Nice place

With all the review I saw here, I was not sure to go there .. But it was really great, all the people there are very kind and helpful. Ok, we wait a little bit to much for the food but ... the atmosphere is perfect and for sure somehting you cannot find in the other restaurants around.

Its a perfect place for gourmand and gourmet people. Just find it to be in the wrong location. Evian has no young generation coming for food, so the atmosphere is missing compared to the one in Dubai...

Pretentious décor, barely-trained staff, and expensive menu with strange unappetising items on it. The green salad was OK but dressing tasted bottled. The chicken breast was inedible (overcooked and tasteless). The bean soup was disgusting, with crunchy undercooked white beans soaked in grease. Don't go there! Lots of local places are just a few minutes' walk away!

I had dinner at Riva last week, I loved the modern ambiance, especially the couch by the chimney where we seated. Good service, beautiful plates and surprising flavours without being too extreme. The catalan coca appetizer was a delight and the lamb's sauce with thyme, dates summer vegetables and sesame was supreme. Worth a try!

If you stay at the Hilton, don't go any further, enjoy food "at home" :) Price comparable to quality and kind service and attention can not be bought.

The Hilton in Evian is an excellent place to stay, but I'm afraid that the food in its restaurant is very average. Rather unusually there is no access from the hotel lobby, you have to go outside and round the corner to the restaurant entrance. The staff were friendly - no criticism there - but the food was rather disappointing;... More

I ate their twice during my stay in Evian and had one fairly good and one rather bad food experience - avoid the vegetarian tortellini if you can, it contains very little vegetables (surprising for a vegetarian dish!) and was very bland. My wife was very satisfied with her food (especially the grilled sea bass), though. The view over the... More

Average Hotel Restaurant with uninspiring service, The food is not bad, but also not great. Prices are too high and not in line with the quality of the establishment. It works if you stay in the Hotel and don't feel like going into town. There is no direct access from the Hotel to the restaurant. It is located below the... More

Despite the negative remarks of the previous reviewers (who probably eat every evening in a five star restaurant), we decided to stay and eat in our hotel restaurant after a long trip. We had decided no to try the other Lebanese restaurant as we did not quite see its place in this context. The RIVA is below the Hilton hotel,... More

We ate here one night whilst staying at the Hilton hotel of which it is part. despite saying that they opened at 6.30pm, we could not get in unit after 7pm. Food was mixed - some things food, some poor for a Hilton restaurant. We tried other options for our other nights in Evian.
