Fodor's Expert Review Riddle & Finns The Lanes

$$ Brighton Seafood Fodor's Choice

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 foaming tankard of black velvet (champagne and Guinness) on the side. Other options include smoked haddock in a proscuitto and champagne sauce or pan-roasted monkfish tail with sautéed gnochi. The restaurant doesn't take reservations, so come early or be prepared to wait. However, you can reserve a table at their sister restaurant, Riddle & Finns The Beach (139 King's Rd. Arches, 01273/821218), overlooking the sea. The menu is largely the same, with a few meaty options thrown into the mix. Come before 7:15 on weekdays for the outstandingly good value set menu (two courses for just £15.95).
