We booked a Sunday lunch and were impressed with the meal and service. The three courses were all superb, and the service was efficient and courteous. We both had a fish main course which was cooked perfectly as were the side dishes (which were £3 extra each). The restaurant was very busy, which made the service received all the more... More

What an amazing location and restaurant! The design is modern and you can see the chefs working in the kitchen as soon as you come in! All very busy to prepare wonderful dishes... The restaurant is just in front of the harbour so low and high tides change a lot the panorama .They are specialised in seafood , of course... More

Ate here recently to celebrate my children's GCSE results and also took our 9 year old daughter. Although we had excellent food from the main menu, we were disappointed with the children's menu. Last time we brought our daughter the choice was as you would expect from a good restaurant, she opted for mussels with paprika chips (she was looking... More

Went for a light lunch upstairs ordered gammon egg and chips for two. It arrived promptly, however gammon was tough and had a strange taste, we persevered as the chips and egg were good however both of us gave up halfway through the ham. What we thought surprising was that even though we mentioned the problem to the waiter no... More

We had a family dinner at this restaurant and had a very happy experience. We enjoyed out drinks in the bar looking put over the harbour and then moved downstairs to our table which was in a good position to continue looking our at the views. Service was excellent and we were never hurried to make our minds up. The... More

We enjoyed our impromptu evening out at Rocksalt, made all the more fun by friendly, enthusiastic staff. The restaurant has a no music policy which is an incredibly rare treat, hugely appreciated by both of us. Excellent, artisan bread to start, which put us in a good mood before the mains. Fish pie outstandingly good. Lovely flavours and perfectly done... More

Can't fault the amazing view. Starter of cured sea bass was very nice, however the main of squid and pancetta was really dull - most of the squid was tasteless and the tiny amount of pancetta which I hoped would season the dish, tasted of nothing. Well presented, but it really needed the strong flavour to make the dish, but... More
