We wanted a light lunch yesterday and we were very happy with Riva. Mary had shrimp risotto and I had monkfish & shiitake mushroom risotto. Both were excellent and Ivan (the waiter) was really good. The local white wine, Vino Kuce Bijelo, balanced the risottos and was reasonable value at 130kn (€18). Our bill for lunch for 2 including bottle of wine, sparking water, tea and coffee was €53. Good value for a fine restaurant like Riva.

Restaurant Riva is the perfect combination of exceptional service and great food. We have visited this restaurant 4 years in a row and they exceed all expectations every single time we visit.
Service is outstanding, personal, high quality professional and very warm. Ivan has been our waiter for at least two years and his knowledge and level of professionalism is fantastic. Highly recommend him!
And of course the food: sea food and fish dishes - especially medium done tuna steak are fresh, full of flavour and simply excellent! Brilliant are also the risottos! Make sure you try their pavlova as desert!

This is our fifth time in Croatia so trust me when I say that we have tried A LOT of restaurants. Good and bad. Riva is the one to go to for the best night of your holiday in Makarska! You wont regret coming to Riva!

Reading comments like this one make us very proud. Us as a team, boss as well. There is no enough words to express our feelings and how much happy we are when we read this. "Riva" is a project that lasts for years, so when we have reviews like this, it means that we are on the wright way. It is impossible to be perfect but we will always keep trying to be closest to that. It is our obligation to put the hardest effort, learn every day how to satisfy guests like you and the other beautiful people who decided spend they time in our restaurant. So once again, in the name of your waiter Ivan and the whole other stuff in our restaurant, we would like to thank you once again. We hope that you will visit us again soon :))))
Lots of love to our Finland guests from Riva team <3

We spent two nights in the town so we had dinner at Riva the first night and drinks the second night. This place is right on the beach and a divine place to sip wine and watch the sun set. The food is fresh and delicious and the staff fast and friendly.

The restaurant is centrally located, but the terrace and ambience are like you are somewhere else.
The restaurant has a wonderful terrace, we have never seen a better offer of fish, it looks as if the fishermen have caught it now! We ate live lobsters and stews in a sailor way and green noodles and cuttlefish. Waiters are professional and special thanks to the kitchen .. Desserts are for five.
Thank you so much for a wonderful dinner .. see you again and this restaurant is something everyone must feel !!
Thank you!!
