“No extra value”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

In Piran, there are plenty of better choises to recommand, such as Ivo nearby (really fresh fishes), but my favorite is 100% Pri Mari on the other side of town, near bus station.
In Riva you can get just a food if you are really hungry and nothing more. But yes it is true - nice view too, in package with a little cold and sterile atmosphere.

“Better than most in what it does”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Riva is one of the restaurants lining the waterfront promenade in Piran. Their purpose seems first and foremost to be to provide a place to watch the sea and the sunset, and only secondarily to offer a satisfying eating experience. After one such experiment (at a very crowded Tri Vdove), we were a bit sceptical of going back to another of these rather samey establishments, but the fact that our original choices were closed meant we wound up here.

As it happens, it wasn't such a bad move after all. The tagliatelle with smoked salmon wasn't bad at all and the whole gilt-head bream (orada) served up for two was actually very good, and the place seemed a cut above the rest, without charging extortionately for having possibly the best view of any of the places on the strip.

So if you have an urgent need to watch the sun go down over the Adriatic (and the constant stream of others doing the same while walking by) with your starters, you could do worse than here.

Grabbed a pizza there, which was good and a bit cheaper than other places. However, staff refuses to accept credit cards below 20€.
