Absolutely delightful meal, bubbles & staff! I would 100% recommend this restaurant & its sister pub/Resturant The Duke William. The food is top notch & the views are a must see! & when you are done in the Resturant head upstairs for the amazing cocktails!

Great venue. A little lost at night though. Had Salmon which was average. Cauliflower soup delicious, but cold. Service was not as expected. Pleasant and polite, just a little more efficiency needed for a restaurant of this supposed Calibre. Several glasses were dropped and drinks spilt on customers. These things happen, but make up for it.

I booked Sunday lunch for my mother, my three children and myself for my son's 11th birthday. When I booked online I put in the special info section that we were 2 adults and 3 children. Upon arrival the staff could not have been more lovely, and our table was even ready with an Etch-A-Sketch. Two of my children ordered... More

I know it's January and things are always slightly feel downturned and unexciting but not here. From the moment we walked through the door and confused everyone with our mis-matched bookings and half baked ideas of what we were and weren't doing...we were sat down at a table with a beautiful view of the harbour ( well it would have...

I've never been blown away by the food in Rocksalt. The venue is excellent, the location is great and it should be brilliant but it just never quite hits the real heights it should do for me. We had Sunday lunch recently and whilst the food was pretty good, the service was a bit rubbish to be honest. It was... More

Dinner at Rocksalt was one of my highlights of 2016. Which says something as I'm vegetarian and our home is vegetarian. However, my OH eats fish when we go out and I wanted to experience dinner with friends and not carp (sorry!). Service was attentive, the food was beautifully cooked and presented. We sat near the French windows and enjoyed... More

A recent visit was completely spoilt by the very poor service experienced: very slow, inattentive, error in the bill, all coupled with a waitress who seemed to think sarcasm is an appropriate response to requests to be served. Normally service is pretty good here so not sure why it let itself down on this last trip. A real shame as... More

Food is very good, but not as outstanding as I would have expected from a TV chef. Can't fault ingredients or the use of fresh local produce, unlike another local establishment that isn't as Grand as it thinks. I can't quite put my finger on it but the main dining area needs to capture the fun and relaxed atmosphere of... More

Lovely restaurant, we thought the menu was a bit lacking in variety. The food was good, but not stunning, lacked a bit on the herbs on the main course. The little touches were missing also did not need 2 skate wing, quality not quantity please. not fine dining. Enjoyable evening,

Thank Norman237
