Chose the restaurant for a birthday based on Trip reviews and they were right. Nice view from the top floor of a surprisingly sunny February Saturday, friendly professional service and very good food. Good broad menu covering everything from fruits de mer platters to fish curry. You know you are in good hands when the bread comes with a punchy... More

Great food, good view and friendly service. The receptionist was not as friendly which is a shame. We booked a table for 3 pax to celebrate. Our waiter was friendly. We still prefer going to their other R&F at the Lanes. The receptionist is very nice and friendly, waiting staff are always happy to see you and of course the... More

We had visited Riddle and Finns in the lanes before so thought we would give the beach restaurant a try. We had the classic seafood platter to start which was full to the brim of seafood, really tasty and fresh. Followed by the shellfish risotto and the crab linguini - both delicious. Fantastic service, attentive and helpful. The lanes restaurant... More

We had a romantic Valentines lunch for 10 at Riddle and Finn yesterday. Our waiter was Arthur and he was a superstar. As always the food was excellent, I had the fish cakes ( which are enormous) followed by the curry. Arthur looked after us very well indeed, he was speedy, smiley, helpful and a very nice young man. We... More

We love Brighton especially the amazing variety of places to eat. This time we discovered the Riddle and Fin beach resturant. A little pearl under the arches on the beach. The seafood is fresh and delightfully presented. The atmosphere is quite unique and service accommodating and helpful. I would advise booking, it's very popular because it's just so good and...

Our meal was lovely, smoked haddock on colcannon with poached egg on top! My partner had the Keralan fish curry! We shared a specially made for Valentines sweet, a chocolate heart, very yummy. Our wine was the simple Pinot Grigio, very drinkable. The atmosphere was very pleasant and service perfect! Arthur was our waiter and excellent in every respect.
