Rocksalt recently moved to only opening for breakfast and lunch but I was able to convince the owner to open of a night time to help me celebrate a special birthday with my partner. We had 32 adults and seven children and we had a mix of dietary constraints including coeliacs and nut allergies. Rocksalt devised a menu with a... More

I met a former colleague at Rock Salt for lunch, the first time I have visited in probably 20 years or so. Gone are the once crisp white table cloths giving way to a more casual atmosphere. I had a prawn dish which was ok but nothing special. The service was ok. Overall a pleasant lunch, but nothing special.

Lovely sitting out in the outdoor area - beautiful vegetarian fritters. Friendly service, easy parking, all in all a good experience

Disappointing selection as at least two of the dishes (mains and desserts) on the menu list were not available and were not replaced by alternative choices. The menu needed adjustment or a board menu provided. We've dined here on a previous occasion which is why we returned but it has clearly gone downhill and not up to its former calibre.

A recent birthday lunch with a group of six friends turned out to be one of the worst meals we have ever had. The other members of the group had recommended the restaurant, having met there for coffee previously and enjoyed it. Clearly the restaurant has gone downhill. While the waitress was lovely and friendly, unfortunately the food was terrible.... More

Dropped in for a coffee and was nicely surprised by the awesome taste! The walk through coffee window make it a fast and welcoming experience!

Great family destination for quality dining in Belconnen. Love lunches and diners there. Great wine range for us, and drawing options for our kids.

I wrote a review earlier in the year after I had had a good birthday lunch but after my experience at lunchtime today I will never return . I booked a table for two and was surprised when I turned up that there was only a table for about 10 people at 1 pm on a Saturday. That is odd... More

My wife and I had breakfast at Rocksalt this morning (Sunday, 9th October) at the Hawker Shops in Canberra. We both ordered a benny. Anne had hers with bacon while mine was with smoked salmon. A couple of coffees started the meal. The coffee was excellent and, even though the place was very busy, arrived at our table within a... More

I’ve been having breakfasts at this café for years, mainly because it is the only café within walking distance of my house and I can sit at an outside table with my dog. The menu and the coffee are decent quality and reasonable value. But there have always been issues with attitude and service and now it has become so... More
