Many friends had recommended Rocksalt so we went there with heightened expectations. Oh dear. Stunning surroundings, wonderful views and style oozing out of each length of illuminated purple velvet. But this style fest was unfortunately not enough to compensate for the simply appalling standard of food that was served in this epitome of style over content. It may be that... More

I visited Rocksalt to celebrate a friend's birthday. We all opted for the lunchtime menu and 2 of us ordered the broad bean with goats cheese starter. When it came it was actually the husk of the broad bean deep fried in batter with the beans and goats cheese on the top. In all my years of eating in restaurants... More

We arrived at Rocksalt without a booking looking for a late lunch due to Eurotunnel being delayed. Thé maître'd found us a table and we were so happy because this was a delightful lunch perfectly prepared and very fresh fish and the crispest house dry white wine. I could have been arrested for loitering in the men's room because the... More

Fantastic venue, definitely will return and really great value for excellent standard of food. Had assumed the prices would be extortionate but this is NOT the case. I particularly enjoyed the range of bottled cider and tasted varieties that I'd never had before. My friend and I had a fantastic time and hats off to the staff who made us... More

Sunday lunch a la carte, the best meal we have enjoyed for a long time. Not a single dish skipped a beat. Meat as good as the fish dishes and the fish dishes were brilliant. Who knew potted shrimp could taste that good? And the bread was superb, i actually could have just eaten that all afternoon at a push.... More

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. 30 mins. early to meet friends so popped to the upstairs bar for a pre drink. Great service-couldn't make up my mind on the wine but was offered tastings--Very rare!-but in the end the restaurant benefitted since I ordered a bottle downstairs to accompany the meal (Momo Sauvignon-£29.50). The welcome from the young female staff... More

The Rocksalt is on Folkestone Harbour, floor to ceiling glass windows for a good view, and if you are sitting with your back to the view there are mirrors over the table to show the view. A nice touch! The food is excellent, but pretty pricy, a seafood sharing platter for two/three is £80! Having said that, there are special... More

Had an amazing evening here during the summer with my cousin. We hadn't seen each other in some time and wanted to make a special evening of it. The Rocksalt was certainly the place to make it special! The food is some of the greatest seafood I have ever experienced! The design of the restaurant is modern, cool and fabulous.... More
