Delicious dinner in The Riva restaurant with experienced team member Andre. Local fish was just delicious. And the location is perfect just on the promenade with view.

Very nice experience overall. The place is cozy and relax. The staff is super, and service overall has exceeded expectations. Meal was delicious from the beginning to the end. A nice amuse-bouche proposed - always gives a nice impression! We had chasse and st.jacque - everything was made to perfection. I felt that dessert cart was a bit light for... More

So pleased this restaurant has opened again for the season. It's probably the best in town and when the sun is shining it certainly has a fantastic location. Talented chefs provide great quality food whilst well trained bar staff look after your beverage desires.

We were for the second evening in this restaurant and we ordered lamb. It was cold when it arrived and we have sent it back. We felt sorry but even the re-make was not as expected. Luckily we had a great dinner the night before,

With all the review I saw here, I was not sure to go there .. But it was really great, all the people there are very kind and helpful. Ok, we wait a little bit to much for the food but ... the atmosphere is perfect and for sure somehting you cannot find in the other restaurants around.

Its a perfect place for gourmand and gourmet people. Just find it to be in the wrong location. Evian has no young generation coming for food, so the atmosphere is missing compared to the one in Dubai...

Pretentious décor, barely-trained staff, and expensive menu with strange unappetising items on it. The green salad was OK but dressing tasted bottled. The chicken breast was inedible (overcooked and tasteless). The bean soup was disgusting, with crunchy undercooked white beans soaked in grease. Don't go there! Lots of local places are just a few minutes' walk away!

I had dinner at Riva last week, I loved the modern ambiance, especially the couch by the chimney where we seated. Good service, beautiful plates and surprising flavours without being too extreme. The catalan coca appetizer was a delight and the lamb's sauce with thyme, dates summer vegetables and sesame was supreme. Worth a try!
