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.

We booked at short notice on a busy night....Our friends were 45 minutes late....But the people at the Rivington were just great...they held our table...explained the menu and showed us the specials...the meal was just superb...the price was reasonable and we stayed for 5 hours! Even though they were shutting down no one hassled us....This will become my default restaurant!

If you want good food and efficient service always with a smile this the right place. The menu offer the classics but the specials are always there allowing you to try traditional and new dishes. Service is always attentive, genuine and friendly. Good place to unplug and relax during your weekend lunch.

This is definitely my favorite place in Dubai. It's where Dubai people feel comfortable to go regularly, and it's great value for money. The outdoor terrace of Rivington Grill is one of the best places in Downtown Dubai to watch the dancing fountains, and it's equally enjoyable to sit in the cool area inside. The staff is extremely friendly.Try the... More

Visited last week what a nice restaurant. I had a filet steak and my partner had minted lamb chops. Could not fault the food. We also sat on the terrace and watched the fountains whilst eating our dinner. Would recommend booking as very busy.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times now, the first two times I was impressed with the quality of the food and the outstanding service. However this time I was severely disappointed by both mine and my husbands meal, they were extremely ordinary, the duck was not good and the 'curry sauce' for the chicken was so bad that... More
