The food was well presented but no veg or accompanying food with the dish I ordered (hake) that's all that was on the plate. 4 options for each dinner course so very limited choice. Charged for a bottle of wine we didn't get although we spotted it. Although food was delicious I wouldn't go back for dinner as not good value for money.

Nice friendly waiter who was very helpful with the menu. Quirky surroundings with riddles everywhere. We spent a while when we went in trying to solve some of them. Lovely food. Nice bread served while we were choosing. I had the goats cheese followed by the hake from the early bird menu. Top class presentation. The only fault was with the side of sautéed potatoes which were a bit oily. I would definately recommend The Riddler and as I will be back.

Lovely evening. From greeting at the door to the service, the food all was great. Balieys Creme Brûlée was delish! Thanks to Ziggy and all the staff.

We had a very good starter salad with duck, and a great steak, which was cooked exactly to our order. Also the fish was very good.

I've been here twice and, apart from the Old Dublin on Francis St in the '80s, there hasn't been anywhere like it. The first time I wandered in for lunch and I suppose, old fashionedly, waited for service. Happily, the man I imagine is either the owner or manager, recognised this, greeted me and brought me to a table, gave me menus and offered me water. I ordered a glass of red wine and the confit duck wrap and it was tasty, duck and wine.
My second visit was for the Sunday brunch menu and this time I brought a friend. She had the goat's cheese salad and I had the seafood chowder. We both had glasses of Swallow's Tail Chenin blanc. She loved the salad and its unobtrusive vinaigrette. I found the chowder brimming with chunks of fish, white and smoked, plenty of cubed vegetables and a sauce that was neither cloying or heavy but flavoursome and appetising.
Of course, no brunch is worth its sea salt without a brace of alcohol, a hair of the dog cocktail like a Bloody Mary but,regretfully, as loving as it was prepared, it lacked the Tabasco bite I like and asked for, the one cloud on an otherwise sunny day. Will I return? Absolutely. They've started doing evening meals and I'm going to be a regular.
