What better way to treat yourself after a heavy dose of surfing than with a freshly baked, wood-fired pizza. Sounds ideal, right?

With the ocean still in your hair, head for this stylish eatery which serves unbeatable beachy vibes in the city. Staying loyal to a clean palette of white, green and brown, it's light and refreshing; quite reminiscent of a gin and tonic if you think about it. But we'll get to drinks later...

Putting their own twist on classic Italian fare, Salt Meats Cheese offers a truly unique menu. Famous for the flaming cheese wheel pasta (pasta cooked inside a wheel of cheese); a once in a lifetime opportunity! Alternatively, choose from a range of handmade pasta, traditional pizza, salads and antipasto platters, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options to try.

Ride the wave and wash it down with a crisp glass of white or an ice-cold beer. If we've tempted you into a gin and tonic, we consider our work done!

If we could rate the food higher than 5, we definitely would. It was incredible!
The gluten and dairy free prosciutto pizza was unbelievably good - best pizza I’ve ever eaten - full stop! And my wife’s gnocchi was out of this world good! All and all just brilliant and great value even at full price - but at 50% off, a total bargain! Almost felt bad about paying so little!

Food was unreal! Service was great We’ll be back to try more off the menu soon. Very accommodating considering we had a toddler that didn’t want to sit still so the colouring in books were a thoughtful touch!

Excellent restaurant with fast and friendly service. We had the gnocci and it was melt in your mouth good! We also had pizza here which reminded us of our trip to Naples. We definitely recommend this place!

We read the reviews on different websites and chose this restaurant for our first dinner in Gold Coast. We were not disappointed. The staff were lovely and the food was real, authentic Italian.

Salt Meats Cheese was an amazing experience, literally every part of our meal was perfect.

The service was impeccable, the staff were friendly, helpful and amazing with our two children. Coloring in was given to the kid’s and then the staff proudly displayed their pictures on the restaurant wall.

We ordered lots of small plates and a pizza to share. Everything was delicious, well seasoned and portion sizes were large. The pizza was traditional Italian style and the toppings were fresh and tasty. Both children and adults enjoyed all of the food.

We will definitely be returning to eat here.

Cavernous space with loud music...I know it's fashionable.
Service very attentive and, by the way, the salads are delicious and HUGE.
Meatballs very tasty and moist, nice marinara sauce.
My friend mentioned his pizza was undercooked a bit, it did look lovely.
Nice lunch

Love the funky and casual vibe of the location. To top this the pizza was AMAZING and they were great in accommodating a slightly bespoke request. Drinks were icy cold which was really appreciated considering the heat of the day. As we were so full we did a take home dessert of tiramisu which was REALLY good. Will be beck
