The concept of offering Riviera Mediterranean cuisine under one kitchen is a unique and innovative combination that is satisfying to local and foreign gourmet foodies that frequent the Riviera nationally and internationally. While pasta, rice dishes, seafood and fish are favorite choices it is the quality and tenderness of the Austrailian Wagyu Beef and Tasmanian Lamb that the Riviera is so well known for.

From the bar a choice of well-balanced wines are offered along with award winning cocktails and a unique selections of beers. For the dessert lovers who just can't decide from our amazing desserts, try our Mini Monte, a 5 spooned signature selection .... Simply Irresistible.

Good Western food options are limited in Dalian, so Riviera is somewhat of an oasis in the desert in that regard. While it may never win Michelin rating, even comparing to the culinary venues in Shanghai or Beijing, though, the food is good enough to hold its own. Well thought out dishes and drinks are not why dinner at Riviera... More

This place served one of the best tenderlions I've ever eaten. Super soft meat and a fantastic tomato soup I've tried copying since my stay in Dalian. My very best recommendations to anyone who wants to pay a bit extra for the very best.

This is without doubt the best dining experience in Dalian. Food and wine is brilliant and the service from Jennifer and Michael and the team is exemplary. Great choice on the menu with the Wagyu steaks simply outstanding but the pasta dishes and salads are also memorable. Whatever you do if you are staying at Shangri-La or Furama or Somerset... More

If you're in Dalian and getting tired of Chinese food, the Riviera is the place to go. Even if you're not, give it a try regardless. Jennifer is a wonderful host and made us feel right at home the very first time we walked in. It's located right off Renmin Rd and across the street from the Shanghi-La hotel. My... More

I am leaving in Shg and we are used to have nice restaurant. Moreover, coming from the south of France.. i am a food lover. I came to the Riviera with some doubts about an Italian and French cuisine in a second-tiers city... WAHOU. A marvellous surprise.
