“Reasonable price for good quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This place was busy both nights we went. We could see why. The food is excellent for the price and the staff and surroundings excellent.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had an excellent meal at the Riverside as we do every time we visit, without fail. The food is fresh, well cooked, well presented, with an oustanding choice. The staff were most courteous from arrival to departure. Service was excellent and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Friendly helpful staff with good food thrown in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

A brief visit to this pretty harbour village saw us asking if there was any room for dinner as it was 8.30pm. The restaurant was full, but the staff went out of their way to find us a table. There is a lovely riverside garden with views out to the harbour wall and sea. The menu was comprehensive and the sea food was lovely. The best bit was the friendliness of the male staff who were so kind and helpful. Thank you for a lovely evening after a very long journey. Don't hesitate to go.

“Not bad but I was disappointed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

With so many outstanding reviews I was expecting something better.
My starter was good (scallops) but really smal portion. The crab salad, was a crab, not full, even if they said it was? And the salad on the side was ordinary.
No desert included in the children menu.
I won't go again.
