We went in a small group to Cornwall and stumbled across this restaurant in Boscastle. Staff were all very friendly and the food was excellent - especially for the good prices. We went back the next night so a win all around.

Had both lunch and dinner there in one day - couldn't ask for more! Lunch was delicious and brilliantly priced!! Dinner was classy, a different atmosphere and even tastier than lunch. This is the best place in Boscastle without doubt! Staff make you feel comfortable and welcome while providing a classy and professional service. Would go again!

Visiting from Australia and looking for a quaint Cornish village to stay in, one can't go past Boscastle and dinner at the Riverside Restaurant capped it off beautifully.
Friendly staff from the minute we walked in on a busy Saturday evening (with no reservation) until the minute we walked out.
The setting is perfect, located next to the stream which passes through the restaurant's beautiful gardens on its way out to the harbour.
The menu offered something for everyone with a lean toward seafood as you would expect. I ordered the Wok stir fried king prawns and moules and it was delicious, possibly the best meal I've had since arriving in England. My husband ordered the moules and was similarly impressed.
We couldn't resist the rhubarb and apple crumble which came with a choice of clotted cream, custard or ice cream.
The wine list was also surprisingly comprehensive.
Service was attentive and friendly and I think we might go back tonight!

Last night in Cornwall but this was a very average experience unfortunately. Friendly staff, nice location with a running stream at the rear. The starter scallops were excellent. The carrot and coriander soup was fine but nothing very special, could have been a Covent Garden packaged soup - but the lobster/seafood thermidor was very disappointing indeed. Very plain salad and rice - no dressing and rather unimaginative. The lobster was advertised as served with a sauce but I'm not sure we had any. At just under £30 a pop I regret not trying something else. My partner was of the same opinion. . . BUT the scallops starter was A1.

We took our Canadian friends here whilst we were in the area for lunch. They were keen to experience a fresh crab salad so we could not think of a better place.
We did not book but a table was available. It was a scorcher of a day and so we chose to sit inside in the cool of the restaurant.
We were served by friendly and efficient staff. Our friends were wowed when their crab salads arrived to table. We were all delighted with the delicious food.
This is a lovely location, and would be the first choice of eating venue in Boscastle for us.
