“Another Lovely Meal”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We have eaten here lots of times before and last went on Saturday. Our favourite restaurant in cleethorpes. Starters and tapas were gorgeous as usual . It's great value for money with there tapas offer 6 dishes & a bottle of wine or a jug of sangria costing £33.

“Good Tapas restaurant”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

3 of us visited this restaurant on a Friday night - booked for 8.0pm but they had us listed as 8.15, but no issue as the table was available. There is a small car park outside this restaurant and other parking close by. We sat down and after 5 -10 mins had to ask to order some drinks. Orders were then taken for the meals and we shared both starters and a selection of tapas - all of which were really good and tasty. The atmosphere was great and really buzzing with a full restaurant, so booking for a weekend is essential. There is one window seat for 2 people with a view over the river and local area. When the mains were cleared away we were asked if we wanted a dessert and we asked what there was which we were given the list verbally, so we said OK we'll just have a minute to think about it - but nobody returned to take an order, so we didn't bother. Staff were nice and friendly but lacked normal protocol of customer service etc.

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry to hear of your issues, drinks and desserts should not have taken so long to be asked for! We currently have a new team that have been training so would love to see you come back again to meet them, and hopefully we've ironed out a few kinks

“Lovely private room for small party”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Went here on Saturday for My Sons 30th birthday, The private room on the top floor of the restaurant was lovely for a private party! There were 20 of us and it was just about the right size. The food was a tapas selection which was very good, Could have done with some more oil/balsamic or some butter to go with the assorted breads. Also the staff could have been a bit friendlier. Overall though nice place to go and on the Seafront in nice area of Cleethorpes.

“Good value and good food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went on a Thursday evening and decided to have the '6 tapas and a bottle of wine for £33' deal. It turned out to be a very good deal - the Rioja we chose was £16 on its own and a very nice bottle it was too - and the 6 tapas only just left us with room for puddings. We had meatballs, chicken and chorizo paella, ham hock, rabbit with mushrooms, crab salad and spanish potatoes. After I'd ordered I realised that the rabbit came in a creamy mustard sauce so I was a little wary; I'm not a fan of mustard and it does tend to take over the dish, but I needn't have worried, as it was tasty without being overpowering, though the rabbit was maybe a little overcooked. My husband thought the meatballs were dense, but I didn't and we both liked them anyway, and everything else was delicious. For an extra £6 we added two apple crumble sundaes with stem ginger ice cream which we thoroughly enjoyed: tangy-sweet apple, crunchy crumble and ice cream with just the right amount of warming ginger. The staff too were very pleasant, even phoning a taxi for us as we'd just missed the hourly bus back. All in all a good night and we would definintely recommend Riverside to anyone wanting a good meal at a very reasonable price.
