About Pink Salt
Double Bay’s Pink Salt is a double whammy restaurant destination in Sydney, matching a stunning, stylish venue with stunning, stylish food. Head chef Mark Williamson’s menus range across the snackable to late suppers, with lunch and dinner in between, the common factor being a distinct Mediterranean accent on every dish. At the bar, classic cocktails and fresh inventions are shaken and served by a team of mixologists, alongside a great selection of craft beer and fine wines. Pink Salt’s resident DJs play out Friday and Saturday nights, and they’re also on call when you book a private function here – this bar and restaurant down Cross Street is the Porsche Carrera of private dining and party venues.

Pink Salt has been serving Double Bay residents and a loyal eastern suburbs fanbase for over a decade, a profile which grew across Sydney when this Cross Street bar and restaurant was featured on reality TV show My Restaurant Rules. Newly refurbished by design team AZBcreative, Pink Salt is an incredibly good-looking venue, with a sun-dappled courtyard, glass- and vine-enclosed conservatory, and an earthy, airy, split-level interior balancing warmth and industrial chic in beautifully measured form. The menu has also been given a once over by chef Mark Williamson (The Tilbury, The Botanist, Bondi Hardware) to bring it in line with owner Evan Hansimikali’s Greek background, emphasising the ingredients and flavour profiles of the Mediterranean in dishes grounded in an Australian culinary style.
Pink Salt goes to great lengths to keep its food offering close to heart and home, making everything from pasta and sauces to ice cream at their Cross Street premises, growing their own produce where possible – their (stuffed) zucchini flowers, for instance – and sourcing seasonally and locally where it’s not, including their supply of grass-fed Black Angus beef, for which they turn to Glenburn farm in Jambaroo. The menu is eminently shareable, as good Mediterranean-tinged cuisine should be, with tapas-style plates of like single origin Brasserie bread with sage and garlic butter, Sydney rock oysters, crab and pancetta croquettes, feta and kale spanakopita, braised octopus and a delicious fusion in the form of scallops, burnt carrot, with black pudding crumbs, orange and saffron just some of the options. Tempted yet? Larger plates take it up a notch, but it’s to this beloved Double Bay restaurant’s great credit that while it’s always stratospherically gourmet, the food here remains deliciously down-to-earth, from snacks to banquets.
Food and ambience always great. Happy and friendly staff and service is terrific. We always enjoy going there for lunch and are looking forward to our next rendezvous at Pink Salt
This restaurant is amazing! The food was great the service was awesome, the restaurant is beautifully designed loved every minute if it!!! 10 out of 10
Above and beyond our expectations. Very warm and friendly staff, and the food was to die for. i'm not a fan of olives, I can take or leave them, but Pink Salt's marinated olives were amazing - they had a mellow intriguing flavour, without being overly bitter. Generous mains of perfectly cooked beef cheek and succulent chicken with a lovely crispy skin, along with the delicious vegies, left us very satisfied. And then we had to find room for the incredible baklava and ice-cream and pistachio crumb. A stunning meal, worth every cent. We'll return, for sure.
Great place, really tasty good in a nice setting. Also would be good for functions. I will definately come back to the place again. Was good.
My husband and I went to Pink Salt for dinner and to catch-up with a friend who we hadn't seen in a while. Unfortunately it was so loud from other 3 large parties going on around us, we could barely hear ourselves speak. I don't plan ever going back on a Friday night. It was too loud - uncomfortably so! The staff were nice. The food was delicious, although a little on the small side. Not a great night.
Lovely service. Friendly and fast. it was a slow night, however. The restaurant was pleasant and the food was good. We did go on a super cold night and a little more heating would have been wonderful. I recommend Pink Salt as a good place to go for casual dining.
This is my third visit to Pink Salt. The restaurant is located at a beautiful location with parking nearby. The service is always friendly and the food is delicious and beautifully presented. My friend and I had a great time.
We had a great dinner there tonight for my birthday. The food was wonderful as was the service. I highly recommend it Pink Salt. My birthday surprise of the delicious Raspberry soft serve was an added bonus !
Dining at Pink Salt is always enjoyable. Staff were exceptional and food was just great. Will definitely be back to dine again and will ensure all friends and family are aware of this great place.
The service was great once we arrived. As soon as we received our table, we asked if we could be moved outside. Once an outside table was available, they quickly moved us. Our mains came out quickly and was delicious. The chicken and baba ghanoush melted in my mouth. I wouldn't however go back for the dessert. We waited more than 20 minutes for the drop doughnuts and the flavours were pretty bland. The waiter apologised for the wait which we appreciated.
Delightful service and really lovely food - super tasty & varied. Had popcorn chicken (because who could turn down popcorn chicken), which was seasoned really well... For mains shared the gnocchi (the mushrooms and pumpkin were delicious and also chicken with baba ganouch and lime potatoes (could have eaten an entire bowl of these potatoes). Dessert was soft serve & donuts. It was all delicious. Great night out.
My wife and I had a wonderful St Valentines day dinner at Pink Salt. They had a clever and delicious menu created specifically for the evening. The staff were friendly and attentive and the venue is casual and comfortable.
Absolutely loved Pink Salt. Loved the share plate concept and every dish we ate was delicious. Evan was so friendly and welcoming, all in all a great experience!
Our experience at Pink Salt was faultless. Our waitpersons, Sophie and Nathan were outstanding and made our stay there not wanting to leave. The food was faultless.
