Fodor's Review

White tiles, bare metal tables, and sparkling chandeliers set the tone as soon as you walk through the door of this casually elegant restaurant. The house specialty is oysters, fresh and sustainably sourced, served with or without a tankard of black velvet (champagne and Guinness) on the side. Other options include wild sea bass served with aubergine caviar and red pepper coulis, or local cod with squid ink risotto. Come before 7:15 on weekdays for the outstandingly good value set menu (two courses for just £13). It's also open weekends for breakfast—and, yes, they serve oysters and champagne. The restaurant doesn't take bookings, so come early or be prepared to wait. However, you can reserve a table at their new sister restaurnt, Riddle & Finns 2 (139 King's Arches, 01273/821218), overlooking the sea. The menu is largely the same, with a few meaty options thrown in, too.
