Tapas to love

we had lunch here this Thursday and it was GREAT, much better to go at lunchtime but it doesn't matter when you go it's gorgeous food. .....it's just quieter at lunchtime. Service was good by a very nice young lady, she was unobtrusive but friendly at the same time. We will be back definitely

Saw Riverside Tapas and Cocktail bar while passing through Cleethorpes, we decided to visit on Thursday night and I'm glad we did. It was busy and I see why the staff were very welcoming and helpful even though they were busy and the food was delightful. Our best tapas to date. After our meal we went and sat downstairs for...

I've just enjoyed yet another fantastic tapas meal. Great choice, good value and great taste. I let you into a secret lunchtimes are so quiet even when kids are off school. Watch out for the special deals too.

I have a family of picky eaters (plus allergies/vegetarians etc) and this is a great choice for all of us, we can all always find something we like at Riverside. The service can sometimes be a little slow but the food is well worth it.

Now then, Riverside, what an extremely disappointing place. To start with, the atmosphere is utterly dismal, with mediocre service from the staff. Somewhat overly priced drinks, with minimal effort with the 'cocktails'. The tapas was hit and miss, some things where cooked well and tasted nice, with some being under par. Seems to be a popular spot for work do's... More
