“Disappointing”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Arrived on a Saturday at 2.30pm for late lunch. Greeted by the male behind the counter. We said that we would like to look at the menu and did they have a table? Yes we have a table but hurry up and decide if we want to eat as kitchen closing because they were not busy. Find it hard that this restaurant is on a main road and they are closing early on a Saturday?? Three of us. Ordered two coffees and placed food order. Took nearly 20 minutes for the coffee to arrive, was luke warm so sent it back. Fish arrived, more batter than fish and when the fish was found, it didn't taste very nice, very flaky cheap fish. The pasta dish was good and the salmon salad ok. Girl that served us was great though - full credit to her. Won't be in any rush to go back. Not really that impressed and the prices are high.

Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to review us on Tripadvisor and we are sorry that there were some shortfalls in your experience this time. Rest assured that your issues have been followed up with our staff in order to continue providing the award winning standards that we have maintained for some nine years now.
We would like to advise that yes we completed our lunch service a little earlier than usual on the day of your visit due to a large set up that was required for a fully booked night with lots of large parties for dinner service. We were not closing, merely finishing our a la carte lunch service.

Many thanks again for your comments which were taken in the constructive way in which they were written.

“Great staff, great food”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

The staff have got to be some of the best in Perth. Try to sit inside to drown out the sound of the road. The food is very delicious and fairly priced. I would definitely go again.

“Fantastic Location, Beautiful Food.”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

My Girlfriend & I have dinned at the White Salt 3 times now, & every time leaving satisfied & happy. On Our most resent visit I sat down to the Fillet Steak, as She had the Kangaroo. The Steak was cooked perfect, medium just how I like it, & well seasoned. My Girlfriend first commented on how amazing the Kangaroo was presented, then went on about how flavorsome it was. Overall very good, the staff are lovely & always have a smile, look forward to our next visit.

“Lovely restaurant but disappointing food.”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Visited this restaurant today with family. We had a lovely table and front of house staff were excellent however the food let the place down. My pappardelle with mushrooms and truffle oil was both dry and tasteless. I don't know whether the chef forgot to add it but there was not a hint of truffle flavour in this dish. The pasta was cooked perfectly but no amount of salt, pepper and extra Parmesan that I added to this made it taste any better. The rest of the group faired a little better however nobody has any desire to return due to the disappointing food. What a shame as we all expected tasty food for the $400 + that we paid.
