I love the salmon on pesto rice! I have tried other things there, but always go back to this. The pesto has just the right kick!

We were in Greer this weekend doing a BBQ contest and decided to try this restaurant. There were 10 of us and we are all professional BBQers so we may be more critical than most. None of us would return. The quality of food and the price they charge for it was very out of balance. Veal was tough, the... More

Being fairly new to the area, we have kept our dining out pretty much to the restaurants downtown. Our friend mentioned Rivera's right after I had read about it so we gave it a try. The service was attentive and the server engaging and fun. The food was really good with a slight Cuban flair. I had the shrimp, my... More

This little cafe always has excellent, tasty dishes and always delivers wonderful food and service. A favorite of locals for business lunches plus a great place for dinner. Right in the heart of downtown Greer.

Excellent food! Excellent atmosphere! Probably the best restaurant in Greer. It is pricey but that goes with the territory of eating out at a nice restaurant. Rumor has it it's the most haunted area in Greer too so that kind of fun too. ;-)

The food was good. They charge you the same price for a glass of water as they do for tea. Way over priced for the tiny dessert you are served. Won't go back.

We enjoyed the Cuban sandwich, the black bean soup, and Caesar salad so much for Thursday night's dinner that we returned for a sandwich and soup Friday at lunch. The staff were welcoming and attentive.

Some of the best pork and salmon I have ever had. Great, personal service. The pesto rice and fried plantains are so tasty!

I've been here multiple times ... lunch and dinner, business and casual. It is quickly becoming a favorite place for everything. The Cuban sandwich is perfect, the entrees are outstanding. When they have escolar as a fish catch of the day, go for it! The steaks are good. The sausage appetizer is great. In fact, I could just check off... More
