When we arrived at Salt on the Beach our friends told us that this spot, right on the beachfront, is great to take the family for a bite, play and a swim. What more could you want when you're looking for a place to eat, drink and chill with family and friends on a lazy afternoon on the weekend?

Salt on the Beach in Fremantle seems to hold fairly even votes in the likes and dislikes column. After coming here to the Beach Bar area, I would personally say that it's easy to enjoy a light snack, a beer if you're happy with the range and the sweeping ocean views in the presence of your family and friends and their conversation.

I think it's equally important to let people know and acknowledge the places that require an individual patron's own visit to decide on the quality of the complete dining experience or activity for themselves. If something is felt to be sub-standard or mediocre, then we have a moral obligation to share our personal opinion or encounter.

On any particular given day, conditions or circumstances can change or occur differently for many reasons. There is also some confusion with people's feedback in distinguishing between Salt on the Beach inside and the Blacksalt Brewery Beach Bar outside.

With that said, if you're after a 'laid back, casual and don't take it too seriously' venue, then the Blacksalt Brewery Beach Bar is the location. It is child friendly, right on the beach and you can bring your sandy feet. Many locals seem to 'pop in' for a drink after a swim or a kite-surf and the closed in playground provides protection for children from the main road or escape.

Eating here late afternoon, after having no lunch, we feasted on beer battered chips with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce for $10 a serve from the Beach Bar menu. Different beers are also brewed on-site by Geoff and Dan Goddard. A pint of 'Red' and a 'Roger' stubby came to $17. Price is something that is usually clear-cut for customers and requires no obvious statements.

By the early evening when we left, they were setting up for wood fired pizzas and the establishment was certainly packed with a lot of people and activity. With music and live DJ on occasion after dark, they will gather many patrons in party mode, making the most of the magnificent Indian Ocean views and close locality to the Perth 2011 Sailing Championships in Fremantle.

Weddings or corporate functions are also held at Salt on the Beach and may have more attention to detail inside the restaurant itself. This was a feature we did not get to experience.

The Blacksalt Brewery Beach Bar is located at 42 Port Beach Road on the corner of Tydeman Road, North Fremantle, outside Salt on the Beach. They are open seven days a week from 11am until late. Enquiries can be made by contacting (08) 9430 6866.

Really? If there's a next time, I'll give the on-site brew a go instead. :)
