Description: Spreading its wings far from Shoreditch’s Rivington Street original in London, Rivington Grill, Souk Al Bahar was the first to open in Dubai, followed by a second, Rivington Bar and Grill that opened in 2012. The restaurant, located in the cosmopolitan Downtown area, is very well known in Dubai and is famed and loved for its seasonal menu, simplistic décor, friendly staff and fantastic views. The Rivington Grill concept is ‘back to basics’ home cooked food, offering authentic British classics, with what the chef’s call ‘a Rivi twist’.The adjoining terrace is the restaurant’s highlight; sitting over the water ways of the Dubai Fountains, with the Burj Khalifa looming just meters away, it offers one of the best vistas in the city, and makes a great space for sundowners and dinner parties at dusk. As well as the á la carte menu and the blackboard specials, the restaurant also offers ‘The Rivi Lunch Hour’ which is a new take on the common ‘business lunch’, where a 2 course lunch will be all done and dusted within an hour for just 100 AED.

I've eaten at the Rivington Grill on a number of occasions now and I have never been disappointed. The lunches are very good value and in the evenings the fabulous location is enough to justify the prices. Having said that however, the Beef Wellington is the best I have ever tasted and the overall quality of the food is matched by the excellent service. Definitely worth a visit and try to book well in advance if you want an outside table with a view of the dancing fountains and the Burj Khalifa.

We simply went to this place to have a nice lunch after turning around the souk.
And discovered they had a terrace with perfect view on the fountain and Burj Khalifa in the back.
Waitress told us the time of fountain, which we could see twice and take a lot of nice pictures.
Lunch was excellent, and they also had good wine.
A place to recommend.

For a local Dubai person and having been there 3 times the menu is in need of a complete refresh as I am now board of the same old, same old! However if you are knew to Dubai on vacation it’s a wonderful setting while watching the captivating fountains and the Burj Khalifa glittering on the half hour, all you need is Mickey mouse and you have Disney Dubai! Oh, did I mention the music? Just when you think the water will dance to authentic Arab music, on comes Whitney Houston (or worse). The food is good, the menu tired and the view excellent, but you will not go back more than once.

We have been a few times & had been given the big sell from friends. Nice location, but we thought the food was just pretty average really, especially for the price

The best steak I have ever eaten. Totally fabulous. Do not miss the duck terrine or the Eton Mess. All are works of art but so tasty it is untrue.
