After reading all the positive reviews we were quite disappointed by the standard of food which was average. With this in mind, the prices seemed pretty expensive. You could have a really great meal back at home in London for the same price.

You need to make a reservation to get into this place!!! The service is top notch; great menu, wine list, terrace overlooking the sea...we even had a Croatian mariachi band perform the night that we were there...great experience, good time! Unforgettable!

Didn't know about the place- were concentrated on the place next to it- Santo, but liked the Taverna Riva menu better. 30 min of wait for seating was definitely worth it! Ordered sea bass, but with grilled vegetables instead of potatoes- simply Excellent! We didn't even want to order a dessert, not to get rid of the amazing aftertaste from... More

Went there on recommendation by sommelier from Stina winery. Have to say I was disappointed. The service was ok, but the food was average at best and the prices are funny for what they are offering. The swordfish steak was too dry, like a shoe sole. Wine list very short. No wines by glass. The location was really good and... More

We go to Bol for our summer vacation every year. Next to summer cinema and Zlatni rat, eating in Riva is part of the whole Bol experience. We know that it is packed in high season, so we prefer to take an early dinner, before it gets crazy. We enjoy everything about this restaurant. As we tried a lot of... More

We ordered two pizza's with prosciutto, but waiter said that they don't have prosciutto, though they got it in their menu. Waiter suggested other pizza with some other kind of smoked ham. We ate pizza, taste was not good, dough was crispy and that's was only good thing. I do not recommend this restaurant for eating pizza. Service was also... More

This is the best restaurant in Bol and perhaps even Brač. It is ran by the same family for decades and this shows in a positive way. The standard of food quality is high, the service is attentive but not in your face, the wine list is good, location is superb. We had the best octopus salad there. We also... More
