Christmas Day lunch was excellent from the moment we walked in until we left - our waitress was a delight and couldn’t do enough

The food was glorious and we couldn’t have wished for better

Excellent food as always, good service too. A slight delay getting going on the food but it being Christmas Day hardly a surprise. Never felt rushed, food top notch, wine excellent too.

This was the 5th time I had eaten at The Salt Room and I’ve never had a meal that was less than excellent. We both had the seared scallops as a starter and if I have a slight criticism it is that we both agreed that the purée underneath was very salty - almost to the point of masking the delicate flovour of the scallops themselves. Apart from that, the monkfish, hake and the deserts were perfect. Thank you Salt Room. After this weird year it was such a joy to be out, eating fine food perfectly served by our waiter.

Staff did not adhere to social distancing rules. I asked for a candle to be put in my partners dessert for his birthday and they did nothing. Very packed and staff added tables beside us after we were seated. Didn’t feel safe, food was excellent tho.

lovely restaurant although due to covid a limited menu which was disappointing - very expensive but would not be put off from returning - only a 2 hour slot which could be a problem if you were eating with a larger group and you would always be conscious of the time instead of enjoying your evening. The starter sauce was cold but other than that the meal we had was lovely.

Delicious fish, outstanding quality! My husband is a seafood lover and we usually only find this quality of fish and oysters in France. Highly recommended. The service was attentive but not overbearing and there was a nice ambience. Great position for a stroll along the promenade before/after the meal.

Really lovely staff. Incredible food, especially the meat - a little heavy on the seaweed seasoning on the sides however that may be personal preference.

A really fabulous and festive meal, I’ll definitely be returning.

A nice lunch, but not a great lunch. Food somewhat under seasoned and the celery which came with my main dish has not been stripped of the stringy part. Service as great as ever but food needs a little more attention to detail.

We and our guests loved the usual great food, service and ambience at the Salt Room, but now seated on their outside terrace allowing legal socially distancing dining for separate households. Salt Room's efforts to temper the cold with heaters, keep the rain off and provide festive cheer, whilst maintaining a genuine outside experience is very much appreciated.
