Papas has become a tradition for us. A nostalgic day trip over the channel, lovely walks along the Kent coast, browsing through Folkestone city centre, topping it all off with fish and chips at Papas in the evening. This time was no different. I love the food, the flexibility of the staff (there were 11 of us...) and the customer... More

Once or twice a year we pop over from the continent for a couple of days to enjoy the English coast. Fish and chips is for us a 'must' because we don't get it in Belgium, where we live. We wan't an excellent plate of f&c. We have never (after about 10 visits) been dissapointed, the food is good the... More

Best in town, can't beat them. A good choice menu, and being a small eater I decide from the childrens' menu with no problem. Always cooked fresh to order, and REAL chips!

Forget the stereo type of fish and chips. No grease in sight. The toilets are spotless! The restaurant is immaculate. This obviously sets a high expectation for the staff and food. The staff are magic. Nothing too much trouble. The food. Awesome is probably an understatement. For someone who really does not like fish and chips. I went for a... More

A modern take on fish and chips to eat in or take away. Traditional fare is available but also you can have a reasonable glass of wine, beer and I wholeheartedly recommend the salt and pepper squid and the homemade tartare sauce. Very pleasant staff, very clean restaurant and facilities.Good decor too.

We visited this fish and chip restaurant in march on our way to Spain as we stopped off in folkestone for one night and sampled the fish which was amazing the first time, so naturally on our way back we came through the tunnel and decided to re-visit for lunch. We were welcomed with a big smile by the lovely... More
