A quiet place with a beautiful sea view, pleasant service.
We had the afternoon tea. It was very copious : there was far enough food to keep us full until the next day ! The scones were very good, but apart from these, the food was not very refined : a ball of chocolate ganache, a cake (that seemed quite old) soaked in syrup, a fritter that also didn't seem very fresh, but coated in icing, a huge candy floss... It was good, but given the price (about 30 pounds per person including the service), we expected finer food.
this was my second visit and it was just as good as the first my partner was very impressed
Loved our food. Very well executed and impressed a foody family
Really lovely afternoon tea. Delicious food and great service. Would definitely recommend.
A great dining experience the staff worked very hard and on the small details, the food was outstanding.
Could do with a few vegetarian dishes but again i am sure if they are to the same standard as the rest of the menu you will not be disappointed.
Food was lovely. Waiter was brilliant. Very helpful.
Service was overall good, had a upset with food but was taken care of by server quickly
Overall food was a but salty for my tasting but still pretty enjoyable
We waited ten minutes for our table. We then had to ask someone for a drink. Then it transpires that our original afternoon tea booking had been lost in the system (we had moved the date of booking but the type of booking hadn't transposed over) so we eventually had an hours wait until said tea arrived. I felt that the staff were very quick to blame me for this error and made me feel very uncomfortable in front of my mother whose birthday treat this was for. It spoilt the occasion.
On this basis I'd not be too happy to recommend but I have heard good reports from other people so perhaps we weee very J lucky on the day we went.
This was our first time and we went with a group of friends for my husbands 50th! He loves sea food so this seemed the perfect place. The staff knew the menu very well and were able to make useful suggestions. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for something a bit different. It was great!
A good all round experience. Food was terrific and waitress detailed in her description of the various dishes on the menu. The wine selection was modern. Service was good albeit we were very much left to our selves once food had been served. The ambience was ok albeit a few children might have been in bed that time of night!
overall the food very good except fish could have been larger and the sourdough with the cheese board was rock hard
Fantastic meal. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented. Excellent service from the staff and seated with a great view of the sea!
Flawless presentation and delivery. The meal was spectacular. Incredible combination of flavours. Very impressed.
Extremely good service. Two of us asked to replace accompanying veg of one dish to be substituted for those of another. Only one was done but replacement immediately offered and profuse apologies. We ate as served. A little later a plate with chocolate truffles arrived with “apologies” written in chocolate across it.
Great location. Decent wine. Food very good but over-priced.
had a lovely time on my Mum's birthday we were all made to feel special.
Great food and service with a smile. Also loved the cocktail list. Long and leisurely lunch. Thank you.
Wonderful food and service, lovely atmoshere and a great night out.
Sitting at the bar waiting for our table (we were early) we were entertained and educated by the Mixologist. And then one of the best meals I have had for a long time. It was hard to choose - always a good sign.
Everything was really well cooked and really enjoyable. Nothing disappointed. Will definitely go back soon.
Really, really great service, food - everything was brilliant.
This was a birthday meal and unfortunately the one thing I was looking forward to having (monk fish) was not available. We instead went for a roast and this was AMAZING! Couple of hiccups with the service were resolved with us not having to pay for first drinks. Can’t wait to go back 😊
Great service, excellent food. We had a wonderful relaxed Sunday lunch with friends. Great cocktails too!
Outstanding food and service. Came for my birthday and got a free, but small, pudding as well which was incredible. Smashed a champagne glass and the waiters were very kind about it also. Would recommend to anyone who's got the money for it because it is very very expensive
Such a shame, have been looking forward to taking my wife out for her birthday to the salt rooms for a while and sadly the service was very poor. The food and the venue was very good but felt ignored and had to get up to find a server on 2-3 occasions. Won't go into war and peace here but given the price premium I would be very reluctant to recommend to anyone.
Great meal great food would recommend would definitely come again
Excellent fish restaurant. Seemingly simple dishes very well executed.
I’ve eaten at The Salt Room quite a few times and as per usual the food was outstanding. The location of the restaurant is great and the waiting staff are always friendly and diligent. My one beef about this occasion was that I was forced to book an early lunch because there was no table for two available for 1300hrs or 1330hrs and then we were given a table in an almost empty restaurant right next to two other diners. The restaurant stayed pretty empty for around thirty-minutes. I didn’t think that the front desk had given enough thought about where to seat us and I didn’t appreciate being given the table we were offered. I could have asked for another, and on reflection I should have, but my partner didn’t want the fuss and I gave in. That said the food was amazing and we left content.
Finally! A fabulous restaurant in Brighton. Beautifully served fresh seafood and attentive& friendly service. Worth travelling up from London
Amazing food! Great service!
Excellent food great service great atmosphere will be Going back such friendly staff
We had such a lovely evening at the Salt Room. Staff were fantastic and friendly. Great food from around the area, Scallops in particular were great! Made our birthday celebration perfect!
Amazing food and excellent service. Strongly recommend the surf plate.
Great service and food. Have been here before and will definitely be back.
Lived up to expectations. Always wanted to dine here and chose our son’s graduation as the perfect reason to book. It was superb. The food and service were brilliant.
The staff have an astonishing attitude to the 12.5% discretionary service charge stated on your menus.
The 12.% gratuity is at the customer's discretion. This customer pays his bill with a debit/credit card and
pays a tip in cash. He does not wish to enter into any discussion with staff regarding the restaurant's
distribution of his cash.
very good fresh fish, perfectly cooked. try ousters and lobster, outstanding.
Hard to fault, a lovely meal, high-quality food, friendly service and a lovely setting.
Delicious food, great views of sea, friendly local staff.
The food and service are always great, great seafood lovingly prepared respecting the great ingredients, we've never had a bad meal here.
