I recently took a day trip to St Claire and upon looking at several other venue’s decided upon trying Salt. The Décor inside had a rustic seafaring persuasion without trying to be pretentious. The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. Staff were friendly, though nothing beyond a “hello, what can I do for you?”, service was efficient with no long waits (the restaurant was ¾ full at the time) and all my needs accommodated for. The coffee was of a good standard and my meal was very enjoyable, delicious even. I would definitely return again to try other items on the menu and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere, I suppose the only thing that could have improved my experience at Salt would have been a little more cheeriness from staff. I would recommend to others.

We have only been to Salt twice for coffee and muffins. Both times the coffee has been very nice and the muffins small but tasty. It certainly is a nice spot to sit outside on a sunny day. No ocean view at Salt, but plenty of sun and the sound of the surf! What really let this place down was the staff. We have had a mixture, one lovely lady brought out our coffees, but the rest we have delt have just been plain rude. :(

Amazing coffee but terrible food.

Had eggs bene, one egg was cooked, the other raw.
Partner had vege fritters and they were sickly sweet.

We were sandwiched in between a baby and a toddler when the rest if the floor was empty. Not the best atmosphere...

The young Waitress asked how our meals were, we told her about the raw egg and she had no response, just continued to charge us.

Just before we were out the door the manager offered us a $20 voucher. Will definitely be using it on takeaway coffees.

Booked a table for eight family members to mark the end of a great holiday. Everything was just right with our booking and the meal.

Mixture of mains from steaks to vegetarian chosen from the varied menu. Food enjoyed by all. As it was a special occasion we all indulged and enjoyed a fabulous sweet.

Staff from the start were attentive but not intrusive.

A fantastic evening meal :-) and would highly recommend.

We popped in for breakfast on a chilly Sunday morning. The restaurant was lovely and warm, and the service was top notch. We had the eggs (scrambled) and bacon, and the pancakes (with bacon and bananas). The eggs were delicious, the pancakes had a little too much maple syrup for our taste, but they were good nonetheless. A great way to start the day.
