As a long time resident of Folkestone I'm ashamed to say this was my first visit to the Tavernetta. The welcome was lovely, the food was excellent and the atmosphere is spot on. No complaints other than leaving feeling very over-fed, great.

Beef stroganoff - proper lean well seasoned beef strips with onions and mushrooms in a creamy stroganoff sauce with rice, delicious. Strawberry rhoulard (home made) melted in the mouth. Attentive service and clearly very popular judging by the number of people coming in. ANC they cook till late. Recommended by a local and I'm glad I asked him for a... More

The lamb of course was pink as you had requested ...after your girlfriend had consumed three quarters of the lamb she said it was not to her liking ... And this after I came to... More

We went for an evening meal when staying in Folkestone. We asked for a light red wine the waiter said the house wine was very light. We tried the red and how right he was, he could have suggested an expensive wine. The starters was very good, when the mains were ordered, I asked for a change from the menu... More

Food is fairly decent, but the highlight of my dining experience there was the dessert selection. I was told they are all home-made, and I think it's better than any high street chain I have tried before. The £20 3 courses set menu suddenly became such a treat.

We booked literally at the last minute as another plan fell through. We were very pleased to be accommodated. The food and service is truly excellent and the price very reasonable. I remember this restaurant as being one of the best in the area from when I grew up there, and it is so nice to see that it is... More
