We have often looked at Rocksalt and thought what a beautiful location however, as vegetarians we didn't go in as there didn't seem to be anything on the menu for us. Recently we noticed that a vegetarian section had been added to the menu so today we tried it along with two friends. We had the most wonderful lunch. The... More

The five of us, my wife, son Daughter-in-Law and Grandson had a fantastic lunch time meal here. Attentive yet discreet staff, superbly cooked food and not hurried at all and unlike some (!) restaurants you are not crammed in, you have plenty of room. The menu is wide ranging as is the wine list and I especially liked the fact... More

As the title suggests, my husband and i absolutely loved this restaurant. Clean, beautifully stylish yet not pompous and a very spacious restaurant. In the summer i can imagine it would have the most amazing view of the harbour but even on a freezing January night, the twinkly lights still make it look pretty. The menu is wide ranging, accessable... More

A very pleasant bar for a pre meal drink overlooking Folkestone harbour. Our meal was extremely tasty, fish pie and great fish and chips. Service was first rate, good atmosphere and spotlessly clean.

Wednesday lunchtime in mid January, so not packed, we enjoyed a very pleasant meal , with attentive but not intrusive service, we stuck with the set menu, which offered 3 choices for each of the three courses. Whilst the emphasis is on fish, there were also some interesting sounding proper vegetarian options also. The house White was vary acceptable, and... More

I'll keep this one brief, when you pay around 40 pounds for for a meal and then some for drinks it would be nice to eat something that you were unlikely to prepare at home. The restaurant was busy service was slow, the prawn cocktail was just that (with a hint of horeradish), Cod was unavailable, I had pan fried... More
