Delicious cocktails!

Come here for some cocktails with friends for my birthday and had a wonderful time.. Staff were very friendly and the cocktails were Delicious and not too expensive! (I was expecting to pay a lot more!) I like that there is no smoking in the terrace and what a view! Next time I would love to try... read more

Another beautiful meal at Rocksalt this time we took out teenage child and all had a fabulous time. Sublime food and very attentive service .... Was a little hot in the restaurant but the staff opened the doors and we watched a great storm out to see... We'll be back soon

We visited this restaurant for the first time to celebrate a birthday and wedding anniversary. When we made the booking, we asked for a table by the window so as to enjoy the view of the harbour. We arrived approx 30 minutes earlier than the booking but the table was available and we were made to feel very welcome. All... More

Turned up here at 9 30 without a reservation and was told about half hour wait for a table and so we had a few drinks in the upstairs bar while we waited. It was very plush! The bar staff were all young lads very experienced in cocktail making! I have never seen such a vast cocktail menu and not... More

When I read the lunch menu, I thought "messed-up food - too many ingredients in each dish" but actually my fears were unfounded. I would give this cheerful, unpretentious restaurant 5 stars for charming, polite and helpful staff, plus location. The food was good, although I could not really recommend the rather insipid, fairly flavourless brownie ice-cream. We waited an... More

On a lovely summer's day a gem of a place, lovely view, friendly and helpful staff and attractive decor but then it goes downhill. We arrived at 12.15 (unintentionally) but were told we couldn't order before our allocated time of 12.45 (2 tables in the restaurant), had a nice drink on the terrace upstairs then it took ages to order...

The location is great, but small portions and expensive. Very good service, but you do pay for the view.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here with my family, and thought the view over the harbour, food and service was very good. We enjoyed the taramasalata, broad bean hummus (very good) and pork crackling to start - delicious! Followed by battered cod, creamed lobster & smoked coley ‘thermidor’ and the rest of us opted for the tankard of grilled prawns... More

I had been desperate to eat here for ages. I guess I am just more particular as I eat all over the world. The service and setting was spot on and the drinks menu in the bar and wine list in the restaurant were superb. The food was good but not overwhelming and had I not had family with me... More
