We had an amazing evening in the private dining room for a surprise birthday. Food and service were both excellent - thank you so much!

A truly wonderful meal, my tempura prawns are the freshest and best I have ever had and my wife really enjoyed her turbot and lobster bisque. Service was very attentive, but not overly so. Looking to come back in the summer when we can enjoy the beach views a bit more than at winter time Peter Parr, Haywards Heath

Lighting in the upstairs part of the restaurant was slightly depressing. Could be improve to make that area more inviting at night.

Excellent service, delicious food. The sashimi starter was to die for. Absolutely scrumptious for a business lunch.

Lovely staff and we really enjoyed the lobster Thermidor. All the fish and seafood we had was cooked perfectly. Very tasty and reasonably priced, we were trying to splash out for our anniversary but it still came to less than we expected!

Really amazing service, the mains may have been a bit too salty however our waitress was great and attentive. Felt very looked after during our whole experience. Would definitely return on our next visit to Brighton!

As ever had a really lovely meal. Ate at an unusual time (4pm) so was very quiet but were given beautiful table in the window so we could watch the sunset. Great service as always and food totally delicious. Will keep coming back

All was superb as usual although the restaurant became rather cold for me - I needed to put my coat on towards the end of the meal.

It was all absolutely perfect- thank you for the happy birthday plate! The only reason for 4 out of 5 stars for atmosphere was due to it being quite cold inside the restaurant. Great nonetheless, will definitely be returning!!

We have come down from Bedford for my wife’s birthday and had been here a few months ago so we ensured we were going to come back having had a great meal last time. We had been to the Salt Room for lunch and had spent £112 on an o.k experience where we had gone through the menu but still felt hungry owing to small portion sizes . I am pleased to say Riddle and Finns didn’t let us down . We paid £111 for our evening meal and the difference in quality and quantity of food was palpable. Once again a great menu to choose from and even on a bleak Sunday evening at the beginning of January the standards were still excellent. We would travel here ( 2 hours plus ) just for the food . The waitress who served us said she hadn’t tried the Salt Room yet , so I told her not to bother .

This was a special outing for my wife's birthday. Pretty well the ideal place for a meal as we had a first floor table next to the window overlooking the beach.. However, the high prices, plus 12.5% service, plus a cover charge make it a costly place to eat.That said, the service was perfect. Marco was informative and attentive and although we had to dissuade him from organizing a chorus of Happy Birthday, he did produce an extra (small) sweet dish for my wife with that greeting written in chocolate. She was delighted with the whole experience.
