Excellent.

went with 4 friends for a birthday. Chose lots of different tapas between us. All the dishes were tasty and well cooked. Not cheap, but good value. Good service, and a nice outlook from the table in the front window ( but everyone asks for that table)

We enjoyed a delightful meal ... Good company, really good food and efficient and personable staff. The quality and value are unrivalled in Cleethorpes. A return visit is on the cards.... A little gem.

I've been to riverside so many times but it now seems that now it is under new management the standards have dropped majorly! My friends and I waited an hour before our food was brought out because they served a table in the private dining room of 24 people before us, even though we arrived before them! We did ask... More

What a shame. Been here many times and always enjoyed the tapas until last night. Couldn't believe they ran out of mushrooms so that was at least 3 of our choices written off, then they announced they had no crayfish and this was 8.30pm on a Saturday. Our choices were limited, the food was only JUST warm and didn't look... More

A first visit but definitely not my last. I love tapas and this was some of the best I have had for a long time. Good value for money and a good location. To paraphrase Douglas McArthur ' I will return'. New management doing a fantastic job!!!

Good meal out with friends, well spaced out restaurant, we were a group of 6 and other large groups were there too without it feeling rowdy! Food and drinks were as to be expected with tapas, shame there wasn't any spicier dishes but all in all a great dining experience!

I've eaten here 3 times in the last year and its always been great. We always go for the delicious, great value tapas deal preceded by a cold meat platter, and sometimes followed by a fresh, tangy Tom Collins. The restaurant itself is a very nice setting and has a great atmos when busy. If dining as a couple, try... More

I've eaten here about ten times and never been disapointed. The food is always tasty, well presented, hot and served in an amenable and pleasant atmosphere. The staff are all excellent and the price for more Tapas than both me and my wife can eat at £30 is just right. If you're after a different drink , try the Blue... More
