This is mainly a fish restaurant. The food was delicious and served in an efficient but not rushed manner. It is on a level with the beach and would have delightful views of the sea from some of the tables in the summer. These would have to be booked

The atmosphere is on point. Its a lovely quaint place, perfect for couples in my opinion. My partner and I were both more than impressed with the food. In particular the Mussels were mind blowing. We loved the unlimited bread with the different dips and pate's. This isn't a cheap place at all, but they do offer a rewards card... More

I enjoyed our meal but was disappointed that the lobster had run out and it was only 8pm. Our waitress was extremely helpful and knew her menu, she also had a lovely personality. The venue shape doesn't help create a atmosphere which is a bit limited. I do think they could work on improving their prices. However the food is... More

We ate here for my birthday on Valentines Day, and it was excellent - I have hovered between very good and excellent, but feel that overall it deserves an excellent rating. We ordered our meal, and after we had finished our starters and when a table became free, the waitress kindly moved us into a table by the window so... More

We had a wonderful early Valentine's meal at Riddle & Finns on the Beach. The staff were friendly, knowledgable and attentive and the food was sublime. All the seafood was perfectly cooked and the dishes were beautifully presented. While not the cheapest option, the meal was excellent value considering the quality of food and service we experienced. Really can't recommend... More
