A great place to meet for drinks with friends as this part of Cleethorpes is for me my husband and friends. Lovely inside , trendy comfortable and has a nice feel. The down side is the music....it doesn't fit in with kind of Bar it is. My husband and I visited last Friday around 8pm it was fairly quiet. Had... More

Dined with my other half a short while ago. Only table in! Tapas deal with sangria isn't bad. BUT my partners bruschetta was burnt (badly burnt!) and the chicken in cream sauce is appalling.... As a professional chef myself it annoyed me a lot... Why send out burnt bruschetta? You know it's burnt..!? Bad form....... Ruins the dish. The chicken... More

Firstly we arrived a little early and had a drink downstairs before heading up to the resteraunt to find that we had a candle lit table in the window overlooking the beach, we then ordered the...

We used to be regulars here, however when it changed hands we just didn't like it at all, the food went really down hill. Well friends wanted to go and I am glad we gave it another chance. The good was excellent as was the service. Very happy to see they are serving peroni again in the bar downstairs too.... More

Came here with some friends on a Saturday night. We arrived about 6.45pm as our table was booked for 7pm. We were seated and seen to quickly which was great. We ordered our food which we didn't have to wait too long for and it was delicious, I really enjoyed it. We did the 6 dishes and wine for £35... More

Cute little modern restaurant, upstairs away from the noisy bar downstairs! Been here twice now, and although the first time was better, no matter what the situation, it always is! The offer a tapas deal of 6 dishes and house wine or sangria £30 (or £35, can't remember?). There's a lot to choose from - 3 different styles of chips,... More

I cant fault the food at the Riverside. This long established Tapas restaurant on the seafront is popular, and offers a warm comfortable dining experience. However!.....We often try booking a few days before we want to go, we're usually told its fully booked. If we just walk in on the night, we usually get a table anyway! This time we... More
