I used to often have lunch here over 9 years ago when I worked in Folkestone and today I found myself back in the town for business. Papas is every bit as good as I remembered really fresh fish, crispy light batter and hand cut chips served with a wedge of lemon and mushy peas. They offer a great choice... More

Took my fiancé here for a bit of lunch. I must say the fish was outstanding. The customer service was good and the prices were ok. I will definitely go here again.

The fish is fresh, beautifully cooked and the chips are superb examples of the proper traditional chip. Service is good and friendly and the prices are very reasonable. If a fish and chip supper (or lunch) is what you want, it is hard to imagine that you could find better,

Visiting Folkestone on a freezing cold January day, we found most of the restaurant/cafes on the seafront closed. So we wandered up the hill and found this gem on the main shopping street. It is not a big place but the selection of fish was amazing. The chips are what I would consider 'real' chips and it was a big... More

A bit expensive but the cod and chips was gorgeous. The drinks are over priced and small. The staff are welcoming and the restaurant is clean and homely. We paid £16.00 for cod and chips and chicken and chips.

Road trip to France with youngest son. Husband playing golf back home with eldest son. Stopping over in Folkestone after long drive and ferry tomorrow morning. So fine dining not really a priority. Papas is perfect for the occasion. We ate enough to sink a small ferry with a cup tea, orange juice and mushy peas on the side for... More
