“Nice setting for a classy dinner in Evian”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

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!

“A good alternative to the gourmet places in town.”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

If you stay at the Hilton, don't go any further, enjoy food "at home" :) Price comparable to quality and kind service and attention can not be bought.

“Only OK”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Hilton in Evian is an excellent place to stay, but I'm afraid that the food in its restaurant is very average. Rather unusually there is no access from the hotel lobby, you have to go outside and round the corner to the restaurant entrance. The staff were friendly - no criticism there - but the food was rather disappointing; we had the entrecote which was tough and too chewy. I think our disappointment was enhanced because there are so many nice looking restaurants in Evian.

“Ambitious but uneven”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I ate their twice during my stay in Evian and had one fairly good and one rather bad food experience - avoid the vegetarian tortellini if you can, it contains very little vegetables (surprising for a vegetarian dish!) and was very bland. My wife was very satisfied with her food (especially the grilled sea bass), though.

The view over the Lake Geneva is great, of course.

“Very Average”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Average Hotel Restaurant with uninspiring service, The food is not bad, but also not great. Prices are too high and not in line with the quality of the establishment. It works if you stay in the Hotel and don't feel like going into town. There is no direct access from the Hotel to the restaurant. It is located below the Hotel at the street level about 100 meters (300 feet) downhill. That's OK, unless it is raining.
