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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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
