We're booking a HUGE table at Nicola's Portofino soon, so they've offered us a special set menu to make sure we all get fed at the same time... I don't usually post menus up here, as I don't have them, but I thought I would with this one, seeing as I have to send it someone. It gives you a taste of what they can make, though his is NOT their full range.

A guide to eating + drinking in Folkestone, Sandgate, Hythe, + the surrounding area... TOP ranking result for Folkestone Eating, if you're not mentioned here who knows you're there..? All independent, unpaid, and not intended to be spiteful...
See a full list of Folkestone eating and bars, browse our reviews, find a restaurant on our map, does that still work? You can't leave yr own reviews here any more, sorry. This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to.
