between.
