I have now dined at "The Beach" three times and it just keeps getting better. Fish and shellfish is as fresh as it comes, they can adapt any meal to you own personal taste, and prices are not excessive. Upon my last visit two children of 6 and 8 years were part of the dining party. Service is always good... More

I've dined here a few times and not once have I been even close to disappointment. The staff are on-the-ball, super-friendly, helpful and despite being super-busy I've never felt 'rushed'. The food is top class. I personally gravitate towards the fish pie as its a fish pie unlike any other and consistently delicious. I'm told by friends that the seafood... More

You need to book well in advance to secure a table at this top notch Restaurant on the sea front especially if you want to eat outside. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation and it wasn't quite warm enough to sit outside although blankets are provided for when the sun goes down. The fresh fish is excellent and beautifully presented... More

Been coming here for years, by far one of the best restaurants in Brighton. Love just picking the tapas and starters for a variety of tastes.

Terrific food here, absolutely delicious. The seabass is superb. Aside from a handful of vegetarian options it's seafood through & through. The menu is really enticing & presentation good. Service is friendly & easy going & the sea views an added bonus. Just how a fish restaurant should be.

We have been to Riddle and Finns at The Beach quite a few times now, and have loved our experience every time. So a review is definitely well overdue! We recently went weekend before last and had a lovely lunch on the seafront. The Oysters were delicious and the Garlic and Herb Lobster cooked to perfection! My partner had a... More

Have had two fantastic seafood meals here now. Today's lobster was really tasty unlike many lobsters you find on British menus and the fish and chips was honestly the best I've had in the uk. Lovely light, crispy batter, what I'd call Aussie style.

The staff were very welcoming and attentive thoughout our meal. The starters were good. the plateau disapointing. It was a warm evening and the crush ice bass melted during the time it took us to eat, the prawns and smaller items ended up being in the water, which wasnt good.. A seaweed base is better, we also felt that some... More
