We were a group of 6 - three couples - celebrating Janet's early retirement. We had a nice table by the window (pre booking essential, and you have to ask for a window seat). We'd asked for a bottle of prosecco to be ready on arrival, and it was. The home made breads are delicious. The Sunday lunch set price... More

On the evening of the 14th of July we celebrated a reunion with our families. From the booking process (we were a large party of 14 people with one child wanting to have dinner on a MONDAY...) to the food and service provided everything went extremely well. The waiter we had was so friendly and smiley he made us feel... More

Service was great and the food was excellent - hot and delicious. The waiting staff were all very friendly and attentive and being able to see into the... More

Riverstation review I've eaten here many times over the years and on the whole had a good experience. The location is fantastic, overlooking the water, and the interior is good. The other night four of us ate in the downstairs wine bar, which is obviously meant to be more casual than the upstairs restaurant, and the food was fine, but... More

Had our third visit to Riverstation yesterday after our son's graduation. They were very busy because the harbour festival was on but the service was still excellent. Yesterday was a light meal but we have been twice before for a more formal 3 course dinner and been very impressed. I always have something a little different that I have not... More

I ate here with 4 colleagues, two of us had scallops and then steak for the main, the remainder spicy mozzarella and then chicken. The scallops were poached rather than fried and they weren't as flavorsome as they should have been, also served with beetroot garnish which overpowered them. The steak was a bit overcooked and the fatty/grisly. So I... More

We visited to celebrate one year of my new business having visited a handful of times before. I find it is definitely a step up from other restaurants with a similar price point. The service is good and the food is interesting and very good overall, the main courses were excellent although my starter, whilst very nice, lacked a little... More

We have been celebrating special occasions at Riversation for years now, as well as enjoying Saturday morning coffee and cakes on a regular basis. We've just celebrated our youngest daughter's graduation with a wonderful meal and fantastic attentive service - Riversation never lets us down, thank you!
