Amazing and good price food served in few minutes

We sat, ordered in 1 minute and served 2 minutes after that in half full restaurant. It was simple without unnecessary decoration, roasted piglet and lamb with potatoes with local tomatoes (best I've tried in my life). We couldn't eat all and they have us the box to take out the rest.

We ordered the local special pork which came from the rotating grill. The serving was very delicious and tasty. For 2 person also enough the porcion. Price also acceptable and the staff was very friendly.

We were here late on a Sunday afternoon, there were guests at only one table. There was one lamb on the grill and we asked when will it be ready. After they answered they still have from the previous one, and we don't have to wait, we decided to stay and eat there as we were pretty hungry. This turned... More

Good food in a simple restauranf a couple of km from old town. If you stay in this area this is worth one evening instead of old town. Good food from the grill, lot of locals and nice atmosphere

As a family, we have eaten at the Riva regularly over 8 years. It is invariable good and does not pretend to be anything other than a traditional Croatian Grill/Roast restaurant. No Michelin pretensions here. Hearty portions of well cooked food including fantastic roast lamb, pork & fowl are its stock-in-trade. It is always busy and open all year through... More

We are staying around the corner and noticed it as walked past on our way into the centre, they was just starting the 3 wood fire bbqs. We got back late that night and thought we'd try and see if anywhere local was open and remembered seeing this. So we turned up at 10.30pm on a Tuesday and they was... More

We were really satisfied with food in this restaurant: they have the best adriatic calamari -grilled I have eaten in this area (and I often order them). My boyfriend took their famous lamb ...he is still thinking of it... We will surely turn back despite the restaurant is not so nice furnished and not suitable for romantic dinner :)

For more than 10 years, the inevitable restaurant with good lamb. Quality is always the same and I have never disappoints. Great staff that I also have the same decades. The prices are reasonable.

We went here as we heard it was slightly cheaper and more of a locals restaurant than all the city centre establishments. We left feeling we had been ripped off all week, our entire meal (2 main courses, sides and drinks) came to around £15. The staff are very friendly and you feel like it is a real Croatian dining...
