Location is fabulous, nice wine - food good however if i was going to criticise then more extensive menu required! ( could lose items such as rabbit pie and replace with 'edible' dishes such as steak pie) :-) Best restaurant in Kent!

Maybe we should have gone for lunch - reviews suggest service is better then. The restaurant was busy for a Monday night. Maybe that was unexpected but it was forty five minutes before we placed our order and we had ask someone to take it. We were booked for 8 and did not get our starters much before 9. That... More

I like the fact you can decide your budget and work around it - you do not have to spend a lot although the quality is so good its a shame not to go here for special occasions. I've eaten here about 6 times and the service is always god, the food fresh and local to Kent. The menu gets... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to our pre valentines dinner out at Rocksalt. We get no time together due to work commitments and children, so it was an important night out for us. It took 1 hour after we were seated to have someone take out order (i had ordered oysters as soon as we sat down... More

Went on a Friday lunchtime, and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Good choice on the menu of food and drinks. Well presented food by superb waiting staff. Had a great window seat. The meal was not rushed and although busy , we felt that we were treated well. Will be back again soon.

Really shocked especially after it was highly recommended. Without doubt one of the located views of a seafood restaurant in the U.K., went on a Sunday and they were so busy they forgot about us for 2 hours while we drank in th bar. Then food disappointing and served cold. As a really major "seafood" I was really looking forward... More

As always the staff and the location are both excellent. The real problem is the food because no matter how much you admire the location and build a rapport with the staff who are extremely good you still have visited to eat. Another good point is the wine list which has some reasonably priced good wines on it. Right back... More

Friends took us to Sunday lunch at one of their favorites. What a treat! I had mussels to start and grilled lemon sole for my main. Two people had the traditional roast and another a fish dish. Everyone was exceptionally pleased. We will visit our friends again soon to reciprocate at Rock Salt.

My wife and I went to Rocksalt for lunch on her birthday. We were made to feel welcome immediately by the staff who are very professional and friendly. We had a table by a window which gave us a good view over a sunny harbour even in February. The tables are on the small side but it did not cause... More

Went first to the bar and was asked for my Credit Card which was to be retained until i left the Restaurant That has never never happened on any previous visits ?? Still I accepted it and I did receive it back without problem once the evening ended. The Restaurant was busy and the service suffered accordingly but was compounded... More
