“Just OK”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Been here a number of times, Wednesday night is Quiz night do not go it is so noisey, but if you like quiz nights its ok, staff are friendly, service good, food just average.
Too much fried food, Stone grills are small and well over priced, hamburger a chips are expensive and not great.....a bowl of fries is $6.50 many get these as other things are too expensive for what they are, City prices here, needs to be cleaned more cafe is dusty but worth a one time stop Downtown to New Lynn bus service good.

“New Lynn Treasure”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Have been lately for both lunch and dinner. Staff are young, attentive and friendly. Some meals are huge whereas the stone grills can be a bit on the small size and not suited for a man size appetite but enough for me.I bit of class in a some what dreary end of town, although I see the council is trying to "beautify the area". Prices are middle of the range, but I dont mind paying a little bit more for the attention and cleanliness of the meals.Nice place to take people to impress them .

“Very Nice Meals for a Bar”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

I have eaten here a few times both for lunch and dinner & always enjoyed the meals. the service is pleasant and the meals are tasty. It can be a little bit nosiy from the bar area in the evening, Nice outside area, It would probably appeal more to the younger diner visitor, they do a range of Tapas as well for a light meal. No range of sherries to go with it though. Not cheap, but by NZ standars not too expensive though.

“Great Stonegrill Place”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

My partner and I went with some of his family to Black Salt on a Thursday evening and it was very nice.

The bar decor is very cool and welcoming and the staff were friendly. Stone grill is the theme of the food here, and they had a large selection of options from seafood to the usual beef all available for stone grill.

Overall a nice place and we'd probably go back if we were in the area, but not really special enough to warrant a trip across town to visit. It does enough to be nice, but not really any more to be considered memorable.
