Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

After working in Lowestoft for last 3 months we booked Rocksalt dining room for a colleagues birthday. We had an exceptional meal and the service was second to none. The staff member was passionate about the food and drink served.

Genuinely this has been my best meal I have had in Lowestoft . Between the six of us dining, we tried a variety of food and drinks which were all excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant to Seafood and Steak lovers.

Everything about our recent visit was wonderful, the surroundings, service and of course the food. The front of house manager and chef were passionate about providing an amazing service alongside quality ingredients and this was certainly delivered. Not overpriced and worth a visit. Definitely recommend, will be going back soon.

Stopped in on our way back from a few days away. We do like a pier and this seemed to be the nearest we could get while avoiding the arcade machines.
Our little boy had his heart set on a milkshake and asked the waiter (manager) if they did them. He said no, but was sure he could rustle something up. Shortly a sundae cup full of shaken pink milk with squirty cream and a strawberry on top arrived. Our boy was made up! At gone 7 in this quite fancy looking place (not white table cloth fancy but done very nicely; comfortable and modern) we weren't sure how welcome kids would be bit felt quickly reassured.
We weren't massively hungry and like to share so we ordered a few small plates; bollibasse (mackerel, clams, lobster and scallops in a delicious tomato broth) clams in rich cream sauce with bacon and wild garlic (nice seasonal suprise) and mackerel with crispy bacon, apple and rhubarb. All were fresh, tasty and very generous portions. Liberal garnishes of samphire was an extra treat! Bread was complimentary, fresh and served with some interesting dips.
Drinks were very reasonably priced, even the cocktails (though we didn't try them). It is nice to have a choice of draught beers in a restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised by the bill and would definitely recommend Rocksalt for well priced, fresh seafood and friendly service.

Although living not far away this was our first visit. The four of us were very impressed.
The restaurant has two areas, one part more casual & the other nice seat covering & table setting. We had a lovely welcome & good service.
The food was lovely. The chef uses good quality ingredients. From the lovely bread through all the courses we had. Super presentation along with good food.
The house wine was excellent & the white wine was chilled just as we like it. It’s
surprising how some places can’t manage that.
The price is good for the quality of the food

We all agreed we would be back.

Visited mid week in February, unsurprisingly quiet but the quality of the food was amazing (sea bass with samphire) and they make a great porn star martini cocktail :-)
