Have eaten here a few times for breakfast and lunch. The food is really good. The service levels could be better as quite often wait ages for menus, taking the order and drinks to arrive. Food service is fine though.

As someone who travels across The Channel regularly I'm often in Folkestone. I'll definitely go to Googies for the food, which is locally sourced and very well cooked, and the cool restaurant/cafe ambience, but the service can be unfriendly at times. Depends what mood you find them in I guess? Not sure.

Went for lunch as a "let's try" and was blown away. I can't emphasis enough how good this place is. Service was impeccable and the food was out of this world. The relaxed atmosphere just added to the amazing food which was clearly freshly made. I loved it so much I'm back for breakfast!

Went on a Tuesday, with a friend, for their Movie Tuesday deal - the tastiest handmade burger and fries I'd ever eaten! Delicious! The meal AND the admission for the film was just £12.95! Outstanding value for money as some of the burgers alone were more than that!. The waitress could not have been friendlier and more helpful and a... More

Great atmosphere, not so great food or service. Reminded us of the the Thirsty Pig in Maine USA with excellent music and styling. However the food fell short of expectations with a veggie burger tasting of soap and relish with no promised cheese.. also the chips were all about 1" long and had been thrice fried from the consistency and...

We arrived at Googies at 9 o'clock. The restaurant wasn't full and we were served quickly for drinks and our waitress took our order. At 10 to 10 our waitress returned to apologise for the delay with our food as they had '2 big tables' to serve. We were given more free drinks - an inferior house wine for me... More

There's no doubt that Googies have a tasty menu of good basic hamburgers, (all made with Dexter beef) , hot dogs, fries, salt beef sandwiches etc. The specials vary but essentially this is a relaxed hamburger joint with a good wine list and draft and bottled beers. We had the New Yorker burger and my companion had the peri peri... More
