Oh wow! This place is fantastic. Great food, perfect service. It's neither cheap nor ridiculously expensive. Really worth it for a lovely night out, especially if you stay at the Rocksalt rooms, which are literally a few seconds away. We will definitely be back.

We had heard of this restaurant and thought we would give it a try. Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Fairly busy, noisy, but lacking atmosphere. Food was nice but not worth the high prices. Think you are definitely paying a premium for the nice view of the harbour. Would not choose to go there again.

We live in Folkestone and have been to Rocksalt a few times. It's always been terrific for us, and yesterday was no exception. So, I would recommend it very highly. It's always a bit tricky when a big restaurant opens. There's an understandable tendency to want to re-invent the wheel, and to try and be a bit different. I think... More

This was our 4th visit to Rocksalt, and it gets better each time. The fish soup was terrific, perfectly served with Rouille and Gruyere, to follow I had the Cod fillet which was sublime and perfectly cooked. John started with the Sea bass, and followed this up with the Mackerel, both of which he said were amazing. The only dish... More

We live near Folkestone and therefore we feel entitled to say that much as we love it, it is looking a bit the worse for wear and is rather bereft of fine dining experiences. How wonderful then to have Rocksalt there on the harbour edge serving up an undoubtedly upmarket experience - wonderful food, wonderful views, excellent service in a... More

This is a special restaurant in a fantastic location! The staff are knowledgable and very professional. We arrived early so had cocktails upstairs before sitting down to eat! The decor is modern and there is a really nice feel to the place! I would definitely go for seafood considering the location! Definitely worth it for a special occasion!

This restaurant is great, the seafood dishes are delicious and dessert is a definite! Have also been for cocktails outside and the view and atmosphere is great. Quite pricy but worth it for a special occasion!

@Rocksalt_Kent @MarkSargey10 Great good as always last night but service really let the place down...apart from fantastic female maître d'. Staff not attentive to wine, not aware what they serve in terms of wines by glass or whiskys and one waiter verging on rude with trying to be too efficacious. Very young staff but their lack of life experience and... More
