  • Beanos Folkestone: great food, service and price

    by NCV Written Mar 30, 2012

    Beano's is a great local restaurant. Not far from the harbour and serving vegetarian food. Service and quality of food is excellent. They offer a childrens party service and are very, very helpful. I have had 3 visits and all great. The hot chocolate and cakes are fab. The main meals we have had so far have been very good. Clean restaurant,with a small garden at the back. Definately worth a visit. My daughter is coeliac and they managed to serve her a meal and drinks each time with no issues. They are careful about handling the food , although the kitchen food is all prepd in the same area. They even had a gluten free chocolate cake, which went down a treat with all of us as we brought it home.

    Favorite Dish: my daughter loved the cheesy chips..because they dont cook the cheese! the oil is not used for any gluten products so its all safe. I loved the egg curry..... and remember that the soup of the day was really good (but cant remember what the soup was!!). Lovely fresh bread too.

    Portofino: Italian Cuisine at its best

    by nhcram Updated Jul 6, 2008
    Veal in mushroom sauce.
    2 more images

    My friend and I came here recently for her birthday and I must say for a small town this restaurant was excellent.
    The service was very good with the waiter and waitress eager to help and they both helped us with our choices as the menu is quite extensive. They also helped with the choice of the wine and actually told us the house one was the best! They were right about the wine and the food!
    Portions are large so be careful should you decide to have a starter as you may not have room for dessert!
    It is quite expensive but as a special treat it is certainly worth it!

    Favorite Dish: %S$For a starter I had the salmon risotto and it was so creamy and so well made. The only problem was there was so much that I had to leave some of it to make room for the main course. For the main course I had the veal in cream and mushroom sauce. Delicious!!!!
    Tracie and I shared a dessert and we toook the Italian cake filled with strawberries and crea. Yummy!

    Kalala Bar and Restaurant: Chinese Buffet

    by St_Vincent Written Feb 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not really a bar although there is a small seating area at one end. The main business is an excellent all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet and it is worth a mention just for that. No "all boiled rice and hunt the crispy duck" here, as attentive staff keep the varied and plentiful dishes well stocked. It's not cheap and you probably have to ask yourself if you are able to eat £13 worth of Chinese food but it is cheaper midweek and lunchtimes and is well worth a visit if you're hungry.

    LUCHIANOES: TRIED AND TESTED

    RESTAURANT

    This restaurant has been open in Folkestone for as long as i can remember, they are actually freinds of my parents and as it was my fathers birthday a few weeks ago we decided to take him for a meal here. This is the first time we have eaten here for years and although the decore is like going back in time, the food is exeptional. I don't think its been decorated since my last visit in the 70s coz its still got flock wallpaper on the walls LOL, but so long as the food is good who cares

    Favorite Dish: We actually hired the whole restaurant out for 1 night because there was a big party of us and the menu was pre arranged before hand. The owner prepared a whole roast pig for us with all the trimmings, superb stuff and not to be missed

    KALALA BAR & BUFFET RESTAURANT: STUFF YOURSELF SILLY

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 13, 2006

    KALALA RESAURANT

    Up till a couple of years ago this was a dissused bank, but now its been turned into a chinese all you can eat restaurant. Good value for money, but thats as far as it goes in my opinion, all these sort of buffet restaurants seem to be the same, and they are popping up all over the country. In my view these are great places to go if all you want is stuff your self silly, but as for the culenary side of things, well forgett it

    SEAFOOD AT ITS VERY BEST

    Before i start, this is not a seafood restaurant, but a seafood stall, and its far better and cheeper than a restaurant. This place has been here all my life and you will not taste better crabs or cockles anywhere in England. It is very poplar in the summer, you can buy a plate of prawns or cockles and sit with a pint of beer at the pub oppersitt WHAT COULD BE BETTER

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish has to be there crabs

    GIOVANNI'S RESTAURANT: THE ONE AND ONLY

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE ONE AND ONLY

    Giovanni's italian restaurant has always been my favourite place to eat, it is also very popular so you have to book early in advance. There menu is huge so its difficult to make your mind up what to eat. the staff are always welcoming and friendly and are italian born, i say this coz how many italian reataurants have you been in where the waiters are english, im not being funny but its just not the same is it. So it defintately has got an italian feel.

    Favorite Dish: My favourites at Giovanni's are fried whitebait, which are tiny little fish deep fried in seasoned flour untill they are crispy. These you eat whole including the head and tails Mmmmmmm Loooovely. Also a mixed seafood platter which is squid, lemon sole, king prawns, skate and sea bass, wow is this tasty or what. Plus there steak is fab and its cooked in garlic and pernod. (ENJOY).

    Cliff Top Cafe: See France from the White Cliffs of Dover

    by Ash59 Written May 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cliff Top Cafe view

    This small Cafe has seats for about 30 people inside and 30 outside. During good weather, the best place to be is definitely outside. Sitting at basic wooden tables on benches, you can get a full english breakfast and a superb view across the English Channel to France, all for the price of 3 english Pounds.

    Favorite Dish: All the food is basic cafe style food that is all freshly prepared. Home made coffee and walnut cake with a mug of milky coffee is my favorite.
