FABULOUS FOOD AND SETTING

Certainly worth a visit, had lovely food at a lunch time, sat outside on terrace with lovely view of the coast line, only negative was male server who I think would rather have been at home than working, just did basic, would not put us off revisiting as food was so tasty and beautifully presented.

Riso specialises in rice dishes but the food is delicious. The prawns with mango mayonnaise to start are fabulous. The risottos are wonderful and accompany different meat or fish dishes. The fillet steak was the best I've ever had anywhere. My only criticism is the wines are expensive and a bottle of house wine at €19 is exorbitant.

We chose this restaurant based on reviews and view. Note that the restaurant is closed on Mondays. The view was very nice. As a starter, I has mixed vegetable so nothing could go wrong. the main course I had was asparagus risotto with scallops - i felt the rice was overcooked. As a desert we chose tiramisu but were disappointed... More

Restaurant with a good lunch menu, and great view. The service was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to try the dinner menu. One word of advice (not criticism) - if the wind is strong and from the east, take something warm with you as it can be cold and exposed on the terrace.

Nice location with views over the ocean. Has had lunch here before but this was our first, but not our last, dinner. As the name indicates everything is centered around rice and I personally was a bit skeptical but they really surprised me. Easily the best rice-based meal I have ever had. The staff was very good and funny (really... More

This is in the old town and to get here you pass through all the painted doors etc. We both had delicious pea and ham soup to start and one of us had sardines the other a meat dish both lovely....

They arrived together with greetings from the kitchen. While enjoying the drinks we asked the waitress about vino verdevthey had on... More

Riso has an absolutely fantastic location on the rocks in old town with brilliant sea views. Food is good but you must enjoy rice accompaniments - fillet steak is excellent as is their fish dishes. Staff attentive. Book table in advance to ensure a good one at the windows.

You need to like rice, but the food is delicious and different from other restaurants around. The price is reasonable if you choose from the Suggested Menu

As long as you like rice, this is the place to eat. Beautiful location with uninterrupted views of the sea. Option of inside and outside dining both with the views of the sea. Food was well prepared and full of flavour.
