Menu very limited no longer the 3 menu’s : Fish/Butcher/Vegetarian.
Also thought for what we had Seafood mixed grill was very basic fish and one prawn thought might have had more exotic fish: lobster/octopus etc.

Wow! We had a lovely meal in a fantastic setting. Sitting outside on the balcony overlooking the harbour on a warm summers evening. The service was good, friendly and efficient and the food was absolutely delicious.
Covid 19 regulations were being met and the tables were spaced well and all staff were wearing masks.
I will definitely book to go again and maybe even book one of their rooms for an overnight stay.

We have had several visits to the Rocksalt for 'special' occasions. We always have a great time. This was even more special, as post pandemic shutdown and my husband's 60th birthday.

Menu not inspiring fish mixed grill overcooked small portions of mediocre fish like Huss and hake - overpriced
Worth going for the view but food is average at best

Arriving at 6 pm as the first diners of the evening we did not expect to have to wait very nearly an hour to be served our starters!
The food was excellent although the lack of children's menu was a small problem for younger child.

The food tasted great as did the wine accompanying the meal. It isn't cheap but the ambiance, especially when the tide came in, made it all worthwhile,
A special word about the staff - we had finished our meal and went for a postprandial stroll when we got back to the restaurant it occurred to us that the best place to rest up would be the balcony outside the restaurant - a bit cheeky as we had already paid our bill and left but this was no problem for the staff who sat us down and served drinks with good grace. This goodwill went a long way to our enjoyment of the day

We were surprised to find no sanitiser at the entrance of the restaurant. We were also surprised to find that the same number of tables as 'pre-lockdown' were in place. The noise meant my partner and I had to shout much of the time. The food was excellent, but my vegetarian main course - 'charred cabbage, with feta nuts and tomato' was rather over-priced at £15. The location is lovely, but we won't be returning in the near future.

Very well cooked, tasty meals. Restricted menu and a slightly slower service than usual but to be expected because of the COVID-19 restrictions. Very calm, tranquil atmosphere and everywhere clean with plenty of hand sanitising facilities around.

Lovely meal. We love Rocksalt and have been many times. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was that it was rather slow for lunch, taking almost an hour for our starters, and 2 hours for a 2 course lunch without puddings or coffee. Otherwise it was excellent

Called for lunch on a Thursday. Hadn't pre-booked but reserved a table on my mobile whilst in Folkstone. Had to take a 1:30 slot. Welcome was friendly and Covid restrictions were explained clearly. We felt very safe.
Food was excellent, particularly the Huss which was incredibly moist.
Service was slow but this.might be down to extra hygiene measures. If you are in a hurry let them know and they will push things along. Beautiful view over the harbour.

Amazing Sunday roast here this week. Restaurant was well spaced out and airy with the terrace doors open and all the staff wearing masks, felt very safe in the current covid climate.
Friendly service and amazing food.
Can’t wait to go again!

We absolutely love rocksalt, and this is the first restaurant we have booked and visited after COVID-19 lockdown was eased.
Attending was seamless, comfortable and felt clean and tidy.
The service outstanding, the food although having a restricted menu was delicious and the quality has not reduced at all.

I highly recommend this restaurant. Look forward to coming back soon.