WOW!!!!! I guess when you go to a restaurant not only do you go for the food but for the experience. Beautiful venue with customer service at its best. The staff were accommodating and professional. The food an experience(hats off to the chef), most definitely a must. PINK SALT thankyou.
Very nice restaurant nearby Double Bay Ferry. Great menu with some dishes to share - grilled octopus, buratta with fresh tomatoes and corn chicken (my favourite). A very nice wine list with some local and international wines. A great place to dine in a hot summer evening!
Fantastic food and service. We ordered a few different starters between us and each had a main dish. All we beautifully presented and divine. Desert also perfection. Our waiters knew the answers to all of our questions regarding each dish and were more than happy to accommodate.
Hello just want to say I had a lovely evening 🍸 🍾 with my lovely friend , she urged me to book this place #pinksalt . The good , drinks the dining experience was great thank I loved it . I will definitely come back
We went there last Sunday for my husband's birthday celebration. This is a really beautiful place with very kind staff. My little daughter was very welcomed too. Strongly recommend for weekend family dining and of course for lovers too
Great location with ample parking on the surrounding streets. Beautiful ambience with modern decor and welcoming, friendly staff. Food is of a high quality in terms of ingredients and actual execution of the dish. Superb overall.
Noisy on a Saturday night when large parties so we were seated outside which was a bit chilly. Service was good and all the dishes we had were good especially the doughnuts for dessert and the soft serve ice cream
Service was attentive. I waited a long time for my mains to arrive. The chef gave us sweet potato fries free to compensate for the delays. The soft serve dessert was amazing. Would recommend this and place and would return.
Very nice food and service,especially the dessert! Yum! Great location, easy to find and accessible parkings nearby as well as public transport. Hopefully I'll come back for the slow cook lamb should again
Pink Salt is a lovely place with a decent food menu. Food was very tasty and dessert was fun. The service was poor and the cocktail list was not impressive at all.
Great staff and great food. Definitely recommend to go here if you haven't been before. The gnocchi and sirloin were both very nice. Staff were always attentative and willing to help.
Great food, fresh well presented and superb flavours. Service was ok. Friendly staff is a little inexperienced. Only thing really lacking about this place is a better location. Good spot
Great atmosphere and amazing food. Very generous serving sizes. Enjoyed the cheese platter, octopus and pork belly with a friend. Staff were all friendly and attentive. Had a great night.
Excellent lunch - 3 shared plates for two of us; Popcorn chicken, fresh chilli, sriracha aioli, Feta and kale spanakopita and Grilled octopus, fennel, chimichurri (gf). Great value and service.
Interesting Restaurant. Staff excellent and very helpful. We were there on a particularly busy night but still they jmanaged to look after us. I'd go back again when I'm next in Sydney. Food was different.
The front verandah was perfect for a wet day and we found the staff very helpful and friendly. Food excellent and as I did not really have high expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. Well recommended!
We had a lovely birthday lunch at Pink salt. The food was very nice. The service excellent and the restaurant was not noisy so we could enjoy a leasurely lunch and hear each other speaking
We had a great time. The All Blacks rugby team was also there! Try the white chocolate egg for dessert! Amazing! Definitely the most interesting dessert I've ever eaten.
Great place! Staff were prompt and friendly, food was great and the atmosphere was nice too! A little quiet for a Saturday night but I guess that's what Sydney is like mid-winter! 4 stars.
Great service and delicious food and drinks! Love the atmosphere on classy and relaxing Double Bay. We sat outside and the whole environment felt very Mediterranean. Loved it.
The food was delicious and great service! I had the barramundi (market fish) with sweet potato fries ... fish was cooked perfectly! The beef cheek was also delicious.
Great service. Food was really nice but definitely a "modern" menu! We had some difficulty ordering as the food was a bit "tortured" but when it arrived was really nice. Would love to see some plainer options on the menu as well.
Superb fresh food and excellent service. A winning combination and wonderful experience. Staff are brilliant. Get out of central Sydney and try this place in Double Bay.
Great casual dining, energetic environment, brand menu, excellent service and high quality food. Loved it here for dinner, would highly recommend if you are in the area.
Lovely, pleasant environment with great, friendly staff. The menu was diverse and different dietary requirements were catered to. Food was really nice and coffee was also fantastic.
Great food, excellent service. Lovely atmosphere. Good substantial menu with fresh ingredients. Good drinks menu. So impressed with the table service and will definitely return. :) :)
Great atmosphere, service and above all great consistent food. Excellent menu for families with kids of all ages. Will most definitely be back on a regular basis.
Great friendly service, good menu, nice location for a big party or dinner for two. Excellent quality food with good portion sizes and good presentation. Nice atmopshere with village feel and ambiance

We had an amazing evening at pink salt. Delicious food and very friendly service. The desserts were outstanding and we will definitely go back! Thank you
Great food & very friendly staff. Such a lovely atmosphere. I have been a few times over the years & I have love coming here everytime.
Attentive service, great to sit outdoors and ambience was pleasant. Mains were tasty and sides were terrific. Barista knows how to make a good coffee as well. Would definitely visit again.
The waiters were very attentive in a positive way. The food we had was good and it was served very nicely. So it was a good experience to visit your restaurant.
Great food and great service. Friendly and welcoming staff with great recommendations on the menu and also wider area. Definitly a place to return to.
Our night was fantastic, as always. The staff were lovely and attentive and of course the food was delicious! Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent but quite pricey. If you're willing to spend $150 on a normal-sized meal for two then this is a good place to do it!
