15 minutes drive to the beautiful seashores of Melbourne, we had an evening at the Riva St. Kilde. Food was splendid - salmon or steak, both are superb. On top of all we received such a warm and efficient service, we felt at home. Thank you Lindie Wiese for making this evening extra special.

I have been here a few times on Sunday afternoons and evenings and have had a really relaxing and enjoyable time. A few drinks outside on the balcony in the sun overlooking the Bay watching the sun go down. I have always found the clients very friendly,all different ages from 20's through to mid 50's, the atmosphere and music is... More

The Barra others had was reported as good. Desserts-The sorbets were worth... More

Have been a few a times previously. Went with a group of Friends to celebrate our 50th Birthdays, great food and very good service. Various dishes ordered and no complaints from any of the party. Setting is ideal, with fantastic view and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely come back

I'm in my late 20s and enjoy coming here in the summer for a few drinks outside in the sun. The music is good, atmosphere is fun & relaxed. Good place to meet up with friends for a social catch up. I agree that seating is at times scarce, and staff are not overly helpful with accommodating for anyone's needs.... More

We stopped in here after a jet boat ride for lunch. We asked for a seating for 6 and was told we could wait or go sit out on the deck. We decided that the deck would be fine. We managed to find two round tables (one with the last people's meals and THREE ashtrays still on it). We cleaned... More

Riva is a great place for either an evening for drinkies, followed by dinner or equally good place to have a quick and decent dinner. Food was of good quality and service was efficient and friendly. The view is a bonus, of course. Definitely coming back.

Great lactation topped with great food and nightlife. We visit Melbourne at least 3 times a year for weekends away from the kids. We go here every time for drinks and dinner. I recommend the seafood linguine.

On a crappy day weather wise dining at Riva made us forget about the weather. Pre drinks around an open fire before we sat down. We then started with some bread and followed with mains of the baramundi and eye fillet. Barramundi was ok, not the greatest but my eye fillet was perfect, I asked for medium and that is... More

You really pay for the beach side location with Riva. The meals aren't cheap and not very large. But it's trying to be more fine dinning which is fair enough. Not a bad experience but not amazing.
