6 Comments on Salt Rock Grille Restaurant-A taste of the Americas

  1. Well done video! It’s good to see you accurately representing their food and business as their Facebook page has food pictures they’ve taken from the internet and tried to pass off as their own.

  2. Hi, I was just thinking about Salt Rock Grill the other day. I did not know there were new owners. I will have to go by and check it out.

  3. Nice write up and video. We will have to check out this restaurant, it is around the corner form our condo we rent.

  4. This restaurant is nice but they have to relize there are dozens of restaurants all around them and many of them are specialty restaurats. I dont see how this one stands out. In fact it even does not stand out because the location sets back from 5th Avenue. Why would someone say I wan to go to the Salt Rock Grill tonight? Tey have good drinks? Yes they do but the prices for the specialty cocktail of 145 pesos is close to some places that offer a great setting or view like Catch Restaurant. If someone says the food is good, yes but so are dozens of other restaurants. I hope these new owners find their rythm soon and make it stand out soon.

  5. I went to dinner here aqnd met the owners. Nice couple that cares about the place. That is always a good start to a restaurant.

  6. We will have to stop by this restaurant. We are always looking for new places to check out in Playa Del Carmen.
