Hidden delight.
  10 / 10
A top class restaurant. Contrary to very early reviews I believe this establishment is now achieving the highest standards. Service, presentation and ultimately the food were all simply excellent. Do yourself a favour, if you are local forget traveling to a good restaurant, it is on your doorstep, if you live a distance away, make the effort to travel and give yourself a real treat.

Top Quality Restaurant - Worth a Visit
  10 / 10
I visited the Riverside Restaurant in Blackwood (also known as the Rock and Fountain) for the first time this week and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is impressive and the service was first rate. I had the haddock to start which was beautifully cooked and presented followed by the duck which was also very good. I did think that the food was quite pricy to start with but after enjoying my meal so much and not being able to find fault with it, I concluded that it was well worth the money. I was too full for dessert but the menu looked equally as appetising; I canâ??t wait to try the vanilla cheesecake with mulled wine when I go back in a couple of weeks. I also notice that they have just set up a website which has various special offers for groups so take a look at that before you go - www.riversideblackwood.com.

Exceptional and much needed
  9 / 10
We visited The Riverside on a quiet Thursday evening. The restaurant itself is quite stunning and the food unpretentious and well cooked. A small menu and perhaps a few more fish dishes and chicken dishes could be available but that is a small aside. They have an extensive wine list catering for all pockets. We were delighted with our choice of food... for starters, scallops & chorizo, chicken and red pepper pate with red onion chutney - absolutely delicious! The steaks were divine and melt in the mouth and cooked to perfection. A charming & courteous waiter added to a lovely evening. Will definitely be going back there again!

Brilliant
  9 / 10
Visited here for the first time and was shocked to think something as nice as this was in Blackwood. It is clearly head and shoulders above everything else in the area.

Menu was well thought out, as it gives you a mix of good traditional cooking and some of the pretentious meals you see on some menus. The balance was perfect. The wine selection was good, but could do with a bit more new world wine by the glass.

The setting was beautiful and the staff were very kind and obviously were pleased to be there. Could not fault the service.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. If you are, then go to a fancier restaurant in Cardiff or go to a Harvester, where you belong.
