Absolutely outstanding food and restaurant!

Also huge acknowledgment to Holly who looked after us and is a credit to the Restaurant. She was so lovely and attentive and made such a difference to the experience, often staff do not get the recognition they deserve and service can make or break a restaurant so had to give her a shout out!! Amazing

The Salt Room was for a number of years our favourite restaurant in Brighton but, with a new chef last year, the menu changed detrimentally and has stayed the same since then.
On this occasion, our first time there since they reopened after lockdown, we were shocked by how close the staff came to us, nobody wearing masks or visors, you would hardly know that restrictions were in place. The food was OK, average, and my main course of hake lacked texture, soft and sloppy. I doubt that we will be back for some time.

The a la carte menu has plenty of choice, the food was really excellent and well prepared. Good selection of wines by the glass. Service was adequate but I wish the staff were just a little tidier in appearance. Unfortunately our visit was spoiled by over loud, inappropriate music. The restaurant itself lacked atmosphere, it was too noisy and we weren't happy with the social distancing space.

Food was poor standard. Emailed the restaurant with feedback - no reply.

Service was slow and didn't care about the complaint RE the food. Bad value for money...many other restaurants with better more affordable food. Bland and chewy.

Ambience and service was lovely here with views out to the beach and water.
Starter of small fish tempura was lovely and crisp with a superb seaweed tartare sauce. Sourdough bread was ok but the miso butter was divine.
Both friends had the steak which was done really well. I had the lemon sole which was fresh and the spiced sauce was just right. The crispy potatoes were just amazing and could have had lots more!

You can’t get a much better venue on a sunny Monday evening than this.
Food was beautifully cooked, service was attentive without being OTT.
If you enjoy fish and seafood cooked with a modern twist you shouldn’t be disappointed.
We will return next time we’re in Brighton

Being a sunny and warm evening we choose the terrace. The food - as always superb! steak tartare with the sharing seafood platter followed by the cheese board (the local blue cheese which, according to a french waiter, was better than the french blue cheeses - praise indeed) with a couple of glasses of sauterne a great combination. Not cheap but highly recommended!

The Seafood platter was exceptional, and I've had a few, not padded out with cockles or whelks, all well cooked and good quality. Friendly service and well-spaced out tables ...

It was my partners birthday and we had already looked at the menu before going and decided on the Surfboard and omg what an amazing surprise that was when it came out. It was huge and so delicious and well presented.
We had a wonderful evening and can’t wait to come back.

The Salt Room is always great, the food is delicious and and very pleasing presented. The staff is very friendly and professional. We sat on the terrace which was lovely in the very warm weather. Everything is clean and the all the rules about social distance was in place. Have been coming to the Salt Room since it open, just wish I lived closer so we could go more often. Highly recommended the Salt Room.

An old regular, I stopped going before Covid when a delicately flavoured expensive fish, was utterly ruined by a huge pile of burnt sweet corn, etc. Advertised as coming with a bouillabaisse, this was completely lost in the burnt corn. Other things were piled on the fish but I've erased it from my mind. On that occasion, the starter wasn't cooked enough; raw batter, and the pudding was rock solid chocolate torte; impossible to put a fork into.

This being my first visit since or anywhere after Covid, I hoped for better. My tempura starter was delicious. The lemon sole was over cooked and again, the delicate flavour of the fish utterly lost in a great pile of what must have been, half a jar of capers and at least 2 large chopped gherkins, WITH curry oil???? Why? I refused the free champagne and pudding; so disappointed. I note that the manager used to run Terre a Terre and perhaps too much emphasis on non meat/fish ingredients is being encouraged. This is just not required.
