Extremely disappointed by this over hyped fishy flop. Poor value for money and average food at best.

Not the greatest visit to The Salt Rooms, a birthday surprise spoilt by a below parr menu choice plus the table service was fair,

One and only plus point the mackerel starter was probably the best I’ve had.

The John Dory cooked to perfection however the side slaw played 2nd fiddle

I have always recommended The Salt Room to friends and clients, this certainly won’t be the case based on this experience.

Food ok. Service awful. Asked about a wine, didn't have a clue and vegetarians do not eat fish

Good food but very loud and unpleasant environment. You have to shout to have a conversation which makes it annoying. Staff grumpy and seemingly unhappy to be there, starter arrived along with the main, unjustified service charge

This restaurant came recommend by a follower on Instagram. Clearly a popular place as reservations were hard to come by (be sure to book in advance). However we managed to get in for lunch.

Situated on the front you have amazing views of the sea.

Great ambience inside and out.

The team were very welcoming and on hand for anything you may of needed.

Food was exceptional with lots of choices. Combination of flavours and textures was perfect!

Would highly recommend this place. Great drinks, wine, food and service.

We were staying at a nearby hotel so passed everyday and each day they were busy which just shows how popular this place is. Be sure to visit!

The best meal I’ve had in a long time. Scallops were incredible, great flavours and cooked to perfection. The surfboard was really good, nice mix of different seafood and the aioli was out of this world. Lovely vibe in the restaurant too. It’s nice inside but not overly smart and the waitresses were lovely.

We came here for a birthday lunch and were not disappointed. The oysters were chilled and very fresh and the Surfboard we shared had a great mix of seafood with fries and salad. All the food was delicious and we'll happily come back.

Great food and great service but was freezing cold and windy. The outside area is nice but it’s like a wind tunnel. My food was cold after the 2nd or 3rd bite. It was great service though and the staff were really great considering how cold they must have been. I think we were just unlucky with the weather. If it had been warmer or less windy it would have made a massive difference

This is the place to go for the best tasting seafood and fish in Brighton, served beautifully.

Sat outside for lunch and the waiter service is very professional with good knowledge of the food and wine with high personal attention.

Sone of the chefs flavours in the food are so unusual, real dining experience that I highly recommend.

We will be back!

Great birthday meal on the terrace. Fantastic food and great service. The terrace is a bit noisy with the traffic but that's not the restaurant's fault. I loved it - have been before and will come back again.

We had a lovely afternoon on the Salt Room terrace. The food, service and ambience was excellent as always. All our fish dishes were cooked to perfection. The outside heaters worked wonders on a slightly chilly May afternoon. We look forward to returning very soon!

We loved our lunch at the Salt Room. The food, the service and the ambiance are of a high standard. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and professional. He anticipated our every need and was there when we needed him. The food was so good. I wanted everything on the menu, which rarely happens! We sat out on the terrace and although it was a rainy day we were perfectly warm and comfortable. I highly recommend this restaurant.
