Special evening, special food, special service a night to remember. If you want to spoil yourself and your partner, and have an exceptional meal, I could think of no where better for a seafood extravaganza. Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant in Padstow was our benchmark for seafood but in my opinion Riddle and Finns has the edge. We look forward to... More

Staying in Brighton for New Years we decided to book dinner here - we've been meaning to dine here for a while. Service: fabulous! Staff were knowledgeable about the food and wine - making excellent suggestions. Food: The Scottish oysters were lush! Scallops were sensational Shoreham cod was delicious. We will most certainly be back!! A brilliant evening in quirky... More

I have had oysters here twice by now, for the main I had the braised octopus this time. I did it the right way. Dishes are fresh and light. I enjoy this place. Oysters are good, service is very good. Bill varies from 80 to 110GBP for two courses and wine. They also do surf and turf and fish and... More

I came here with my mum, sister and brother-in-law for a pre-Christmas dinner - all seafood lovers with high expectations based on tales of my Danish niece's Man vs Food style battles versus the whole crab on previous visits. We had an excellent meal and covered a lot of the options - perfectly cooked scallops, mussels, oysters and comfort food... More

This was our second visit to Riddle & Finns on the beach. As we visited on New Years Day, we had been told to expect a 'reduced menu', although for what we ordered everything was available from the normal menu - bar one type of oyster (which still left you a choice of another two types, so no hardship there)....

This is a very nice spot -- probably at its absolute best when 2 people get to sit in the little upstairs nook with a lovely view over the sea on a summer's evening. But the last visit was 5 of us for lunch on New Year's Day, which was just lovely (and the service was spectacularly sharp and relaxed,... More
