Visiting from out of town, we found the most curious restaurant under an archway. The food was very very good and the staff super friendly. We loved every moment and will remember it fondly as a wonderful night despite the rainy weather!

We had a wonderful long lunch at Riddle and Fins on the beach on Saturday. The service was so fantastic (they even managed to accommodate our change to four people from two people with no fuss at all.) They dried out tables for us outside after the rain for us to sit out and nothing was too much trouble. Food was fabulous. 5 stars. Cannot wait to return.

Disappointed that there was only one toilet which wasn’t particularly clean. Quality of the food was outstanding as was the service. £9.50 a bit steep for a medium glass of muscadet 175ml

Thank you for a lovely evening. We waited slightly longer than we'd like for our table - it would have been nice to be offered a drink whilst we waited. However - our table waiter was outstanding! Food was delicious - pricey - but worth every penny. Lovely wine too. We will be back.

One of the best meals I've had, matched with the great and personable service. The Halibut in particular was exceptional.

All very good as our previous visits, but the speed of service was appalling, well over an hour to get starters, and main course timing was equally bad But when the food came, it was very good

We had two excellent meals at the Arches site while on our holiday (Tues 04/06 and Fri 07/06). All the courses were delicious, the fish and vegetables perfectly cooked (the roasted monkfish was especially good) and the service friendly and well paced. This restaurant was recommended to us by several Brighton regulars and we'd definitely agree. Gets busy so booking a good idea.

I am a huge fan of Riddle and Finns. The food is extraordinary and the ambiance is amazing. I also love the friendly attitude of the staff. Overall, I love this place, one of my fav spots in Brighton as a big fish-seafood fan.

My partner had the seafood linguine, which was very gritty. So we were both very disappointed with this

Great food and table next to window overlooking beach was fantastic. Service good, friendly and impressed that the waitress pointed out the 12.5% discretionary service fee was already added to the bill to stop us adding tips to the payment

Just perfect . The only slight criticism I have is that some air- con when it’s busy would be beneficial, other than that it was a fabulous menu , backed up by excellent service and good quality food . A BIG thanks to all those involved in contributing to us having such a fabulous experience.
