Had a very delicious meal here. Portions were extremely generous, almost too big if you're having multiple courses. Great menu choices. Staff were friendly, helpful & prompt. All in all we were very pleased.

Unfortunately black salt has changed their style of dining. It was one of the few finer dining experiences in Geelong. Now it has reverted to fancy pub so has lost its point of difference. The food wasn't great. So disappointed as we used to love going here as the menu was great. Probably won't return.

We were there last time for a business discussion with friends. We found the food very wide ranging and the service was excellent. We sat on a table in the middle where we did have a view of Corio bay. Prices were a bit over the top but after allowing for the excellent service, food and atmosphere overlooking the bay... More

Mains were tasty but very overpriced considering they come with no sides. Good for a treat but won't be back.

Dear selkielikesit, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I am sorry to hear you feel our "tasty" mains are overpriced. We believe our locally sourced produce featuring pasture fed Victorian beef ($42 for Eye fillet) , free range pork ($34 1.2Kg Hock) and Bannockburn Chicken ($34 for 1/2 chicken) is fairly priced. We do not include... More

Not a cheap meal but a range of great meals - people who are steaks loved them - I enjoyed the mushroom tofu entree and the haloumi main with hot Louisiana hot sauce - nice water views from front area.

Although we had heard mixed reports about this Restaurant from friends , we thought we would give it a try as it has the perfect location on the Geelong Esplande with stunning views of the bay and since it was our wedding anniversary too.

Dear nick p, Thanks for taking the time to post your review. I’m concerned you claim the steak was $51 when in fact our Victorian pasture fed beef is $42.

This restaurant is attached to a motel and whilst the motel IMO is no slouch the restaurant is actually better. We have dined here on a number of occasions, the last being New Years Eve and we always have a lovely meal and they do serve very good wines which is a plus when you don't have to drive. Service...

Black Salt, Geelong was a fantastic Valentines Day experience! To start, my fiancé and I were attentively greeted by the staff, and directed to our table - with which we were fortunate to have an elegant sea view. Our table was embellished with pre-lit candles, a plethora of beverage and meal options, as well as the infamous black salt. For... More
