First class in every way. Extensive menu of locally sourced produce. Therefore, quality, locality, sustainability and provenance all relate to Rocksalt. Food perfectly prepared. The fresh fish is delivered daily from local fishing boats. The meat also arrives daily from the local countryside and marshlands. Every table has a clear view of Folkestone harbour. The decor is of a high... More

We have eaten here 6 times now and this restaurant is consistently inconsistent . Small portion with big prices & impersonal waiting staff are always the order of the day, however, sometimes the food has been good but half the time it has been mediocre.Which is a shame as it is definitely the smartest restaurant around with a great bar...

Beatiful resturant and gorgeous food however this means nothing when you can't get the waiting staff to take your order or being you drinks Basic waiting staff know that a menu on the table means the order hadn't been taken and that empty glasses need drinks. After having to wave my hands around to gain attention after being left me... More

We last went here for the Autumn lunch special,and it was,great choices including a good quality glass of wine. The staff here always give you a lovely welcome and look after you right the way through, Location is great,nice views,comfortable seating,and never feel rushed. They also do great bar food and best cocktails ever,worth a visit.

Went here on a Friday night so the restaurant was busy but the service and food were still excellent. Starters included seafood soup and seabass - both were lovely. My husband then had squid for his main course whilst I had lemon sole - again both dishes were delicious. You have to order sides separately which does increase the cost... More

Great value. Great food. Eclectic wine list. Buzzing. Off the beaten track. Ducks' hearts an unusual hit on the table. Baked Camembert interval perfect. Slight miss with very fatted pork belly. Fish excellent.

Visited on a very busy Saturday night, when both the bar and the restaurant were full and consequently very noisy. The staff coped very well, though, and were friendly and helpful. The food was good. The setting was beautiful. We will return, but will probably go mid week next time.

Many thanks for your review. The weekends can often be extremely busy and noisy! We would suggest a mid week meal would definitely be quieter. We do hope to see you again soon,. The Rocksalt Team More

The best thing to happen to Folkestone in many a long year. Baked mussels with smoled bacon and cider such a subtly flavoured dish. A dover sole cooked to perfection. Puds to die for. All the Rocksalt people are smiling, competent and offer just the right amount of attention. We drove from London as a result of an earlier visit... More

We chose the seafood platter and it was massive we had to change tables to accommodate it. Crab oysters lobster prawns clams and more all very nice. I would have chosen something different if I could turn back time but only because it was so much to eat and so many other choices on the menu. Very busy restaurant and... More
