I went to Riddle and Finns for my birthday meal after multiple recommendations from friends. We went for the Black Velvet tankards to add a bit of theatre to our oysters, both the drink and the oysters were fantastic. (I recommend the oyster sauce with bacon lardons- delicious) I opted for the lobster and mango salad which was lovely but... More

The menu is quite extensive and also offers daily catch items so plenty of choice, we favour a tapas style menu which this restaurant was very happy to supply in the form of 4... More

I fell in love with Riddle and Finns after eating in the Laines Restaurant. But it got even better when I booked a table at the beach restaurant. I love seafood and nothing n the menu disappoints. The staff are friendly, at tentative and knowledgeable. Prices are reasonable and the ambience very pleasing. Highly recommended.

The location is good even though there are works taking place nearby. The staff were very friendly, explaining the menu and making good recommendations. We enjoyed the oysters & scallops to... More

Sitting upstairs looking out over the sea is a great experience! The fresh fish is always delicious and the atmosphere is lively and fun, with charming staff. However I do think the food is quite expensive.
