Visited Salt pre-Christmas while visiting the in-laws. The staff was very accommodating as soon as we arrived and a high chair appeared immediately for our boy. They even put the buggy away for us. The place was buzzing - really nice feel to it.
The menu read very well and I ended up picking the confit duck salad. It was somewhat different than I was expecting but on the good side: duck was crispy and the salad definitely gave something different to the plate. There was a nice selection on the menu and everybody was delighted with what they ate. Table was quickly cleared and for dessert we decided to share the trio of mini desserts with coffee. It was a perfect way to finish a fab family lunch. Definitely will be back. Highly recommend.

December is always a little crazy where ever you go but the staff at Salt were very accommodating and friendly .. service was really good and I really enjoyed my poached eggs with Spanish potatoes - delicious... There was a really nice vibe and we will definitely return, sooner rather then later!

Always consistently great. Normally go for brunch and love the food and service.
The interiors are warm and bright with plenty of natural light.

Late breakfast / early brunch with my daughter - long time since I had been to Salt - will definitely return quicker

Arrived at just after 12:15 - brunch starts at 12:30 - so check which menu you are on

We had no difficulty as we both choose the poached egg with sourdough toast and avocado- I added smoked salmon to mine - we had green tea and an excellent green smoothie - healthy but delicious - it hit the spot

Service was friendly and good

The restaurant is always bright and airy

The big plus is the excellent Avoca shop in the front - excellent produce and always worth a visit

Tip - parking can be difficult at weekends so drop your passengers off and let them get your table while you find the parking spot

Will be back soon for more delights

Avoca was a fantastic addition to Monkstown, as very regular customers it is sad to see how far down hill it has gone. The Restaurent in the evenings is half empty or half full, the Dinner Menu is far from what it was, no specials, very poor choice. The changes since ownership by the Prates is extremely obvious, great staff but poor Management. PS. The store in particular since the Butcher left is also going down hill. Must be obvious to Management, the turnover now must make this obvious! What a pity !
