Very, very noisy. Main meals come with very little which bumps the bill up. Great desserts & a highlight. Good for people watching which is just as well as you can’t hear what your companion is saying.
The food was outstanding very well thought out delicious cuisine. Service was very good, and felt like a special occasion.
Second time here in recent months and it keeps getting better. The lunch for the October Best promotion was incredible value. Liked it so much I’ve booked for lunch again next week.
We had a really superb meal at The Salt Room... A warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere welcomed us the moment we entered the restaurant. Strong cocktail & wine selection... Fresh oysters... A fantastic whole Brill to share with all the trimmings that was caught that day. The only misstep was the mussels & clams that came with the Brill - the mussels were great but the clams were very, very gritty. However, this was more than forgiven overall with the high quality of the meal, impeccable service and lovely environment. I highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Nice place, with good food but very limited options for pregnant ladies.
Disappointed to find that 2 of the 3 options on the "October Best" menu were unavailable when we arrived! Whilst there was a substitute offered for the meat dish, nothing was offered for the fish replacement.
We then decided to order from the "regular" menu and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed my roast cauliflower main course - absolutely delicious!
We went for a £20 per diner offer and left with a £120 plus bill. Well that’s no surprise but it would have been nice to have felt full for that.
I started with a beetroot salmon dish and my wife had goats cheese. Both were delicious but literally a few mouthfuls so we got bread too, which was nice and reasonably priced.
We both went for a main course of cod with artichokes and samphire. It was nice, but not knock out, even a little bland. I guess the chef didn’t want to suppress the fish’s flavour but overall I was a bit underwhelmed. My wife enjoyed.
Dessert was a medley of four cakey products which were fine. It’s just I could have eaten another main course instead.
A negroni on arrival was very nice and an Italian white nice but not IMO £46 nice.
Service was friendly and helpful. Possibly a little too involved - I like to fill my own glass.
Overall I enjoyed it with reservations. I would go back anticipating a £200 + for two. The offer might be ok for lunch but not enough grub for dinner.
The food was really lovely but is fairly expensive, hence why we visited for a special occasion. The menu is quite varied with great flavours and combinations but obviously only offers a range of fish and few grilled meats. The restaurant itself is very nice with ample seating and a scenic view of Brighton beach. (Our waitress was slightly moody but may just have been having a bad day!)
Great vibe. Amazing French waiter who could sell ice to eskimos. A bit gutted that the wine was at least 250% markup. Apart from that an amazing meal.
We return at least once every year and are a always very happy with the food, wine recommendations and staff attendance in general.
The Salt Room tickets every single box and I will return many more times I'm sure! Perfect for a special evening treat or for lunch.
We were very disappointed with our meal at the Salt Room. The portions were very small and the fish was undercooked. We had intended to have the three course lunch as part of Octoberbest but cut our losses after two and left, extremely hungry, and , we felt, overcharged.
Amazing view. Nice venue. Food was ok. Starters were good, mains and sweet were not very outstanding.
Really tasty food- the sharing roast was delicious and great value! Would love to see some more classic desserts on the menus!
8 of us had the most delicious meal after the Brighton 10 Mile Run. The service was great, food delicious and view amazing.
There was some issue about whether we could get our requested sea view - but they delivered. So very happy indeed.
Lovely food and good atmosphere.Great service even when busy
Great location on the seafront, beautiful fish and seafood dishes, quite noisy on a Saturday night as the tables are turned regularly, but overall excellent.
Bit disappointed with the sharing sirloin, asked for medium, came very medium rare and only 6 half slices on the bone. Wouldn’t order again. Not keen on a two hour slot, for five of us. It felt very rushed.
I have been to the Salt Room on a number of occasions for lunch and have enjoyed every visit. The food is beautifully prepared, cooked and presented and the staff are always attentive and efficient. I particularly like the light and airy space and the ambience. This time we had a baby with us and we were given a table suitable for us with a view and away from most other diners. It was a very pleasant lunch.
The only issue I have is the need to have background music, which was turned down as soon as we asked, but could have been intrusive.
It’s a very nice restaurant.
Fantastic seafood, especially shellfish. We had the Surfboard, and there's nothing like having a lovely selection of shellfish cooked on a charcoal fire! Wonderful wine list, beautiful spot opposite the seafront, lovely ambience, smart and elegant decor but still casual and relaxed.
Food not very good considering the price. Not many ingredients used. Infact the plate was very boring. I like to be wowed with food but this was not the case. Very large piece of fish with not much else. Also the starter of octopus was cut very chunky. Would have preferred it much finer. The service was ok. Some staff were very attentive, others not so. Our waiter didn’t go through any specials and didn’t ask what sauce I would like out of the two choices for with my main. Pudding looked amazing but was all fur coat, no knickers! Won’t be returning to the Salt Rooms.
As always a wonderful experience
Superb food and service
We enjoyed a really lovely evening at The Salt Room, food service and ambiance was excellent
Staff was lovely and the food was good, but the acoustics were awful. Impossible to have a conversation without shouting. Add some fabrics around the place to solve this. Lunch time/early dinner on the terrace in warm weather would avoid this issue.
We went here as a small group of 5 for my birthday after attempting to go a few times-it was recommended to us and we can now recommend it to anyone else! The food was beautifully delicious, the service was very good and the ambience is great- very buzzy and informal for such high quality food at a reasonable cost.
Good range of drinks but the wine list is very expensive-the only criticism really but the house wine is perfectly acceptable as would be expected. We had a great evening.
We had a lovely meal for four with great service. Altogether, a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thought the sea bass to share was over-priced, but the food was overall of good quality, well-cooked and tasty. Particularly enjoyed the tempura oysters. We will be back.....when we’ve saved up!
Very good service we had a lovely bubbly women serve us, she made us feel very welcone and just generally very good service. Food was great
The inadequate size of King prawns being given but they changed it once we asked them. Fish for two to share is undercooked and have to go back. When it came back, it didn't look appetizing but taste good. Such a shame!
Stylish spot for a special birthday lunch, outside table on gorgeous terrace. Great seafood choices. Recommend!
had a great night and the food was excellent as always.
Our experience was incredibly enjoyable. Beautiful food you have enjoyed before you even taste it. A feast for the eyes and taste buds. Thank you Francesco for your attentive service. A special day made better..well done Salt Rooms.
A very special place for a special celebration. We were very well looked after without being too intrusive.
On an anniversary dinner, we were both really impressed with our mains but the desserts were average at best (toasted marshmallows were raw) and our side of chips were hard in the middle. Really nice ambience and good service but food was lacking overall for the price.
As always a lovely evening at the salt room , celebrating a double 10 year wedding anniversary ,we had requested a table with a view to enhance our joint special evening .Food was lovely and a great ambience .
Once again the salt room delivered lovely cocktails, fabulous food, our waiter was fantastic as were all the staff see you soon
Fantastic service, very attentive!
Food was very fresh and delicious
Amazing service with a great chap but I don't know his names. So helpful and knowledgable about the food.
12.5% service is a bit steep but happy if it does actually get split amongst all the staff.
The restaurant was way too pricey for what it was. The food is not the refined. It is really annoying to pay so much money for food that is just OK.
The staff where fantastic however the food was greatly overpriced and lacked flavor
Perfect food and good service. we had afternoon tea and it was excelent
