If you like sea food, this is a great option. The food is original and very well done.
The atmosphere is relaxed but still classy.

The first time we went we got the steak and loved it. We were told they were better with seafood, so we ordered the recommended monk fish. The piece we got and the presentation of it was disappointing. They did apologise and give us a larger piece, but really the taste of it wasnt very good, not what i would expect for the cost. On the other hand, my family got the steak, which actually was better than the fish. So they may actually be bettwr with steak vs fish it seems. The service was great though.

Second visit for afternoons tea and it was as good as the previous visit.
A minor hiccup about our reservation(a la caste or afternoon tea) but the staff resolved the issue without fuss.
We opted for the gin and tonic choice and the food was delicious - both the savoury selection and the sweet one.
We will definitely visit again but suggest making a confirmatory phone call if you are looking for afternoon tea rather than a la carte

we thought the menu was poor having eaten at other recommended fish restaurants i,e the mussel and crab at tuxford in nottinghamshire which as a much more comprehensive menu we thought the food when it came was'nt cooked especially well and was bland for what we had ordered we thought it was quite expensive so when we come down to brighton again we won't be eating at the salt room

We loved the outside room and would have been less happy in the inside room. Everything was fine and the service perfect until it tailed off towards the end of the meal. We will go again and hope to be able to give it 5 stars all around.

I’ve been here before and always had a good experience.
This time not so great .
The waitress was lovely but no quite on the ball
They forgot my drink order
They were helpful with our food order as we had so many intolerances and allergies at our table
The food came out . They failed to tell us the side vegetables of green beans were going to be cold.
They were left
I ordered Cod which came a few minutes after everyone else’s food.
I got Trout.
I said to a waitress this wasn’t Cod. She said they had run out and trout was the replacement. They forgot to tell when I ordered.
They asked if I wanted to replace it for something else. A bit late when all our guests were already eating.
I declined.
They said they would take the drink I just ordered off the bill.
We paid but made the point when leaving to tell them that good customer service would be if someone is given food they didn’t order you really shouldn’t charge them for it.
Won’t be going back

I’ve been here before I really did enjoy it but this time I felt the food was not the same. We had nothing until after we had finished our starter to wipe our hands I made my own bowl of water to rinse our hands whilst peeling our prawns. The. The plates for our food were so hot the staff were worried about us burning ourselves they were that hot that they cooked our steak which we had ordered medium rare to well done making it dry and tough we didn’t have lots of drink and the food cost £312 then they wanted a £40 service charge we had shared a £50 starter so it was £250 for 5 meals ? Which I have had better. It was such a shame as I do love the restaurant and the staff are so lovely just felt the food let it down a bit this time especially since you could have done yourself arm with the dinner plates never mind

We like to have the seafood platter and only the hot version was available , it would be nice to have the cold version as a choice but it was still outstanding.

table server very abrupt and came across a bit rude
unfortunately another server split the whole soup over us (not really her fault - the serving dish was a bit precarious)
red meat not cooked as requested, and manager challenged the customer on this
bill appropriately reduced, but the experience was a real let down
