This place is awesome, really nice atmosphere, great venue, and fantastic food.. however it is rare I have come across more rude staff who could have not cared less. I still highly recommend if you can put up with a general feeling of "who gives a crap" from The staff. I still rate this venue .. as being excellent ..... More

The only great thing about this restaurant was the location-which was perfect. Great views and a good setup. But the food was only okay. Well presented-but bland. And the service was especially bad. There were plenty of waiters-but none of them seemed to be paying attention. We had to ask for several things more than once-and it took forever because... More

We assumed because the prices were a bit on the expensive side, then the servings would be small- this was not the case! My partner got the beef ribs and I had the sirloin steak with the largest...

Used to be a favourite spot but recent visits have been spoilt by the loud music. Maybe they're deliberately targeting a younger crowd, but what is a great quiet location overlooking the water it was difficult to hold a conversation.

Hi Thomo, You make a fair point and thanks for bringing it to our attention. Without making excuses it is a bit of unique venue it terms of location and how the areas are purposed - some overlapping does occur. I'm sure Thomo there will be lots of times when the venue is quiet and peaceful how we do like... More

Love the layout of this restaurant. Great jazz music and a good spot for drinks with girlfriends! It is not the cheapest but I have never been to a restaurant with this layout.

Recommended Salt House by friends and it was worth it. We enjoyed the $20.00 lunch special and then discovered the express martinis,(try the one with rum, it was so smooth). Well worth it

Nothing exceptional, seafood are ok but the other dishes are just average. They cannot change anything for a customer request, quite bad!!!
