Salted Vue

It was a typical tuesday. Kitchenslut was aimlessly sauntering along Shields St contemplating his liquidity/sweat ratio when the mobile went off. It was, yet again, a glamorous woman in distress! She had been shamelessly stood up on a business luncheon and required urgent company at Salted Vue.

However, before I had a chance to expand on the experience it turns out that Salted Vue apparently closed at new year. The line apparently is that it may reopen at another venue at some time however given the flux and uncertainty within the local dining scene at the moment, who knows?

It will be missed by many admirers and had seemed to be doing good local business with its set price menu deals. The food was also interesting and good quality, at least on the day I was there.
Oh well, another one bites the dust?

Update: There has also been some conjecture on the future of Chocolat downstairs from Salted Vue in the Mantra, and apparently under the same ownership. We have previously reviewed this very positively and will watch with interest.

Not very good. service disorganised, food patchy. must do better at these prices.

You have beaten me to the punch Festerbestertester as my metabolism struggles with the festive season and the feral barbarians of Cairns!

Still catching up with complete site rejig and overload on visionary ideals but my view on Salted Vue wasn't as negative as yours! Particularly on value where I note many establishments have started to move theor price range down and the Salted Vue set deal seems ok?

The divergent views on "Salted Vue" (and the owner's other restaurant attempt, Spanish Grill at Clifton Beach) are now irrelevant.

They're both now closed.

Also heard the Courthouse Hotel has gone into liquidation.

Thankyou to the most recent anonymous commentator for the info on Salted Vue and Chocolat however I didn't feel we could post the full comment as presented without further verification.

Salted Vue is now closed as posted. We understand Chocolat at the Mantra on The Esplanade was still open this week but will be closing for a few weeks? The new Chocolat on Grafton looks to be near complete and as far as we know still scheduled to open?
