Expensive night out

This is a very smart place with lovely views an modern tasteful setting. We had a very well presented and cooked meal for our anniversary. Everything was extra and for two of us and for two courses each and a bottle of wine it was over £100 - it seemed a lot for what we had. The staff were polite... read more

As ever brilliant food, service and value for money. I've been here several times and it never disappoints. The sun was shining over the harbour, the drink was flowing and the food was very good.

A slightly offhand welcome was disappointing (we had arrived fifteen minutes early, which they couldn't cope with) as was the degree of heat in both restaurant and the upstairs bar on an already warm day. However, once sitting at a table looking out over the (drained) Folkestone harbour our spirits rose. First, through a great wine list with some genuine... More

As a child, I went to Folkestone every year with my parents and remember thinking that it was a bit run down as a resort. However, Rocksalt is just one of the improvements made to the town since I last visited. It's a stunning, modern building overlooking the harbour and offers an excellent standard of food. All the staff we... More

Been to Rocksalt a number of times now, I've eaten various dishes from the Menu but I must say the seafood seems to be outstanding every time we've visited, I love the view of the old harbour with all the fishing boats a real heritage view of our wonderful part of the coast all within a well designed building with...

We went here for an early evening meal and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive but not overpowering. If you are looking for cheap meal and wine you won't get it here. What you will get is a great choice of food and wine. The night we went it was Asian evening, so we both went for a... More

Pop in here mid week on way to the euro tunnel. We had a couple of pre dinner drinks in the bar upstairs. Some interesting drinks and the barman was friendly and knew his stuff. The Japanese lager was a nice find. The restaurant wasn't overly busy but had a nice atmosphere all the same. Service was prompt and the... More

I enjoyed lunch here - the third time I've visited and it's always been an enjoyable experience, there is a good choice of menu, well sourced ingredients, great staff who really look after you without hanging around and being annoying and reasonable prices for such a good venue.

We were recommended this restaurant , coming from Dartford we wouldn't like to be let down. On the contrary, very friendly staff and as Predominately a fish restaurant we went precisely for that. A shellfish platter for two to share. Absolutely stunning quality. Nice touches, lovely.

Busy and buzzing on a Saturday lunchtime at 1.30. Recommend you book. The restaurant is designed so that most tables get a lovely view across the harbour. Tables are well spaced. Service was friendly and relaxed. Good wine and beer choices. The food was attractive and tasty. Not cheap especially as veg is extra with many choices and there is... More
