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.

    The service was excellent. Staff very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The afternoon tea was excellent, everything very fresh. Nothing was too much trouble for the serving staff. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

    Excellent food and very good service. Be aware Rivea doesn't accept more then four credit cards being used for paying the bill per table?! We were group of ten and the bill was hefty.

    Great - helpful staff and delicious food. Both stone bass ceviche and veal blanquette deserved a star.

  • ((((( 23 February 2017 by Susan from London

    Every dish we tried was superb (stand outs being the vitello tonnato & egg w/truffle). Lovely staff, who really went out of their way to look after us. We agreed that, if restaurant was nearer home, we'd be regulars.
