Great vibe and delicious meals. Recommend the Thai prawn salad and their steaks. A perfect venue for that special dinner out whether it be an anniversary or a birthday. Little bit pricey but worth it.

We come here every couple of months when we manage to get down from Johannesburg. For local restaurants, where casual eating is the way you do it, we rate service as very good when it is friendly and knowledgeable, and not in your face. Here...More

Well known local restauranteur Hugo Palacio and staff has made the move to Tiffany's Shopping Centre opening his brand new restaurant, Eat Local Salt Rock. Hugo's motto is simple: Good quality, good variety, good service and prices to match. With an Argentinian grilling style, nothing is better than steak, fish or chicken on a charcoal fire.
