Fabulous restaurant with the most delicious steaks! Reasonably priced for the serving size and the fact that the sauce is included, whereas most other restaurants have optional sauces at an additional price. Attentive service by very pleasant and friendly staff, always willing to help and go that extra mile. 2nd visit to this restaurant when travelling for business and definitely as good second time around!

Absolutely superb. Some of the best cuisine to be found in Folkestone, in a setting which has been very tastefully restored and with great sea views from the bar too. The service was excellent and the prices, whilst not cheap, were no more expensive than comparable restaurants and certainly justified by the excellence of the food. Would definitely recommend.

This restaurant is local to me. It is located on The Leas Promenade which provides a great view across the Channel to France. I have been several times for dinner or lunch and Often for coffee. The food is very good and the staff pleasant and helpful.

Overall our experience was excellent. Both for having a cocktail, dining or staying in the beautiful rooms this is an excellent location. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful ( especially Holly).

My only recommendation would be that the ladies toilets are checked regularly to replenish toilet tissue and tidy up from disrespectful customers.

Amazing food, amazing location, amazing decor and amazing staff!! Only negative I could bring to the review is that we had to ask once in the bar where the restaurant was as it wasn't clearly posted!! The food was above expectations and the staff were friendly and attentive but not too in your face like some places! Having known what the place looked like before the renovation the owners have done an amazing job.

The food was absolutely gorgeous. The staff were also very polite and very welcoming. It's definitely worth the travel, I'd definately go there again. Best food I've experienced.
My other half is a high up chef. He was also very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. 10000/10.
