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

I have drank in the riverside before but have never eaten in there. Four of us went for my finances birthday, the restaurant is welcoming and nicely laid out. We all had the tapas which was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be returning again. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

I love the tapas here, there is always a wide variety to pick from and it never dissapoints, it is slightly pricey but its a nice starter point before going out! Not too heavy but still filling enough to have a few drinks after!

I have eaten here quite a few times now on dates and with friends and it's been great for both occasions. The selection of tapas is great, especially the chilli chicken goats cheese dish! The 6 dishes and a bottle of wine offer is perfect for a couple... Or for a group of friends... Maybe even for one person if... More

Staff chatted amongst themselves nearly all night very un helpful always having to get their attention if you required anything. The food was disappointing as unless you want tapas nothing else on the menu. Will not be returning for a special occasion or evening meal. However the bar downstairs has a great atmosphere and is a fantastic bar to enjoy... More

Seriously. Do not go here. The fewer people who visit the more likely that my friends and family can always get a table at our favourite restaurant!! Visiting once again last night I am compelled to write about the experience. Once again the tapas dishes were just fantastic. The kitchen output at this restaurant is extremely consistent and never disappoints.... More

So after living away and coming back home for a week, i wanted to look around the local area for a nice restaurant for somewhere to eat with my friend. We chose Riverside, I used to go quite a bit and it has definitely changed since then. The staff are very unfriendly, unhelpful and just rude. The menus and food... More

I'm a hard man to please but visited riverside for my first time last week and had a great experience. (I think some people that have complained in here need to understand what Tapas is!) We took advantage of the 6 dishes and a bottle of wine offer for £35. Full selection of dishes included in the offer, the wine... More
