Enjoyed dinner, burger and salads were very good. Service just right. Good to see one craft beer on the drinks list, wines ok too. Would have given them 5 stars but the floor was dirty and needed a sweep.

My wife and I ate an early dinner here one night. The waiter did a great job and was very friendly. The food was about average and the place itself seemed a little more "bar" than "restaurant".

Very friendly staff, their eftpos payment system was down but they kept their cool and were professional and efficient. Food was awesome and great value for money.

We were on a special night out with some friends. The food was fantastic, but the band setting up for the best part of an hour far too loud just ruined the night. Sorry Rocksalt you have lost us as a customer.
