Located on the harbour, they make the best of the location with large windows overlooking the boats. The restaurant was very busy even on a Thursday night so clearly a go to place in Folkestone. The food had a good selection of fish and seafood dishes as you might expect but also catered for meat lovers. We chose Dover sole,... More

One of the best restaurants outside of London I think I've ever been to. The service was prompt, polite and friendly. The atmosphere was good, the place was just starting to get busy shortly after we we seated for dinner. The views would have been superb if it had been sunny and the tide in, but no one can control... More

It's a while since we last dined at Rocksalt so it's worth a new review, especially as we had dined a la carte at dinner on Tuesday rather than the brilliant lunches which have been our usual experiences. The food continues to be excellent. Whilst it's clear that a lot of the food continues to be locally sourced and probably... More

We booked a Sunday lunch and were impressed with the meal and service. The three courses were all superb, and the service was efficient and courteous. We both had a fish main course which was cooked perfectly as were the side dishes (which were £3 extra each). The restaurant was very busy, which made the service received all the more... More

The restaurant is just in front of the harbour so low and high tides change a lot the panorama .They are specialised in seafood , of course... More

Ate here recently to celebrate my children's GCSE results and also took our 9 year old daughter. Although we had excellent food from the main menu, we were disappointed with the children's menu. Last time we brought our daughter the choice was as you would expect from a good restaurant, she opted for mussels with paprika chips (she was looking... More

We were lucky enough to be part of our fair moly birthday celebration. We had lunch in a separate section which included a balcony overlooking the harbour. Fantastic views and wonderful food. Not cheap but great for a special occasion. Coney also did lovely non alcoholic cocktails. Could recommends end the Harbour Crush! The staff were very helpful, pleasant and... More
