We used to love this place when it had happy hour. Nice place for a chat, but we can't go again because parents let their kids run around the bistro area screaming & do nothing about it. And there's the kid play area next to...it. This time we visited there wasn't many customers.More

We had drinks snd th Ed b dinner, Ordering cocktails online from your table is the best option as they are $6 cheaper. The good was typical pub grub.

My cheeseburger took way too long, and was sub par quality. The food is below average I could visit grilld and get a burger faster. Will not be coming back.

Good balanced menu options of seafood, pork, lamb, chicken, steak and burgers. Can order and pay from your table using an app but be prepared to see those who ordered at the bar get their food before you. I'd suggest getting drinks from the bar...then spend time browsing the menu and ordering from your table. Bookings recommended.More

Good views and the food was adequate. Your mainstay pub serve with friendly service. Good place to eat if you didn't have a booking for other local restaurants

Great selection of beers but you’ll pay for it! Insane - 2 schooners for $23.40…. Not cool for a pub/bistro. Definitely not somewhere for more than 1 or 2.

Called into saltbar for a quick family dinner on a Tuesday night and was blown away by the new furniture and fitout it looks awesome and new seats are so comfortable, the food itself is was spot on with a mixture of salads,flatbreads and schnitzels...all prepared to perfection and served by friendly staff especially the 2 young fellas behind the bar and the manager who introduced himself as Paul. Keep it up salt barMore

Great location and awesome selection of beers on tap… really good. Food though was okay only. Standard pub fare at top dollar prices. Call out to the staff as well who were really decent group of young people, going above and beyond in some cases....Overall, a mixed bag and add to that an tonne of young kids screaming and just dead set running amock- the experience was deflating. I guess word to the wise, the side of the building looks like the kids area at McDonalds - bewareMore

In the middle of winter it could do with putting the heater on, but other than that it’s a comfortable place to grab a quick dinner had the Wagu burger which was surprisingly good and wife had the pizza which was about average.
