Hi there, whilst our visit to the restaurant was ok, there were definitely some areas that could improve.

The restaurant wasn't overly busy and once seated we had to wait a little too long to order some drinks. We also noticed that tables weren't monitored closely enough to know the needs of each table, we had two visits from staff member in a matter of minutes asking how we were, we had full drinks and had not long ordered, so we were fine. Then when we needed new drinks and were trying to get the attention of a staff member, no one was even glancing our way. We also felt the staff were chatting a little too much and should have provided more attention to their guests needs.

The food, was good, my beetroot ravioli was absolutely fantastic, it was really nice. However the steak received by another on our table was cold, nice, but cold.

The expectation we had coming into Redsalt was fairly high, we had heard great things and were looking forward to our dinner. Whilst the venue is nice, the staff were nice and the food was nice, there was no standout experience in our opinion. In saying this though, it wouldn't have taken much for our experience to be 5 star.

We would eat at Redsalt again if we are ever nearby, hopefully we were just there on an 'off night. Hoping this feedback is received in a constructive way, the restaurant is still a great place, i always think its best to give honest feedback so businesses and others are aware.

Disappointed with the kids spaghetti bolognese. It tasted like it was cooked with BBQ sauce not tomato sauce. An easy recipe that you would think this type of establishment would get correct. Otherwise, our main meals were nice. The Little dessert of 4 was a bit over rated and didn't offer a range of flavour. Fine if you like chocolate. Service was excellent and staff took the child's meal back with no problems.

We had booked a romantic and pretty expensive get-away for the weekend. It happens very rarely when you have been married for 18 years and have two kids. We were staying in a villa and were looking forward to an intimate dinner for two.

We were hoping for something special in Redsalt, but it felt like we just in a nice diner/canteen somewhere. Not a five star restaurant! The restaurant was brightly lit, had no ambiance, it wasn't busy, which was nice. the food served was nice but mediocre. Not as as good as its relatively expensive price-tag. The steak was a bit bland and the sauce served with it a bit runny and watered down. The fish, that I had was lovely and the portion was just right!

Seafood buffet was a BIG let down. Advertised as a Graze & Repeat but the options were limited & not very inviting. Salmon was overcooked, squid undercooked. Dessert buffet a huge let down all items tasteless & horrible. Kingfish sashimi the only highlight.

Very disappointed with this ‘restaurant’.
It is advertised as a fine dining experience, but it’s very sloppy.
I ordered a rack of lamb and was told I could not get it rare, just pink. However, other people I was dining with could order a rare steak.
The ‘rack of lam’ was just two cutlets that had not been separated. Generally when you order a rack of lamb it is butterflied.
They forgot several different courses and we had to wait a VERY long time for the food to come out.
The waitress was a little rude, kept sloshing our wine everywhere when she poured it.
Overall a bad experience.

The two of us came as a girls night away to enjoy a quiet and yummy meal, which is exactly what we got. We loved the relaxed feel, especially as the sun was setting. The service was attentive and friendly, and wine top ups were perfectly timed. Both the Liver and Prawn entrees were delicious, though I believe that the prawn dish could have done with 4 instead of 3, considering the amount of brioche on the other plate. We both loved our steaks, which were cooked perfectly, and commented on how generous the mash serving was. The desserts were decadent, delicious and perfectly presented. Overall the experience was lovely and memorable. We have already recommended it to lots of people, and will surely be back.

Some of the staff were very abrupt with us.
We had booking at 7:30pm on a Thursday night.
Ordered 2 course set menu and it took 45min for our first course to arrive, desert arrived at 9pm. No appoligies offered until we went to pay. We did not go there again for dinner for the rest of our stay.
For me I was expecting fine dinning but it is not. May have miss read the blurb. Food was good but not what I expected.

Stayed at the hotel and booked dinner at Redsalt. A little bit hit and miss, the entrees were good especially the chicken liver parfait. For main meal the medium rare steak was closer to blue and had to be returned. The same meat was then re cooked on the grill leaving it a little tough after a second cook. Desserts were nice. Wouldnt' recommend it as a must try but wouldn't tell anyone not to go either.

Disappointing. My husband asked for a medium rare steak and it was well done. I asked for the fish meal on the set menu (which sounded lovely and the reason that I picked the set menu) and I was given the fish of the day and it was just a piece of salmon, two cooked cherry tomatos and a bit of lettuce. Our waitress wasn't very friendly and didn't know much about the menu.
