My Friends and I (locals of the Gold Coast) ate at Salt Grill on the weekend, expecting an amazing meal. Although the restaurant looked exceptional (like you were overseas not on the Gold Coast), the main courses were very disappointing and bland. The restaurant seemed more focused more on the branding of Luke Mangan (from advertising his signed cook books, plates, olive oil and salt and pepper shakers), than the taste of the food.
We spent over $700 on the meal and the only items of food we would recommend are side tomato, basil and goat cheese; complimentary bread and petite fours
My friend and I would not return in a hurry. The bar next to the restaurant is very funky/elegant and drinks/cocktails were very good (especially the fish bowl).
We much prefer eating on the Gold Coast at the following establishments:
Restaurant Lurleens Sirromet (Mt Cotton); Cafe Marina (Marina Mirage); Zen Chinese Restaurant ( Jupiters Casino); Taboon Middle Eastern (Robina); Robina Yum Cha; Terraces (Sheraton Mirage) and Ioesco-Cafe Cuncina Bar (Sanctuary Cove) .
