Hello Melissa,

Thank you for your beautiful review of Salt House and our fabulous location on the Marina. We love our dessert platter too and it is great for sharing especially when all the desserts are gluten free. We look forward to welcoming you back to Salt House.

After disembarking the Paul Gauguin Cruise ship in Cairns, Aus, and checking into our hotel, we decided to hunt for a local restaurant for a late lunch. We walked along the marina boardwalk to the end, and ran into the Salt House. We choose to eat outside in the bar area because the day was nice and the setting was relaxing. We looked at the menu and discovered the lunch menu was pricey. However, the were offering a two for one special, so we ordered fish and chips and a grilled chicken sandwich with fries. We each had a beer with lunch. At the bar there is no delivery of the dishes and we had to pick them up at the kitchen window. There were not many diners at the bar or inside the restaurant. The food took about 20 minutes to be ready. About the same time for my Guiness in a can to be delivered. The fish was good, and the grilled chicken sandwich was very average. The fries were average. There was no offering of condiments with the dishes. The final price was about $35 US. I thought that at full price the meals would be ridiculous, and even at the 2 for 1 price it was still over priced. I would not go back to this restaurant due to marginal service and over priced food entrees.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, it is unfortunate that you feel our specials are overpriced as we have customers who come here regularly to enjoy the special discount they receive on our beautiful food. As we serve everything fresh here, 20 minutes is an good time to receive three main meals in as the chicken, and fish options are. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Cairns.

This has to be one of the trendiest places in Cairns. Live music, 3 bars and an amazing restaurant. The view of the marina is stunning. A definite 'must visit' whilst in Cairns.

This is a popular drinking hole and restaurant. We had a table inside which I thought better than outside as it was a little noisy out there. Had a perfectly cooked sirloin, mojito, creme brulee and good time. Be prepared to enjoy yourself if you do go here.
