this has to be one of the best restaurants for food experiences I have ever been to. We visit about 3 times a year for an evening meal and every time I have a dish with a completely new flavour experience. The staff are really friendly and the service is spot on. There are several vegetarian dishes all of which... More

Good food, good value and another enjoyable evening. The restaurant was very busy and a noisy group opposite so fine for an evening out with friends but not for the couple out for a romantic evening next to them. One of the best eateries in Braunton, will be back

We had a meal here on New Years Eve. It was fantastic! Great choices for all 3 courses and excellent value. We have been here several times and it has always been such good food. Excellent service, food and ambience. Not to be missed!

One of my favourite places to eat. Great food come here regularly and no matter what we order were never disappointed. Fantastic burgers, great sandwiches, stunning salads and mezze boards and as good a chip as your likely to find anywhere. Love this place would recommend it to anyone.

Another great meal at Riverside! Six of us having a late Sunday lunch & everyone happy! Great food served up with friendly and attentive service. I love their consistency. Riverside must be one of north Devon's best places to eat!
