Work’s done, time for a bite to eat and a cold one. Make your next afterwork drinks one to remember at Black Salt Bar and Eatery!

Their seasonal menu packs a punch with small bites, sharing platters, burgers, main meals, and their famous stone grill with a range of meats served on a 400 degree volcanic stone.

The ambience is nothing short of amazing, with wood slats curving from the floor to ceiling and beyond, framing the comfy booths and bar area (which also features vine creepers!)

This friendly venue is so much more than a bar. Pop in on a live music night, or bring your colleagues for lunch. You will enjoy every second at Black Salt, give it a go and see for yourself!

We went to Black Salt with a group of 4. All of us ordered from the stone grill menu and really enjoyed our food. We also had some karaage chicken as a starter, which was very tasty. The desserts were good too. Definitely recommended as a nice, laid back dining experience

Huge compliments to our waiter Shannaz(spelling may be wrong sorry) what a STAR ! He was friendly polite and assertive throughout the time we were there. There was a error made on the drinks we ordered however the manner in which he handled the mistake and how he come back from it was fabulous.The food too was great. Our taste buds where loving the experience 10/10 Just one point, the photo of the inside on the website is warm, cheerful and welcoming in realty I didn't see or feel that on my arrival. A very casual & relaxed eating experience.

A great variety of meal options for meat-eaters and vegetarians. We went for a stone grill steak and enjoyed every bite of it. Delicious! Friendly and professional staff made the experience a whole notch better.

They seem to have changed the menu since we last went - and for the better - they still have the sizzlers which I love, and the ribs which the wife said tasted like they had been slow cooking all day. And the beef burgers were excellent - son loved it and struggled to eat it all and he's eating like a horse at the moment! The Taco selection as a main looked good when I saw it pass - will try that next time. Will definitely go back.

Thank you so much for a lovely evening team! We were greeted warmly and the food was as good as the service! The mocktails complimented the food well. We had the baos, jalapeño bites and chicken to start of with and two stone grills, ribs chicken and lamb burger for mains. Faultless and just hit the spot our last dinner with our brother and sister in law before we head off to Melbourne was great thank you again. When we come back to NZ see will def come back to visit black salt

The waitress we had was lovely and we really enjoyed our entree of pork bao, and liked the jalapeno poppers-although they appeared more commercial than restaurant made. But very tasty. Mike's main of herbed chicken was pleasant; but my veggie pot pie was inedible. Boiled veggies topped with bland potato. No seasoning; no sauce; absolutely NO taste. I appreciated the manager coming to talk to me about it BUT to say they'd used 'the same veggie mix all day' kind of annoyed me! But we were offered a free dessert -which we declined. As a footnote-toilets!, they were dirty and 3 out of the 4 had no loo paper.

Really loved the food here, I'm vegetarian and got the tacos and the pot pie- the cheesy mash on top was some of the best I've ever had! My partner got the chicken tacos and 3 choice meats with 2 sides which were served a sizzling hot stone so he could cook the meat to how he liked it - we were so impressed! Pricing is so decent here too, even without the first table discount. My partner moved here 2 years ago and said this was some of the best food he's ever had in NZ. We then shared the snickerbocker for dessert - soooo good. Staff were really friendly and gave us our space which was nice - would definitely return!
P.s try the blackberry mule cocktail - only $12 - YUM. :)

Great hearty servings for those with a bigger appetite.
Atmosphere was lovely.
Suggested a bowl of water for fingers after the ribs or a damp cloth as nothing was available except serviettes which just stick to the sticky fingers. But the Ribs were so worth it!!!

Such quick efficient service, ribs were amazing as was the salads and desserts. Great option if you’re after a quick meal but also good for big groups. Most of the tables were reserved for them. Got in and out before the rugby started but if you’d wanted to watch it there it was a comfortable environment. Not too packed!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Black Salt. The food was really delicious overall. We got some wedges and tacos for starters. The wedges came in a big bowl with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. The beef taco was amazing but the vegetarian taco with kumara was really spicy for some reason. Then my wife got the pork belly bao and I tried the stone plate. Both were really delicious and it was fun cooking the meat in front of me. The staff were really friendly and helpful. It ended up being really good Bali value with the discount.i also had a beer and my wife had one of the mocktails which were pinky only $6. We'd love to come again and try more things on the menu.
