We recently visited Riddle and Finns and was lucky enough to have amazing weather so we're seated outside. Having the satay prawns and scallops to start both were delicious. The mackerel pate that comes with the bread was very tasty. We both had lobster for...More

Love the location and decor of this restaurant if you are going to put a fish restaurant on the beach it needs to be good and R&F doesn't disappoint. Service was faultless from the moment we walked though the door and the staff seemed very...More
