2nd time we have been on both occasions a very good experience and felt very satisfied good value for very good food would highly recommend. I post this from a person who has dietary requirements and is not the biggest fan of seafood.

Excellent food crafted from fresh, high-quality ingredients. Went for Valentine’s Day and was very romantic. Beautiful restaurant. Crab and mussels were phenomenal, as was the sea bass. Lovely range of cocktails too.

Was an overall lovely experience and meal. Apart from at the beginning at the bar the bartender spilt a drink across the bar and went all down my clothes. We received a free drink but no apology.

We came to Rocksalt for a special occasion. The food was very nice, but the service was very poor to the point where the waitress was rude. We would not recommend the restaurant or go back ourselves, which is a shame because the food was lovely.

One in our group had stomach upset with Skate, possibly the sauce, and another considered the Pork Belly to be dry, possibly overcooked. Rest of the fixed price lunch was ok and good value particularly with the Prosecco and Tea/coffee. However, the ladies loos were small and needing an update.

Visiting Catering management being egotistical at nearby table, swearing and being general idiots by not respecting other dinners that can only afford this eating out experience infrequently. The Pork was mostly fat and had to spit it out in the toilets. Maybe l just had high expectations.

Fantastic mid week deal. Tried skate wing for the first time, absolutely amazing. The peanutter butter and chocolate mousse was to die for. My only criticism is having to pay three quid for 4 small new potatoes and was also told by waitress that one portion would be ample for two people and not made aware that the potatoes were chargeable

We were overcharged on our bill as the we had booked the midweek special and were charged for coffees, did not notice until we got back home. The selection on the midweek was not great either, it was not bad, but there was not much I would rave about. Our starters we had prawn and sweetcorn fritters with aioli which were quite greasy and there was way too much mayo which was a bit sickly for a starter, my husband had ham hock and beef dripping bread and that was really hard- very challenging to eat, Mains we had ray wing, which was lovely, maybe could have done with a bit more caramelisation, we also had the pork belly and hispi again, both could have done with a bit more- the pork so it had crackling, which is the point of the belly piece and the hispi because it is just cabbage without the char- neither came with any carbohydrate and we were not asked if we wanted to add it, it is the cheapest part of the meal so it seems odd to not put even a smear of pommes puree, a couple of new pots or something to balance the dishes . Dessert there was a chocolate, peanut option which was nice until you hit some kind of berry flavour, which did not go with the rest of the peanut, chocolate and espresso flavours, cheese and a rhubarb roly poly option was also chosen by our table, I had hoped the rhubarb and ginger pudding that was advertised that week was available, but it was not- definitely call ahead to check options. Staff were great as always, shame there is a full spot light on the table, they could do with being a few lumens lower in the evenings.

Food was wonderful, service efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. Nice buzzy atmosphere, noise levels too high for perfect comfort - will definitely be returning and recommending to friends.
Particularly commend the imaginative menu, well executed, and an excellent veg offering

This is without a doubt one if the best restaurants I've been to, it outstrips most top london restaurants with its service, ambience and exceptional food. A must visit!

My wife and I have been here a few tines before , usually for a special occasion due to location, decor and golf course great food.
Sadly, this time my wife found her main (Cod fillet with trimmings) to be extremely salty to the point where she had to leave a good proportion of it.
However, this was advise to the v attentive waiting staff who apologies and subsequently reduced the bill accordingly.
Overall, a small glitch in otherwise excellent experiences here. We WILL go again...:-)

Unfortunately we weren’t happy with our table (by the loo) and asked to sit by the window, waiter said fully booked so we couldnt be moved but a lot of the tables were empty while we were there.
The food was good though.

We had a voucher that was a christmas gift from our son and daughter-in-law. We didn't know what to expect. We were so pleased with the service and food. We attended on a Tuesday, Steak night. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the chips onion rings and mushrooms were perfect. The service was one of the best we have ever had. The service charge of 12.5% was pointed out to us by the waitress and we were made away this was absolutely voluntary, which was nice, but we were more than happy to pay this. We were offered tap water and bread all complementary, which was lovely, as we do not drink alcohol. The desserts are a little expensive, which is why they did not get 5 stars for value for money, other than that could not fault it, wonderful views, wonderful food and excellent service. Will definitely return again

This is our favourite lunchtime stop when we travel across to Europe.
The food is excellent, the location is splendid overlooking Folkestone harbour and the staff are simply delightful.
We lunch there as often as we possibly can.
