Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Experienced the evening buffet on Christmas Day. The food was very average and not a lot of variety for a place that purports to be a quality dining experience. No fresh seafood for Christmas dinner. The wine was very expensive for basic quality wine. Meal...was $89 a head. Cheapest bottle of Chardonnay was $80 and my wife had a bottle of sparkling moscato at $65. Add two beers plus a 15% surcharge for public holidays and it was just shy of $400 for dinner. Staff were very friendly and helpful and this is why it received one star rating.More

We especially enjoyed the 5 course meal with pared wines we had at the restaurant. The food was delicious, the wines were good. We don’t normally drink much white wines, they were ok, however the sparkling wine, the red and the dessert wines, I found,...were really nice. We had two dinner and 2 breakfast meals while staying at the resort. The breakfast buffet is fabulous. The restaurant staff were very friendly. Truly the most friendly staff I have experienced EVER. I would recommend this restaurant.More

2 out of 3 meals were cold, they were the tenderloin and the scotch fillet. The person who asked for the tenderloin was specific about serving the meat hot. It was sent out cold. Then sent back 2 times, last time for cold vegetables. The...tenderloin and scotch fillet were sitting under the lights waiting for them to be served, 10 - 15 minutes before they were served to us. Scotch fillet was also cold. The scotch fillet was ordered to be medium to medium rare, it came out rare. That was different. 3rd meal was Duck, that was served hot and was nice. Sauteed green and Mocktails were nice. To top off the night, we watched one of the people who handles the food in the kitchen. They turned around and took something off their nose, they did not clean there hands afterwards. I guess we were just unlucky and hopefully others did not have the same experience.More

Family of 4, had the dinner buffet ($69 adults, $30 kids). Staff were fantastic, however the food was not good unfortunately. Some dishes were delicious - Wild Mushroom Gnocci and home made ice-cream, however for $198 for a family of 4, I’d at least expect...the food to be ‘good’. It simply wasn’t. The quality wasn’t there for the price. We were planning on going to their ‘award winning breakfast buffet’, but based on dinner buffet, we won’t be going back.More

We were looking forward to this meal having read the reviews. All up the food was not too bad but not enough for the three courses ordered. We left hungry after spending over $200 and won't be back.

Our wedding anniversary celebration dinner at Redsalt, Lovedale. Firstly the waitstaff highly commendable, the food served just as good. The restaurant overlooks the huge swimming pool and children's water contraption? What a great concept. We found the menu excellent and wines a great selection. Meals...were served orderly and were scrumptious, could not fault in anyway. Well recommended. If you are local the restaurant offers locals discount. Thank you, one of our favorite places to eat.

My parter and I were looking forward to our 3 course dinner at Redsalt during our stay last Saturday evening. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. Courses were well presented on the plate, but with every course the sauces were tasteless or unpalatable. Very disappointed.

We had the 5 course degustation dinner paired with wine. The service was good, the food was fantastic. Unfortunately the wines selected were of poor quality, so while the wine itself improved with the matched food, this only lifted the chosen wines to an average...standard. More than half of our wine was returned. My advice if attending Redsalt is to try the degustation menu but avoid the wine pairing and instead chose your own wine to make the experience more enjoyable overall.More
