The food here is average, nothing special. Prices a bit high for the food served. Had the steak and it was decent. Nothing to write home about.

Was a regular visitor for early breakfast under old Management. Visited regularly since new Management too over. Last two breakfasts were terrible with half cooked tomatoes & Potatoe Cakes which were raw and uncooked. I had noticed a lot of the regulars had disappeared and i can now see why. Service is just OK

Still a good night because of the really pleasant waitress waiting our... More

Just had lunch in Riva. Lovely and warm inside, atmosphere was very welcoming. I had a vegetarian meal which was very tasty and my companions had the fish and chips and the carbonara respectively, all were beautifully presented and very good. The service was great, very helpful. Well done.

Not once were we asked if everything was ok, no one approached the table unless we looked for them outside of bringing food or drinks. On the upside the food was nice but spoiled by... More

Have been a regular visitor here for our Saturday morning family treat for the past few years. Over the past few months, it has gone quickly down hill. Having given the new owners ample time to get up and running, our latest visit was the worst yet. Food came to the table verging on overdone! Unfortunately the waitress had not... More
