Having spent 10 years working under the tutelage of Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse in London and Paris, it’s no surprise that Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas' menu takes inspiration from Italian and French dining traditions. With an interior designed by Italian architect and designer Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, Rivea restaurant in London brings the spirit of the chic French and Italian Riviera to the Bulgari Hotel at the heart of the British capital.

Focusing on utilising simple and fresh ingredients to bring out the flavours, the Rivea London menu is vibrant and bold. Inspired by the bustling food markets in Italy and Provence, the Mediterranean menu features the likes of warm octopus and potato salad, and aubergine caviar. Main courses from the Rivea London menu include line-caught tuna with sautéed vegetables and agrodolce sauce, and seared beef fillet, crushed potatoes with olive oil.

A carefully-selected wine list complements the menu, showcasing small artisanal producers alongside iconic winemakers, all sourced from France and Italy.

Offering elegant cuisine and a relaxed ambience, Rivea London in Knightsbridge sits 2 minutes’ walk from Knightsbridge Tube Station.

    Absolutely delicious meal and cocktail - incredibly good value for money. The staff were delightful and both my companion and I loved the experience.

    We visited Rivea after a food blogger friend recommended the Bookatable Star Deal. The staff treated us like any other diner - with attentive, thoughtful, friendly service. The dinner itself was very tasty, with a mix of interesting flavours and good meat / seafood / vegetarian options. Loved the aperitif which was a mix of crudites with various interesting dips - sounds basic but definitely to be tasted! As a coeliac, I often find menus are limited - but I was able to have most of the menu and was made to feel any alterations were happily done. Recommend!

    A lovely relaxing atmosphere with a warm welcome. The elegant, although austere, exterior opens up into a comfortable well-designed lounge and bar with the restaurant tucked away downstairs. This works well for a romantic dinner or sharing food with friends. The service is friendly and professional and the food inventive and excellent quality, well presented.

    Outstanding. Angelo our waiter was superb and entertaining as was the bar waiter Vincenzo. All four courses were delicious beautifully prepared and presented. Starters were particularly good. Definitely one to go back to and great value.

    Everything was good from start to finish,from service to food really enjoyed it.

  • ((((* 4 April 2017 by Olivia from London

    The dinner offer included a tequila-based cocktail, two starters, main course and dessert and it was all delicious, especially the starters. The bread and dip selection provided was unusual and eye-catching. We asked for wine recommendations and the sommelier gave good advice about some interesting wines. Although the dining room is in a basement, the room is spacious and the lighting is subdued and elegant in the evening. Rivea also offers a good lunch menu deal (not on Sundays which has a special menu).

    Excellent service. Some food ok. Some better than ok but the obscenely expensive wine list made it a very expensive meal - even on a so-called deal - so we won't be coming back.
