All was perfect in Riva. The staff is very professional and friendly. I had booked the table in advanced and, when arrived, all was rightly prepared. The food was excellent, with a variety of dishes from different regions; all with a "French cuisine" touch... which I like very much. The list of wines is also good, where you can find... More

We had a friendly dinner here. The staff were absolutely lovely and the food surprisingly good. We shared two bottles of wine which were both good. Food: 4/5 nice French inspired food at a price a little bit higher than other places but good value. Portions were generous and extremely well presented. I had the scallops with lobster bisque to...

Riva used to be a fine dining place in the past. Not so anymore, well the food is ok but so are hundreds of places in Jakarta. Unfortunately they have now turned it into a mix of a sports bar, night club, disco etcetc place. It is totally impossible to have a normal conversation inside the restaurant as the decibels...

I came here twice, the first time when it was headed by the French Chef and the second time when it's been merged with the Bar and led by Chef Deden. I have nothing bad to say on my first visit. Le Mille Feuille was really mouth watering. My second visit was just good. The Scallop Risotto was perfect (appetizer)... More

Riva has long been a well established French restaurant in Jakarta, regularly reviewed and awarded throughout the years. We decided to visit it recently treat ourselves following some good news. I reserved online, but didn't receive an answer by mail, so I had to call to find out about our reservation, which was immediately confirmed. I had asked for a... More

The new Riva combined the old 1 with Stix (the closed down steakhouse) & the ambience was nice, especially with an outdoor area facing the swimming pool. Service was friendly & professional but sometimes the server was m.i.a. (missing-in-action) even though there were only a few of us there. Food & drinks ranged from the standard to pretty good variety... More

Had been to the old Riva a number of times, generally had a very good meal there. In some ways, I prefer this one. Their new menu is simpler, but they do everything well. This is not "excellent" in the sense of unusual dishes / amazing ingredients etc. But the food that they make was all excellently done; no complaints... More
