Lovely food

First time we have been there and was not disappointed, had a lovely selection of tapas. The prices were quite reasonable, staff very welcoming. Would definitely go back.

This is a really great venue! The food is fantastic, the service was great.....it was simply great experience and a place I would recommend to my friends and family. (Try the sangria!!!) If you are looking for a meal with a bit of class (and with a difference for the local area), then give Riverside a try.

I have visited here twice last month and making it a regular place to visit. If I eat out to a good standard and want good service I always come to riverside. Always tastes the same which is really important and always receive great service. Lovely please and location

visited this place beginning of the year, and decided to revisit to see if the food was as good second time round. The tapas food was exceptional, well cooked and tasted amazing. I was not disappointed, and I highly recommend this restaurant. The down side: certainly understaffed, Service was good at first, but once more than two other tables where... More

Called into Riverside yesterday for the first time and we were jot disappointed. It was a lovely day so we sat outside to eat lunch. The views out to sea were lovely. For lunch we chose the Fish sharing platter and it was delicious, came quickly and looked amazing, The service I felt could have been a little better. We... More

We arrived in Grimsby on a Sunday evening with no restaurant booking but a need to eat and no pre-conceptions about what we fancied to eat. After driving around Grimsby without finding anything open that looked nice we ended up parking up in Cleethorpes. We walked the length of the town and decided that of the few places open Riverside... More

My husband and I went for our first tapas and was pleasantly surprised. The food was lovely and came quickly. However, we did have to wait a long time for the dessert menu to come round as they only had one. Maybe they need to have another couple so no one has to wait. We were given a seat by... More

Lovely ambience, great views over the estuary if you sit in window upstairs. Visited with a group of six 'girls' ordering tapas and sangria as an early evening meal to celebrate a birthday. Staff very helpful. Very enjoyable evening for us all.

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...
