About Riddle & Finns The Beach
Riddle & Finns II - located right on the Brighton beachfront - directly across the road from the Brighton Centre - serving a delicious range of fresh seafood, oysters & champagne.
We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
Very good restaurant. Only gripe was my linguini was touch overcooked.
A very enjoyable meal - excellent food in relaxed surroundings with great friendly service.
Wonderful food, location and service! This was my second visit to Riddle & Finns and it as even more special because now they have a dairy free menu which makes ordering easier and the whole experience even better.
We had a lovely table by the window. The complimentary bread basket with dips was a very pleasant welcome. The starters we chose, were a little safe with Beer Battered Prawns and Calamari with a chilli and peanut dip. Safe choices were far from underwhelming; large portions of deliciously cooked, fresh seafood with really tasty dipping sauce for the calamari. I asked for a sweet chilli dipping sauce as I’m not a fan of tartare sauce for the prawns and the waitress couldn’t have been more happy to help. Her service was excellent! I didn’t catch her name, but she was young and friendly and kept our drinks topped up and kept checking on us throughout the meal. We both went for the Kerala Fish Curry for main course and it was superb! Fresh fish & scallops in a rich and tasty sauce, and plenty of it, steamed fluffy rice, perfectly cooked, and a crispy poppadom and delicious shrimp Bhaji finished of the dish perfectly. I actually couldn’t fault any part of the meal or the service and would definitely recommend to friends and will Most certainly return in the future! The only pity was after a beautiful summer of sun, we chose the only rainy weekend to visit Brighton. I would imagine the restaurant would be fabulous in the sun with the outside terrace, but actually the atmosphere inside the restaurant was so nice and romantic, it was quite nice that it was misty outside. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
All very good
The food was delicious! And the waiters were thoughtful and efficient. Thank you
Friendly service and great menu. Family friendly which was helpful to us having lunch with our two boys.
Great service, food and view!
Food was brilliant, as well as David our waiter who could not have been more attentive.
Anniversary dinner with my Husband. We had the Supreme Fruits de Mer. And what a feast we had! Lovely atmosphere and a table with a view. Thank you for a beautiful evening.
We had the best time thank you!
Staff were a delight; accommodating, friendly, attentive, communicated well. The food was devine, i just wish I could afford to buy everything on the menu and leave the staff a massive tip! we were waiting for friends and they gave us complimentary bread with a range of delicious spreads. PERFECT birthday lunch. I only wish there was a slightly cheaper bubbly option so we could have drank more! nice English sparkling wine maybe? Will be shouting about this place from the roof tops! Thank you.
Food very good
If you love fish and seafood like I do, this is a really great choice of restaurant for a special occasion. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. It was my birthday and our waiter even brought me a happy birthday message written in chocolate sauce!
Food was cooked well although I am not sure its worth what you are charging, I've had many similar meals for £15 for a main that were as good, also at that price I expect an interior that is much more upmarket when my bill is over £100. But to add to that your "Cover charge" for bread I NEVER ORDERED is frankly outrageous, thankfully it was removed when I questioned it with your staff. At the cost you are changing for mains, bread should be complementary but if it isn't make that clear and don't try to hide it in a cover charge. And lets not even get started on forcing a service charge of 10% on customers... Sorry would not come back and would not recommend.
For me, the best restaurant in Brighton
I went for my Birthday and the staff was very helpful. I got a Happy Birthday from the staff and a complementary chocolate dish with a candle. Which was a nice touch. Would definitely go back again when back in Brighton.
This was the second time we've dined here and the food is really fantastic. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful too.
Maria was fantastic. Very welcoming and friendly, good recommendations and lovely service. Great evening. Thanks all L xxx
Very nice meal and pleasant staff
As always excellent food & service.
Visited on 3/8/18 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Waited approximately 50 minutes for our pudding. Which was mediocre on arrival, however having said that my husband and I have visited both restaurants and enjoy the fish very much; we will definitely be back just won’t bother with pudding
Our waiter was super helpful with finding a table where we could our baby's pram, and even helped carry it up the stairs - thank you!
Absolutely perfect plenty of food, service was amazing Elliot was a great waiter. One suggestion if you spend over 700 opening one bottle of champagne not from the restaurant should be okay. Apart from that the night was completely amazing complements to everyone. Thank you
