I enjoy Sea Salt on a regular basis. Its great for a quick and satisfying dinner prior to going to the movies at the nearby Nova Cinema. The food is fresh, simple well cooked seafood. The service is always prompt and friendly.

Beautiful fresh sushi (which we walked past), wonderful choice of fresh fish cooked any / every way and delicious fresh... More

We came across this place on our trip on the hop on hop off bus when it stopped on lygon st. the platter is great, we had the grilled fish with calamari and prawns. It was good yo share. The fish was fresh and tender and the chips were perfectly made. Really enjoyed the lunch. The skewer is also good

We needed a quick, inexpensive and easy meal after seeing a movie at Nova on a very warm night and Sea Salt was a good choice. Staff were friendly and helpful and there were inside and outside eating options - we chose outside because it was quite busy and noisy inside. Service was prompt (considering it was busy) and the...

Nice place to have fresh F&Cs! Would recommend the grilled Barramundi and the fried pineapple. Pretty nice. If you are in the area, worth popping by for lunch.

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
