Visited today for the first time and was really impressed firstly the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and welcoming. We all found our fish and chips to be very tasty and looking forward to coming back again very soon.

We frequently visited the Rio Fish Restaurant during our holidays throughout the 60's and 70's and found it excellent with regular staff and management. Nice fish and excellent chips, soft on the inside and crisp on the outside!

Burnt, greasy and quite possibly the worst chips I have ever eaten. Despite all the hype I would not visit again

We had the daily special £6.50 for fish and chips, bread and butter and cup of tea. Meal was fresh and of good quality and quantity. Served by a very nice friendly member of staff. All in all very good value for money.

We visit Rio Fish and Chip shop every year when we visit Brixham, the food is incredible and always fresh. As soon as you go in the order is taken and the food is cooked to a very high standard. Staff are very friendly and always accommodate your needs. Thank you all see you again soon.
