I've never been blown away by the food in Rocksalt. The venue is excellent, the location is great and it should be brilliant but it just never quite hits the real heights it should do for me. We had Sunday lunch recently and whilst the food was pretty good, the service was a bit rubbish to be honest. It was... More

Dinner at Rocksalt was one of my highlights of 2016. Which says something as I'm vegetarian and our home is vegetarian. However, my OH eats fish when we go out and I wanted to experience dinner with friends and not carp (sorry!). Service was attentive, the food was beautifully cooked and presented. We sat near the French windows and enjoyed... More

A recent visit was completely spoilt by the very poor service experienced: very slow, inattentive, error in the bill, all coupled with a waitress who seemed to think sarcasm is an appropriate response to requests to be served. Normally service is pretty good here so not sure why it let itself down on this last trip. A real shame as... More

Food is very good, but not as outstanding as I would have expected from a TV chef. Can't fault ingredients or the use of fresh local produce, unlike another local establishment that isn't as Grand as it thinks. I can't quite put my finger on it but the main dining area needs to capture the fun and relaxed atmosphere of... More

Lovely restaurant, we thought the menu was a bit lacking in variety. The food was good, but not stunning, lacked a bit on the herbs on the main course. The little touches were missing also did not need 2 skate wing, quality not quantity please. not fine dining. Enjoyable evening,

I booked a Christmas meal with Sara the Manageress at very short notice on Tuesday before new year as we were let down by Wards hotel Folkestone who at 1 days notice wanted us to pay the whole...

Very disappointed with our family Rocksalt experience. We decided to have our family Christmas evening at Rocksalt Dec 2016 and overall I am sad to say it was poor. Food was overpriced and delivered to our table at uneven times, some of our family were finishing mains as others were starting and some meals were served luke warm. Quality of... More

An absolutely stunning restaurant. Food was excellent with a very good choice on the menu. Staff are welcoming and friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the menu. Great view over the harbour. Would highly recommend. We also enjoyed an over-night stay in the Rock Salt rooms just across the road. Stunning little boutique rooms.

My sister & son had been before and enjoyed their meal so my sister booked when we visited over the New Year break. The booking staff explained that the new Year's lunch service would be more relaxed as there was only one sitting with 2 in the evening. Arriving early in the bar for 1pm we had a really relaxed...
