As one of the other reviewers mentioned, this place was recommended by the crew of our vessel. Don't know if they get a kick-back and we did have a good look around to see if there was anywhere else we fancied, but this really did look the best and indeed we were very happy.

It is set off the main seafront strip in a spacious courtyard and is quite smart. A complimentary humus appetiser was served. We both ordered the Lamb in Rosemary and Red wine which came with vegetables and fries; this was a generous portion and delicious. We also ordered a carafe of the house wine.

Didn't have room for a pud.

Not brimming with atmosphere, but since we were with a party of nine it didn't really matter. Definitely worth a visit.

Went here as recommended by our vessels crew and very pleasantly surprised. Overall service was excellent from arrival until departure. Quiet location away from the waterfront in a very nice open courtyard was a big plus and food was very good. They have a nice touch by serving everyone from trolleys which works very well.

Nicely located in a courtyard behind the buildings on the seafront (walked past twice before we found it). We arrived early and service was excellent - until we finished eating when it had got quite busy and it took 30 minutes to get the bill. Food was pleasant without being special. As we were only in Makarska for one night, I cannot say how Riva compares with others there, but we certainly had better food elsewhere.
