We had lunch on the terrace last Friday 22 July. As we shared a first course of sardines and we both chose the lemon sole as a main course, this review is somewhat limited! The sardines were excellent, as were our lemon soles. But two of the three main course vegetable dishes were below par for a place of this... More

I love this restaurant more than anything because of the view! The food is good and the restaurant is very nice. Staff is always super friendly. I've been here a couple of Sundays and me and my husband love their roasts.

London top restaurant quality service. Attractive, attentive staff who do everything they can to make your experience delightful. Heavenly views. Beautifully presented food, and great fish, but! They cannot cook the accompanying vegetables to save their lives. Tiny rock hard new potatoes looked like little lumps of concrete in old, black mint leaves doused in rocksalt. And the samphire -...

Ate here on a Friday night and have to say the staff are amazing. The restaurant was full, with tables filling almost as soon as they were vacated, but the waiting staff remained calm, attentive, chatty and friendly all the time. Lovely little plank of amuse-bouche, highlight was the rice and seaweed crackers - melt in your mouth. My starter... More

Located right on Folkestone Harbor, this restaurant, with it's floor to ceiling windows, offers a spectacular view of the harbor and the Straight of Dover beyond. We were seated promptly at 6:30, their opening time, and enjoyed the bread with a complimentary platter of spreads that had some wonderful flavors. I ordered the steak medium rare and it came out...

Lovely views over the harbour and although it wasn't too busy we had quite a wait for... More

We booked for 19:30 on a Sunday night - we got there early thinking we could have a cocktail in the bar before dinner, unfortunately the bar was off limits as there was a 'comedy evening' taking place. The staff we good, we asked if we could sit on the balcony for a cocktail or two and then come inside... More

Lovely restaurant with an excellent view over Folkestone harbour and the English Channel. The local fresh fish and seafood is well prepared and very flavoursome, and the wine list is well matched to the food. The service was on the poor side all round. My wife is allergic to peppers and despite having said this she was not informed of... More

Excellent meal at this lovely restaurant overlooking Folkestone harbour. Delicious starters and gorgeous fishy main courses, all with a modern edgy twist. The service was as usual excellent. Fine dining in great surroundings.
