We had an evening meal on a table overlooking the river. The food was fresh and very tasty with a good selection of wine. The service was very good. Recommended.

On holiday with my partner and parents, we've had 3 meals at the riverside so far and are likely to have a few more. Highlights: the coffee (morning and night) is amazing. Amazing. Breakfasts are especially enjoyable outside in the sunshine overlooking the river, food is good quality and lots of choice. Service at all times is friendly and accommodating,... More

We found this restaurant by accident during our short stay in Boscastle and enjoyed two superb meals there. The food was excellent and nicely presented and the service likewise: special thanks to the very professional and personable Dougie - a very knowledgeable guy! Very relaxing and comfortable environment, and interesting to see the fresh fish being delivered as we enjoyed... More

A good selection of food on the menu with plenty of locally sourced items which is what we would have hoped for in a place such as Boscastle. Friendly staff and owner and not too bad pricing. Well done!

I have bringing my tour group from Australia to Boscastle every year since 2008 and we always have our welcome dinner at the Riverside. The food is always fabulous.

The steak was cooked to my liking however could have done with a few extras - onion rings, mushrooms, grilled tomato etc. We sat outside on a quiet table to soak up... More

Beautiful food. I had Cock and Bull, Chicken and Fillet Steak strips in a brandy and peppercorn sauce which was delicious, and my partner had Sea Bream which he said was the best cooked fish he had ever had. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. Sweet was Sticky Toffee Pudding for him, and Brown Sugar Meringue with clotted cream and... More

The comments outlined below were also conveyed to the manager on the evening. I pointed out that as we were directed to them by good trip advisor reviews i would also be leaving my comment on the same forum.
