We visited The Salt Room for my Mother's birthday, and they had this marked on the booking to greet us when we arrived. We had a lovely window table and the service was very attentive throughout. The food was simply incredible and they catered brilliantly for my dairy free requirements, with our server clearly having full knowledge of the menu and ingredients. I cannot fault the food, the service, or the atmosphere in the restaurant. I would definitely visit again.

We had lunch from the set menu. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. We had a table next to the window so l would try and get one of those if you’d like a sea view as some of the others are much further back.

My partner and I looked up after tasting the mains, locked eyes and exclaimed a simple, simultaneous, wow. Such craft and skill to elevate the humble fish to such epicurean delights.
The Sole was never overpowered by the flavour packed sauce, if it was a sauce, more a clever side stew I guess. Delicate and generous enough to let the fish shine through, so fresh, so elegant.
It's a lovely space and clearly a go to must in Brighton.
Brilliant.

I don't think the food is as good as it used to be. We had the sharing platter roast and although the meat and gravy was lovely, the potatoes were dry. We also had the beside the sea dessert, which is their signature dessert priced at £18 for two. We've had this before, but sadly this time around it didn't even come close to how good it used to be. I'd go as far to say it was a bit stale in terms of some of the sweets. Kids eat free under 7 and in all honesty the food was good for our little one. The service was exceptional. Just such a shame about our meal.

Went to the Salt Room to celebrate hubbys birthday and were fortunate to be able to sit outside as it was a warm sunny day.

We had lunch there which was perfect, gorgeous varied menu and lovely service, attentive but not imposing and not rushed, I had the monkfish which was exceptional and hubby had the halibut, we had starters too and a Tour of the Pier which was great fun although very sweet - not a criticism but just beware.....

We both said we would definitely go back and the blankets provided outside if it gets chilly are very welcomed.

Had a really lovely time, thank you.

An early mistake with our order was rectified immediately and graciously.
Our waiter Ross was very attentive, professional and warm as were the other members of the team, most importantly the fish was superb, presented and cooked perfectly which is no small feat with a full terrace on a busy Saturday lunch. Really worth trying the Basque wine also, all in all a lovely and memorable afternoon well spent, a “must do” in Brighton.

Shan’t be coming back. Food was mediocre, tables were sticky and first bottle of wine ( which was changed foc. ) was not very palatable . We mentioned our dissatisfaction to the staff who were sympathetic and agreed that the decor was shabby made no comment on the food and were very obliging in changing the wine . For the price I would have expected a far better meals. Probably the worst we have had in Brighton

Good seafood. The seafood platter was fresh and delicious. It was the second time we came. The steak last time was really good but this time was a let down, lots of tendons! Interestingly though there is no lobster in the platter nor the menu at all. Desserts were good too. Nice presentation, nice to the eyes and to the taste buds.
