Description: Spreading its wings far from Shoreditch’s Rivington Street original in London, Rivington Grill, Souk Al Bahar was the first to open in Dubai, followed by a second, Rivington Bar and Grill that opened in 2012. The restaurant, located in the cosmopolitan Downtown area, is very well known in Dubai and is famed and loved for its seasonal menu, simplistic décor, friendly staff and fantastic views. The Rivington Grill concept is ‘back to basics’ home cooked food, offering authentic British classics, with what the chef’s call ‘a Rivi twist’.The adjoining terrace is the restaurant’s highlight; sitting over the water ways of the Dubai Fountains, with the Burj Khalifa looming just meters away, it offers one of the best vistas in the city, and makes a great space for sundowners and dinner parties at dusk. As well as the á la carte menu and the blackboard specials, the restaurant also offers ‘The Rivi Lunch Hour’ which is a new take on the common ‘business lunch’, where a 2 course lunch will be all done and dusted within an hour for just 100 AED.

I was visiting my brother in Dubai and he took me for lunch here. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the staff were great. My brother ordered steak and I had traditional fish & chips. The meal was amazing and we both loved our food. My brother said it was one of the best steak he'd had in Dubai.

Location is simply stunning - terrace is facing burj Khalifa and dubai fountains. There is underground parking under souk al bahar so getting there is not a problem. But that's not the best thing about Rivi - food is gourmet and atmosphere is simply incredible. They have recently changed the menu- must try items: corn beef hush, Devonshire dressed crab,... More

Food was decent enough, and the fountains are obviously a big attraction (though becomes slightly tiresome as everyone gets up every half an hour to take bloody photos) - but our meal was hampered by our poor waiter who really struggled to understand what we (a Brit and an Aussie) were trying to say. I asked for a pint of... More

If you are on a beach holiday take just one afternoon and evening off to visit the Dubai Mall (which is worth a visit but is NOT lower prices than London), go to the top of Burj Kalifa which is stunning and very well organised, but most of all have dinner at the Rivington. Book early to get an outside... More

My friend and I came here for a well deserved ladies night out. We were not disappointed at any level. The food was great, the service was attentive and swift and the vibe was good.

This place is a "must do" when visiting Dubai. The location of the restaurant is perfect- right at the base of the Burj Al Arab (tallest building in the world) and adjacent to the Dubai Mall fountains which fire off regularly during the evening. Inside the restaurant it is relaxed (by Dubai standards) comfortable and unhurried. There are plenty of... More
