Oh my goodness, what brilliant value and such good food. Really thought we had misunderstood the cost of this meal. An amazing variety of fish and shellfish, yet all cooked perfectly. Staff really friendly and there was no point where we felt rushed or in the way. Can't wait to go back again !

Lunch for 2 mates on a VERY cold day. We were seated at the window with a great sea view but we weren't cold. The fish (cod & salmon) mains were perfectly cooked. Not too pricey except maybe for the wine. Great service.

My husband and I visited here for his birthday. We normally go out of Brighton for special occasions but we are SO glad we stayed put! The restaurant is right on the beach and the food is so fresh and tasty. We loved it. Thanks for having us!

Dinner on a Sunday night in late January so the restaurant was quite empty and a little lacking in atmosphere. However the food was very good and the service just right. To be recommended - but you do need to book!

Excellent meal, delicious and fresh, loved it. Lovely fresh bread and mackerel pate on the table. My partner and I had scallops and squid to start, followed by the dover sole and seafood risotto. Polite, unobtrusive service, will definitely be back.

Super meal, great service in a unique, cosy setting. Busy on a Sunday night in the middle of winter so in the summer you would definitely need to book. A bit pricey, though worth it seeing the enjoyment on my husband's face as he demolished the biggest crab I've ever seen, can't comment on it myself as apparently it was... More

I went to Riddle and Finns restaurant many times. I fancy eating there and it is one of the greatest experience I have ever had. The food is fab. and I found their homemade desserts are one of the best ever. The food is fresh and tasty. I went to Brighton mainly to eat there. It sounds odd but this... More
