Delicious food, good range on the menu that caters well for 2 people dining or for a larger group. It is great value for money, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. I go there a lot and love it each time!

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at RockSalt Tapas. We got the $32 banquet and every dish was amazing, could not fault it. The sangria was amazing!! The service was fantastic, the timing of the dishes coming out was great, and the atmosphere was fantastic! I will definitely go back there!

From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff were both friendly and attentive, and considering it was a very busy Friday night, that's pretty impressive! We ordered the Tapas Selection for 2 and unlike many places that would just give you what had been pre-selected, they asked if we were happy with the choices or would we like to change any. After we had been served the first few plates we were then asked if we were happy with the "interval" time between dishes which was nice. Food was delicious from start to finish - I thoroughly recommend Rocksalt Tapas!

Food beautiful with a good variety to choose from. Service good. Rather noisy venue, not helped by tiles on the floor. Very full on a Friday night and had to park quite a distance away due to the night time popularity of this area. However, would thoroughly recommend RockSalt Tapas.

The waitress spilt sauce over two of the patrons in our group... Little was done to assist just some napkins, was left with sticky limbs... 3 of the coffees had coffee grinds in them.. In drinkable, this was out of 6 coffees. There was 6 in our group and we ordered 3 banquets... This turned up on two plates per course? The waitress didn't offer explanation, so we were unsure how many parts of each meal each person had each? The food in general was nice... Thought there could have been a desert with a banquet??? The sangria was way too sweet! We purchased the 5 bottle bucket, which we thought was great value... Waitress asked what beers would you like? So we said which ones... Then the amount of which ones we asked for didn't match? "Why ask if you not going to deliver them!" Our group had been before and never experienced this before.. We all agreed to give the venue another chance...

We ordered from the set menu, there were 4 in our group. The place was very busy. We arrived at 6pm and left at 9:30pm. The service was good at the start but seemed to be non existent towards the end of the menu. The food was nice, i didn't like the crab Taco but 50% of our table did- so i would just consider that personal choice. The music was too loud to talk (and we where seated on a table further away), but i thought the set list was good. We had a dessert cocktail-very nice.

We went for lunch on a Sunday. It was the perfect place to sit and enjoy great food, great service and a really great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and really helpful and provided excellent service. The food and drinks are definitely reasonably priced and great value. Will definitely be regulars and highly recommend.

Eaten here a number of times over the past year. Lunches, dinners and Sunday afternoon pop ins. Food is always wonderful and service friendly and efficient. Can get a little noisy sometimes but I guess that adds to the atmosphere. Great to have the option of a slightly different eating experience in the area.

The food was delicious but it did take a while for it to come out - we were there for just over two hours (it's important to note that they were quite busy). Our last dish was the meatballs and one of them was raw in the middle. The restaurant kindly took the meatballs off the bill and gave us a 15% discount for that. I recommend going on a busy night like Friday, maybe sometime during weeknights.

We visited with a group to enjoy a mid week wind-down. We absolutely loved our night. The environment was relaxed, sophisticated and spacious. The service was fantastic; attentive without being instrusive. The food was incredible and the cocktails speak for themselves. I will not hesitate to book with you next time!!

Great little gem with a good atmosphere. The tapas portions were generous and the espresso martini was excellent. We ended up ordering too much food, all of which was very good, and with cocktails, wine and beer, the bill came to $250 for 5 people, which was a pleasant surprise.

The food, drinks and service were all fantastic. We unfortunately ordered too much food (Tapas) style. I think it would have been helpful if the waitress had said to wait to order more because we were unaware of portion sizes. Sad to leave food on the table. It was also very noisy with a 49th party and band.

Great food and service! I would recommend this Restaurant to all of my friends and family no problem. We had organised a cake for my daughter's 30th Birthday and they were only too helpful in storing it in their freezer for our dessert later. Thank you.

food was delicious...reasonably priced as well...cocktails were tasty and buckets of beer nicely chilled..... however ...because we had 3 of our 8 dinners with food issues, we decided to order individually.....this wan't conveyed to the kitchen by our waiter...consequently 8 people ate at different times, some 1 hour apart..... our waiter Jason was very nice, even though our table wasn't cleared with empty glasses and plates.......... ....however the lady running the restaurant was quite rude, saying don't you know what Tapas is?.....but i will try them again, maybe they were too busy.

A varied menu enabled us to find plenty of items that we liked. The food was great. The service was very good. The restaurant on a Friday night was quite busy, however everything went well. The drinks menu is very wide ranging. The value is reasonable, with the set menu option very good value.

The food was delicious. Our server was very polite and came to our table frequently for drink and food service. He alone would bring me back. The atmosphere was great apart from a very rowdy group (function/ party) behind us. Will definitely be back

We had a great meal. The food was fantastic and service was delightful. The soft shell crab tacos are a delight, we ordered two selections each from the tapas menu and had more than we could eat. The cocktails were great to.
