We went on a lovely warm and sunny night. We were early so went up stairs for a drink, which was very nice. We were on the first sitting and had a seat near the window, the view of the harbour was lovely. Service was good, staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was really nice lemon sole I was...

We booked for 4 for lunch, glass of wine and a catch up. Service was excellent, table outside was perfect. Choice of menu was appealing, wine menu was extensive. However, be aware main courses are served on their own...no potatoes or vegetables come with the main course all vegetables must be ordered separately at £3.00 per portion

We ordered one of the 'feasts' for our party of 10... Mixed ages from teens to eighties...possibly our fault for not thinking but there was far too much food. That said, it was very good food and the service was excellent....

Last minute decision to take a trip to Folkestone, was not disappointed, but it was a Tuesday, I'm sure this place is heaving at weekends...which is when we're planning the next visit. We opted for the bar area for food and drinks as we wanted to chill with the kids, very happy with that choice with the open soft seating... More

We had a delicious lunch at the Rocksalt Restaurant in Folkestone. From our table we had a view over the harbour with many fishing boats. Service was impeccable and our meal (fish!) was excellent. We will certainly return again.

We went to RockSalt to celebrate my birthday with friends one of whom is disabled and uses a wheelchair. The wheelchair access was excellent and we were able to eat upstairs with a great view of the harbour. The lunchtime specials are very reasonably priced and two of our party ate cod with chowder which they said was great whilst... More

Wonderful! Husband and I had a fabulous Sunday lunch here last weekend. Best meal out we have had for some time, and even though we are not great fish eaters, there was plenty for us to choose from on the menu. If you love fish and seafood, this would be paradise for you. There is a good wine list as... More

Great ambience, attentive service, tasty food at our family birthday get together. Even diners facing the wall were able to experience sun setting over the sea via strategically placed mirrors. I shared the Brill dish which was succulent and fleshy, tasting brill cheek for the first time, delicious....... a fussy eater was catered for with ease, allergies were considered, and... More

We have just returned from a wonderful anniversary lunch.... Everything was perfect... The lovely weather enabled us to sit on the terrace.... The food was wonderful, choosing was a serious challenge as we wanted everything!!! We eventually settled on sharing 2 starters.. Wonderful oysters and 5 beautifully cooked pieces of fish in the fritto misto. We then shared a whole... More
