Went to The Sandpiper for Saturday night dinner. I can’t fault anything about the menu, our food or the excellent service by the very welcoming staff. The only downside was hardly anyone else was there which meant it was lacking in atmosphere. We still had a lovely time due the standard of the food. We weren’t totally alone to the excellent singer and bass player that went through some classic songs in the background.
Don’t let this review put you off I can’t believe it’s that empty most of the time.
Service, Food and menu are better than the Cliff in my opinion.

We were staying on the South Coast and came up to the Folkestone Marine Park a couple of times. A short stroll along the beach (south) brings you to the Sandpiper where they are very happy to serve you lunch. Arrive by 2.30pm for full lunch menu or a bit later for snacks like tomato pasta or club sandwiches (or even a full afternoon tea).
Great service in a lovely setting overlooking the sea. Chicken roti, pasta and chicken leg roast all very good.
Be a little careful on the extras....our USD120 bill for two was half mains but as much again on 2 x SAN Pelligrino, 2 small ice creams (25USD), 1 glass of wine, 2 coffees.

4 of us went for an evening meal. Overall it was a big disappointment.
Firstly we thought the staff were stuffy and unfriendly.
Secondly the venue was not very relaxed and rather pretentious.
Thirdly the food was very overpriced. The duck was tough, the curries were average. The portions were small. One pudding (fruit based) was unbelievably bland. The chocolate pudding was little more than a supermarket brand.
We all felt it very poor value for money, and a rather dull experience.
Don't go here.there are several much better places on the west coast!
And.......the staff!! They had no charm, no humour and no welcome!
The live music was good, thank you Ruth.

We came here from the Coral Reef on a reciprocal arrangement, if you are in the same position-don’t bother. It is chalk and cheese. The food is extremely average, everything we ordered was served late, cold and there were eight waiters standing around doing nothing. I was told that the 24 hour slow cooked Wagyu beef would be a while as we had to wait! (24 hours?)

We visited the Sandpiper for dinner (we are staying elsewhere) having had excellent food at the Sandpiper's sister hotel the Coral Reef Club on previous holidays. The restaurant is beautiful, staff are incredibly friendly and my dinner choices were adapted to be dairy-free without anyone batting an eyelid. Cold poached lobster salad with soba noodles highly recommended and the rum punch was perfect (not too potent!). Best haute cuisine I've had on the island (and marginally cheaper than comparable fancy locations).

I'll be back later for cocktails!
