A very pleasant experience. I had the salmon parcels, cod and creme brûlée. Each course was nicely presented and tasted lovely. Service was also excellent. Very reasonable. I am due to return to Folkestone in two weeks and shall return for another meal. Thank you.

Walk down a few steps through an unpretentious doorway and you will find yourself in a little bit of Italy. My husband, brother and sister-in-law were charmed from the moment we entered to the moment we left. We felt like we ought to be speaking...More
