The food was very good as was the service. The only thing that stops me from giving this 5 stars was the wine. We ordered the Malbec which turned out to be a 2019 which was just a bit too young for our taste. We would happily pay more for good wine so would like to suggest a little more choice on good wines please.

The food is beautiful here and really attentive service too! Lots of effort made to make sure we enjoyed our meal and we were given the option to try wine so we could make sure we liked it before buying. Couldn’t recommend more! Will definitely visit again. It was quite loud and hard to hear especially with masks but the waiters did everything they could to help us communicate better!

Overall is brilliant, except our main dish (fish of the day) could be more flavour than what we had, but it’s good with the sauce they provide. And really good services and ambience

This is a nice restaurant which serves interesting and good food, however it is quite noisy, so if you are looking for a place with low noise levels it is not for you.

WE came on Sunday and unfortunately the roast had already sold out even though we were there at 18:30 and so we shared the sea bass which was lovely but not enough for two people. We went to Nandos after as we were still hungry. I've been looking forward to going to your restaurant for such a long time so it was a little disappointing.

I cannot fault anything, from the staff to the food. My favourite meal is a roast and I can honestly say it was the best I have ever had. We had a lovely waitress, she made our visit even better. We will be back x

The food was absolutely first class. Delicious. The waiters were fantastic. All very clean and well organised for social distancing. Only thing I did notice not having been for a few years is that the inside is looking a little tired these days.

Generally a very good experience that would be repeated
Special thanks to everyone there

Food was delicious, waiter knew the menu well particularly what was gluten free. It’s a great spot on the sea front but I was a little disappointed as I’d asked for a table with a sea view but on arrival we had one which was set back and a step DOWN from the front tables so we could see nothing. Nevertheless it was a good meal and I probably would go again.

The staff were very welcoming and cheerful and the restaurant had sufficient customers to provide a bit of a buzz without it being noisy.
The menu was somewhat limited but the quality of the dishes more than makes up for that. The service was attentive without being intrusive. All in all an excellent, but not cheap , experience.
Being situated on the seafront it would likely make an excellent summer diner venue.

Starters were the best part of the meal, good choice and very tasty. loved the pigs cheek and the scallops. Main course and Desert was average, a little disappointed considering the reputation of the Salt room.

Most surprised about the cost of a G+T - 12.50 seems a bit steep. Total for 2 people at £150 (we only had a carafe of wine too) doesn' t compare to the quality of food, experience and service of some of the other fantastic restaurants in Brighton.
