The Cliffe Restaurant

The Leas, Folkestone CT20 2EF, UK – 01303 847880

Lovely place, friendly staff and great location on The Leas overlooking the sea. Great choice of dishes made it difficult to choose what to have. At its best the food was superb; my pork belly flawless. We thought it was fairly priced. A few silly mistakes; slight mix-up over one of the orders and broken tea bag spoiled what would've been a perfect score.

Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Fun place to be. Great food. Great cocktails.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Folkestone area

Golden Wok Chinese Takeaway

98 Black Bull Rd, Folkestone CT19 5QX, UK – 01303 248225

Lovely food. You get fortune cookies, as well. Very good deals on take away menu. The only thing I was not impressed, were the ways of the delivery driver, who tried to kiss me, haha. It was only a half joke. It's a shame.

We all love this place. The food is always of excellent quality and it is always ready to collect in 20 minutes. I cannot recommend enough.

Very good meal - great staff - always enjoyable

In one guise or another my wife and I have been using the Tavernetta for nearly 34years now and are finding a real renaissance with it again in recent times. They've successfully managed to maintain authenticity, family values, great food, EXCEPTIONAL service from a bygone era, all combined with good value too. Would recommend Tavernetta to anyone looking for quality dining! Thank you Thomas, Kirsten, Francesco, Diego and team for shining a light this bright for so many years. Long may it continue!

Bella Pizza E Pasta

124 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 2BW, UK – 01303 210225

Food was well cooked apart from one item was still cold. Waitress was pleasant and polite waiter was clearly in the wrong job.Beware cover charge for complimentary? bread and also told charge was for water which I believe legally should be free. Also could'nt see any notification of cover charge which is also wrong. Left a nasty taste after a nice meal.

Wonderful birthday lunch, beautifully cooked food as always and lovely friendly atmosphere. Thankyou.xxx

Great food great atomosphere would highly recommend

The Pullman

9 Church St, Folkestone CT20 1SE, UK – 01303 488966

Loved this place! Quirky but homely.. Wonderful open fireplace which is very welcoming. Extensive patio area with plenty of seating. Menu has something for everyone and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. This is my new 'to go' place when visiting Folkestone!

Really good cooking. A brilliant gastro pub at acceptable prices. Excellent service. Very pleasant staff. Brilliant atmosphere in this lovely old building, complete with log fire!


41 The Old High St, Folkestone CT20 1RL, UK – 01303 243974

Still great! Booked a table for a friend's night out and can find no fault at this jem. The staff in this little place are always polite and knowledgeable, they work tirelessly and are always on hand. The food is quick and freshly prepared, the flavours are spot on and the tapas portion just right. My advice, if you go as a group of four just ask for one of everything on the menu and enjoy Thanks for a great night!

As a Catalan, I rarely mention that fact when in a tapas bar as I like to see what's on offer and El Cortador really didn't disappoint. Having chosen the well explained specials rather than the menu options, I really must say I was blown away with the quality of the food. I've eaten tapas in many places around the UK and elsewhere outside of Spain and I can definitively state this small and humble restaurant has impressed the most. What made it more special was the offer of eating at the small but tidy bar due to the place being unsurprisingly fully booked. For me, eating tapas at a bar, with a genuine Spanish beer and chatting with the owner and other staff is what tapas is all about and invoked memories or doing the same with my father many years ago. Great food in great company. Will return at first chance!

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

Blue Martini

24 The Leas, Folkestone CT20 2DY, UK – 01303 850075

Great margarita


4-5 Fish Market, Folkestone CT19 6AA, UK – 01303 212070

This place is great. Food, service etc all excellent. There is a bar upstairs & downstairs is the restaurant which overlooks the harbour in Folkestone.Summer or Winter this is a nice spot to have lunch a nice drink or a nice meal in the evening with friends or family. Especially good for special occasions. Staff very friendly & helpful.

Review of the bar only, spent a long night here with Friends, many many cocktails were drunk. The place is nice, atmosphere is great. Of the 2 members of staff who were working on the bar one was great one was pretty useless and curt, verging to the point of rudeness. As the night went on we just used the other barman, who also made a much better cocktail! Considering the final tab for the group spending the whole night was the price of a cheap used car, if we'd been lumbered with the other barman I might have been tempted to give 1 star on service alone. Almost 5 stars. everything else was top notch.

Lighthouse Champagne Bar

Folkestone Harbour Arm, Harbour Approach Rd, Folkestone CT20 1QH, UK

Great champagne and oyster bar. Not cheap, but worth it for a treat on a sunny day.

Very convivial host and family, found the lighthouse by exploration last April the 8th,my wife's birthday, thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this great place. Fresh orange or coffee available for us drivers,Evan had a weather fornomanum in a ring in the sky,fantastic. We're enjoying Newark this year,presseco, river,but no sea.
