Salt Grill and Sky Bar

Way up high in the sky, at Salt Grill and Sky Bar, the view is simply astounding.

Getting to the restaurant is an experience in itself. Head to Level 4, where there is a dedicated Salt concierge, who will show you to the lift lobby located within an art gallery. Dim lights, soft meditation-type music, projections of swirling clouds add to the feeling of exclusivity. One continues to float on clouds as you step out into the bright expanse of the high-ceilinged restaurant and savour the view that stretches out before you.

No surprises though when it came to the food, which has a casual Australian vibe.


Beetroot salad, with rocket, endives, mustard vinaigrette, roquefort cheese. Well composed and a good balance of flavours. I thought the pungency of the cheese might overwhelm the subtle flavours of beets but surprisingly it was a good match.


Roselle spiced barramundi fillet, cauliflower cream, chargrilled asparagus and lime. This dish was extremely ordinary and I could easily have cooked this in my own kitchen - couldn't taste the roselle spices, or detect any hint of lime.


Lunch ended with teeny tiny petit fours. While the food itself is only passable enough to merit a "can consider if in the vicinity", the view alone makes the journey worthwhile.
