I have been to salt a few times before so brought 4 customers with me for dinner, none of whom had been before. The food was delicious . I had the lamb which was melt in the mouth. There is a good selection of drinks and gins more importantly! The atmosphere was comfy and relaxed. For 5 of us with 2 drinks each and 3 courses it was £199. Great dining experience and location. Very happy customers !

I dine here often as I love it for so many reasons. Staff are welcoming, friendly, attentive and helpful. Music is always good, always eclectic, jazzy and smooth. Menu is wide ranging. Food is tasty and hot. Wine list is extensive. Good authentic furniture, crockery and cutlery. I recommend goats cheese bruschetta as a starter followed by chicken ballotine. Cocktail wise, try the espresso martini. If you haven't done Salt, you haven't done Belfast!

Salt, restaurant is just fantastic, the food and the staff were excellent. The area where the restaurant is lovely so you can go for a drink afterwards. We were delighted that we chose to go to Salt as it was one of the highlights in for the weekend. I would advise booking in advance in you have a group, as the food is so good, everyone wants to get their bit of Salt !!!!

Salt provided casual dining with a good value pre-theatre menu. Broccoli soup to start was watery and tasteless, spicy wings were much better. Cauliflower pasta main was lovely with a crunchy top and several cheeses. Chicken ballotine was anaemic and quite flavourless despite a pancetta filling. It was served with a potato fondant that lost its delight when reheated to serve and a chicken velouté that had a slimy skin and no depth. When staff were informed, an apology was immediate and a pudding was offered. Both the chocolate peanut butter brownie and sticky toffee pudding were fair. The decaffeinated americano was very poor. If you want plain food, well priced in a great location then Salt is for you. The staff are knowledgeable, fast and friendly. If you know food and cooking, perhaps try somewhere else.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions. Is a small restaurant but has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Good menu covering a selection of both meat and fish dishes. All food was cooked and presented to to a high standards. It's one of those restaurants, when you finish your meal you feel you have had an excellent dining experience at a reasonable cost. Will visit again.

Lovely food and drinks, we had the chicken wings which were delicious the sauce was gorgeous, could only be improved by adding a few more wings this would be my only criticism of the night. We had the Ribeye special which was tasty and the hake (I'm not a fish lover but my partners bake looked beautiful). Finished off the evening with some lovely desserts and cocktails... Very yummy! Could eat it all over again, will be back.
