We've been to La Riva a number of times over the years and they never disappoint. We chose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary there recently with a group of friends from the UK and they welcomed us with a beautifully decorated table - something we had not expected as we did not recall even mentioning it was our anniversary!!...

This is proper modern upmarket cooking. Menu is sensibly not too large but the Chef knows what he is doing - and he comes out for a chat before you leave. Modern uncluttered dining room and excellent service as well. Would not be disgraced by being in London or Paris.

Our party of four had a fabulous night at La Riva recently. The food is excellent, not to tricky or fussy but interesting in its presentation and execution and use of excellent raw materials The service, was as you would expect in a one star Michelin was very good and the wine list also good with reasonable prices

Although tasty, la riva has become too fancy. I've been there many times over the years but won't go back there too soon. They have a very limited food menu and the few dishes are too sophisticated (only ingredients on menu rather than actual dish). Furthermore, it's really pricey. I prefer cheaper, down to earth restaurants. Also staff was really... More

During our ski holiday week last December in Lenzerheide, we had a dinner at La Riva. The restaurant is located outside the town in a quiet location. Inside the restaurant it has a Swiss chalet style with wooden beams. The tables were decorated festively for the holiday season. The food there is not only tasteful for the tongue and stomach,...

We weren't sure that our almost 11 year old son could cope with the multi-course gourmet menu laid on for New Year's Eve so went here on the 30th Dec instead. What a treat! The ambience, food and service were fabulous, the presentation of the dishes was outstanding, and my son was even invited into the kitchen at the end... More

Amazing restaurant where the food is not only visually beautiful and creative, but also delicious! Every time I have been there has been a wonderful experience with a lovely personnel and a warm atmosphere. Meat dishes and desserts are my favourite, but you will also find tasty salad, soup, and fish, all with a touch of originality (which is usually... More

Could be a Michelin starred restaurant, very good modern cooking and service. We could have been in central London.
