Food & Drinks


All Dolphin Heads Resort function rooms are licensed until midnight and we have a wide selection of drinks available. If you have any special requests we are happy to try and source them for you. A copy of our drinks menu is available at any time but as we are constantly upgrading our selection, prices may change so we recommend that you make your drinks selections close to the time of your function.

Salt Café, Bar and Restaurant caters for all venues and can tailor menus just for you. We are also happy to discuss themed menus. In both our inside venues (Salt Café, Bar and Restaurant and the Dolphin Room) we offer you the choice of alternate drop, canapes, platters or placed set menus.

Buffets are also available in the outside venues (Marquee and Beach Club). Buffets in our inside venues will be accessed on the function type and by liaison with the Function Team at time of booking only.
