“A superb view of the water and beautifully cooked fresh fish” – the twin key attractions of Mark Sargeant’s “fabulously located” and highly popular venue on Folkestone Harbour. It’s quite a “pricey” location, but for the vast majority of diners well worth it. Top Tip: “ask for a window table”.
“A lovely position with uninterrupted views of the most picturesque part of Folkestone Harbour and out to sea” is the crown jewel feature of Mark Sargeant’s “beautifully located” venture (“make sure you book a window table”). Its fish and seafood cuisine is far from incidental though, and most reports record “fantastic” results.
“You can literally see the boats bringing in the catch” at Mark Sargeant’s “classy” contemporary fish-restaurant where “you eat overlooking the old harbour, gazing out to sea”. If it wasn’t so darn expensive, it would be rated even higher given the “wonderfully inventive” cooking, “impeccable service” and “superb views”.
“Unsurpassable harbour views” are the highlight at Mark Sargeant’s “contemporary-style” three-year-old, which is best enjoyed from the “fantastic, sunny-day terrace” (especially as the interior can be “incredibly noisy”). Food-wise, “local fish is prepared with a sure touch”, but it’s “expensive”.
Rocksalt Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Great fish and champagne with a fantastic view !"
"Beautifully cooked fresh fish served by welcoming staff (what are we going to do without our EU youngsters ?) and with a superb view of the harbour"
"Went there on a day trip from London for lunch and was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and relaxed and the food was very good. Coupled with an amazing view of the harbour, it made for a very relaxing afternoon. Will definitely be going back."
