Our second trip to Riddle and Finn and we were not disappointed. The staff were very nice and very informative about the food on offer. The food itself was excellent, superbly cooked and presented, we washed it down with a beautiful bottle of Chenin-Blanc. Top quality.

We spent the night here with friends and family following their wedding in Brighton. Nothing bad to say... The service was great and the food was so tasty! Fish should always be like this... Good work. Thank you!

I was recommended this restaurant by the owner of a menswear store in The Lanes. We could not have had a better meal. Great food, great service - what more could anyone want.

We have walked passed this place the last few times we have been to Brighton, but stopped for a drink for the first time this weekend. The lovely waitress asked if we wanted to eat and when we said not right now, she offered a bread basket with pate, which we chose. This was great and she was lovely, even... More

We've been to the R&F in the laines but this was our first time eating on the seafront. We had a great table upstairs so the view of the beach and the sun going down was a bonus on a lovely evening. Whilst the portions of the starters seemed a bit small, the quality of everything was really good. Service... More

I had a lovely table upstairs right by the window so could look out at the sea. I had the special starter of the day which was very large clams in a bread crumbs and garlic butter. My main course of crab linguine was very good. My wine and coffee also very good and the diners around me all seemed... More

Been loads of times but just haven't got round to reviewing yet, which is criminal given how good it is every time! Firstly the bloke at the door, Nigel I think his name is, is absolutely brilliant at managing the tables and ensuring everyone is happy. He makes you feel like you are the only people that matter in a... More
