The seafood here is utterly delicious. We ordered gambas with chilli and garlic and Shoreham cod - both were cooked to perfection. The restaurant was busy but not overtly so on a week night. The only downside is when the bill came there was a "cover charge" of £1 per person and 10% service charge on top (yes, 10% on... More

This was a special treat from my husband as I always wanted to go here and he booked about 2 months in advance ... sadly service was very poor, we knew that a window seat was probably not going to be possible but my husband was asked at the time of the booking if it was a special occasion and...

Mum, Dad and 16 year old son all really enjoyed our meal on Monday evvening. Starters of squid, bream ceviche and Frito misto all polished off with relish. Mains: tranche of turbot, artichoke and clams, as good as I've tasted, halibut with colcannon superb and filling, crab linguini very tasty. Sharing platter for pudding was ideal. Wine available at £20... More

Chose the restaurant for a birthday based on Trip reviews and they were right. Nice view from the top floor of a surprisingly sunny February Saturday, friendly professional service and very good food. Good broad menu covering everything from fruits de mer platters to fish curry. You know you are in good hands when the bread comes with a punchy... More

Great food, good view and friendly service. The receptionist was not as friendly which is a shame. We booked a table for 3 pax to celebrate. Our waiter was friendly. We still prefer going to their other R&F at the Lanes. The receptionist is very nice and friendly, waiting staff are always happy to see you and of course the... More

We had visited Riddle and Finns in the lanes before so thought we would give the beach restaurant a try. We had the classic seafood platter to start which was full to the brim of seafood, really tasty and fresh. Followed by the shellfish risotto and the crab linguini - both delicious. Fantastic service, attentive and helpful. The lanes restaurant... More

We had a romantic Valentines lunch for 10 at Riddle and Finn yesterday. Our waiter was Arthur and he was a superstar. As always the food was excellent, I had the fish cakes ( which are enormous) followed by the curry. Arthur looked after us very well indeed, he was speedy, smiley, helpful and a very nice young man. We... More
