The Riviera offers quality food including one of the best carvaries on a Sunday that you will find very hard to beat anywhere.

Centrally located in Selsey. Large popular restaurant/cafe with locals, holiday visitors and motor cyclists. Outdoor seating and limited roadside parking immediately outside. The all inc. English breakfast obviously a favourite when we visited. Staff well trained, polite and attentive.

I have eaten at this restaurant, many times over the years, particularly as a small child and recently celebrated my 50th birthday here with family and friends.

Choice of a couple of curries complete with raitia & chutney pompadoms etc plus a drink, or if you don't like curry there is a brilliant menu to choose from. Waiting staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble!

Me and my wife both ordered the breakfast here, it sadly was not great at all. The food used was cheap and when I asked for no tomato most places offer extra bacon but no such offer here... so the plate was pretty bare as well. Poor service.
