We had a night out from our hotel in Igrane and stopped of for dinner. From the welcome from the waiter Luca, who found us a lovely table for 4 we had a great meal. We were not rushed with ordering the food or drinks, we even had some tuna pate with crusty toast as an appetiser, while we looked... More

We chose this restaurant as it is one of the few that have no pictures of the food outside the restaurant. Kidding aside, it looks much better than most restaurants in the area, with its nice large terrace area. Good food, very good service, not Michelin star material but very reliable. Like many things in Croatia, a bit overpriced

We visit Croatia every year and have been to Makarska often but had never tried Riva before today. After wandering through town we stopped at Riva basically because it has a lovely patio. We were greeted warmly, ordered regional wine, salads, soups and 5 entrees. We were all very pleased with our choices, our service was excellent. We would recommend... More

Wonderful experience! Great atmosphere and superb food. Calamari is a must for a starter and great meat dishes considering seafood is their speciality. Grgic white wine is fantastic!

So we had a lovely meal here. Atmosphere was magical, a lovely courtyard setting and a nice table. Highlight was most certainly the service and in particular the manager. Although the wine in the rest of Croatia was a bit average we had a great bottle here called Gjgić Pošip. The food was good rather than great. Although seafood is... More

Quiet courtyard, good host, professional staff and very good quality food. And the best of it all, it was not expensive. We went twice as the quality of the food was so good and the experience was so pleasant. This is the type of restaurant you travel too even if you are staying one or two towns over, it is... More

Was blown away by the tuna steak here - the waiter was fantastic suggesting the food and wine we all chose and we were happy we took his suggestions! Fresh, flavorsome and really picturesque setting.

We had two meals at Riva in mid June. The first was a great family evening with good but not exceptional food but really good service. The second evening was a disaster as we got in a dispute with the staff over the quality of the fish. In the end we just paid and left. We won't be back. We... More

I ordered fresh fish, wich costed me THREE times as much as a relugar dish, and that was just for the fish! I ordered some vegetables as a side dish. The fish actually tasted really good in itself, but the skin was not cooked crispy. The vegetables was overcooked and tasted pretty boring. My friend's dish had VERY overcooked, grey... More
