Lovely location, great view and food.

Have to say, our waitress was the best, she did more than all 3 of the waiters. Respect. We ordered the meat platter for main, which was good size and well presented and cooked. Sat upstairs and outside, following a rainstorm. A nice visit.

Nice atmosphere, a level of sophistication with the plating even though the offering is largely similar to other Bol restaurants. good food preparation and cooking degree. Good wine including the wine from the cellar door in Bol. Friendly waiters and over very happy with our experience. I would be happy to return.

We ordered two risottos,were good...service was pleasant,but the price is too high.The value of money is not the quality of food.

We were tried to order food for breakfast but were told by the waitress after we had been brought drinks breakfast would not be served for a few days. This was surprising as menus were out on the tables. The place itself was very smoky.

After trying almost all the restaurants on the Bol venter waterfront we found that this place had the most professional service and best food. A little bit more pricey than some of the others, but it's worth it. The lighter dishes (pasta/salads) seem to be priced like the other restaurants and are a bargain.

The food is excellent as is the service. We had clams and fish, everything was fresh and grilled on wood! Highly recommended to visit.

Great setting, service was first class and food was outstanding. We ate here twice during our stay. My wife and I shared the fish platter which was stunning especially the tuna that had been caught that day, cream of broccoli soup was decent as well. Second time my wife had the salmon and I had pork fillet and both was... More

Had a pleasant stay at Taverna Riva with a very lovely hostess/ waiter. We had lamb that were really good and a really good bottle of wine from the local winery in Bol. A bit unlucky that the local cultural house in Bol is situated right next to Riva, so it was a bit noisy from a Zumba/Latino dancing class... More

I was impressed by the casual pizzeria downstairs. It was well priced and the coffee was very nice. Also there was a beautiful view as you are only metres from the water. Upstairs is more of an evening venue, there was lots to choose from and if you are sat at the wall the view is lovely. The waitress was... More

we had lunch here around 1pm on a Wednesday - no issues getting a great table overlooking the sea (really hard to find a bad view at any of the places in Bol). We ate on the upstairs terrace (as others mentions, separate cafe downstairs, not sure if they serve small bites - maybe pizza?). We had appetiser of shrimp... More
