Have always been a lover of riva.. However my most recent visit was disappointing. The food which was always top class went seriously downhill.. Felt more like bad pub grub to be honest. Have heard its under new management since Iv last ate there so will try it out again and hopefully it will have improved. As always though the... More

We were regular visitors under the old management so decided to give it a go after a long time away. Really gutted to find how much things have changed. Really slow and sloppy service. Tables left uncleared for 10-15 mins and staff just on a total go slow. Ordered smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and a side of white pudding... More

Booked a table of 18 recently. Staff were nice, not overly so, but can't complain. Food was actually very good, it's just a pity they were quite mean with it! Sides with the main were very mean. Service was a little slow, some things took an age to arrive. I think perhaps it's just more suited to smaller tables of... More

Great night out food perfect. Friendly staff great service. One of my colleagues was drinking bottles of bud which ran out, not a problem a waiter went to the off-licience for more. Wish they had Guinness on tap (not a big fan of Murphy's). Brill night thanks.

Went for dinner here this week . Food great. Plenty of choice and good value. Taste and presentation excellent. Service superb. One of the party has a dairy allergy and they offered great alternative dishes both in main courses and desserts. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and will certainly return again.

Had a meal here celebrating friends impending wedding. Food was truly amazing and so tasty. We had a set menu specially arranged for our friends as large party but the quality was fabulous, couldn't fault any of it. Each course was well presented. Staff incredibly friendly and very happy to help if not sure on choice. Would highly recommend anyone... More
