One of the best restaurants I’ve been in Makarska. The food was unbelievable good, amazing black ink risotto. Super fresh. This’s the why I went twice 😬 the lobster (3kg 😱) tagliatelle (home made) was delicious. Well done guys. 👏🏻 ⭐️

The restaurant has a very nice terrace. The ambiance is also given by the slow music. The waiter was professional and gave us good recommendations. The food was good, but not as you would expect from an expensive restaurant. Having said that, the restaurant is...pricy but still recommend it for the experience.More

Deserve the no.1 spot- it’s a lovely restaurant serving an array of delicious dishes. Social distancing was observed and every single member of staff wore their mask correctly- over the nose and mouth. Lovely atmosphere with great staff who genuinely want you to have a...great experience- go, you won’t be disappointed!More

The first thing that catches your eye is the beautiful interior and exterior. Everyone would agree, it's nice to have a nice meal in a place with mountain views. The staff was very polite and friendly. Thanks to this attitude of the waiter, you feel...like at a reception somewhere in the palace. Huge selection of dishes and wines, you won't leave this place hungry. An important feature is that there is always fresh fish and meat on the showcase, so that you can choose something right from the showcase and it will be prepared for you. Prices are above average If you are on a budget, I recommend previewing the menu on the site. Restaurant Riva is a great place where you will want to return.More

Had the most tasteful dinner having a late summer get together with my family. I’m bummed I forgot to take a photo of the food before eating cause it all looked so good and tasted amazing. I had ribeye and veggies with a side of...homemade potato chips. Everyone else had fish with chard and loved it. Super fresh ingredients and the wine list was extensive and well selected. I highly recommend this place. Great ambience and mellow music and professional and friendly staff. I’m picky but can’t find anything wrong here. If you’re ever in Makarska this is a great place to have a fancier and high quality dinner experience.More

We had a plate for 2. Except for the fact that you can totally feed 3 people from it, it was absolutely amazing. The fish was so fresh that it was actually swimming in the sea earlier in the morning. Everything was the best we've...had in Croatia, from the atmosphere, the serving and the food. Very good job guys! Will totally recommend it!!More
