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.

I really enjoyed the food and service at RIVA! My waiter Isabelle was extremely professional. Although her English was immaculate, I was suitably impressed that she was patient with me practicing my French:-) and so I ordered a cold soup without realising it! However, I was adventurous and had it and was not disappointed. The food (I had the fish... More

Riva is just a good restaurant with no reason at all to visit it on purpose. If you stay at Hilton it is rather comfortable to go there for dinner. The menu is a regular combination of average European dishes. By the way: the restaurant is not cheap at all.

The menu was fine and the food was well prepared. Service was very good. Attentive without being intrusive.
