“Amazing food overlooking the harbour” with “a view to die for!” – Mark Sargeant’s “elegant” waterside venture is nowadays one of the survey’s most popular dining destinations, drawing fans from across Kent and on days out from the capital (“wish we lived closer!”). Particularly prized (as you might expect, given its proximity to the sea) for its “terrific, locally sourced” fish and seafood – it’s “ideal for a special occasion, although it is somewhat pricey”.

“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”.
